In his brief 32 years J-Dilla, otherwise known as Jay-Dee or James Yancey created and shaped a new sound for Hip-Hop that inspired beat smiths, MCs and music lovers around the globe. With an incredible line of production credits for De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, The Pharcyde, Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes, Common, D’Angelo, his own crew Slum Village and so many more it is little wonder that J-Dilla has been described as a visionary, a genius & the quintessential producers’ producer by some of the most respected names in the game. The fact that both Pharell Williams & Kanye West name him as their major inspiration speaks volumes to the influence of his distinctive “Dilla sound”.

His own albums “Rough Draft” & “Donuts” on Stones Throw, “Welcome 2 Detroit” & “The Shining” on BBE Records” stand out as masterpieces of modern music production and capture the imagination of producers, DJs & all music lovers across the world..

With this very special limited edition collectors box-set, we conclude the Dillanthology series, giving fans the ultimate overview of all things Dilla.

With Dilla, there was no such thing as a “standard beat.” Each production was a mini-masterpiece filled with curves but avoiding any sense of gimmickry. Whether it’s turning Stan Getz’s bossa-laced “Saudade Vem Correndo” into The Pharcyde’s “Drop,” or jazz pianist Ahmad Jamal’s “Swahililand” into De La Soul’s high-energy commentary on hip-hop “Stakes is High,” Dilla’s expertise made even the most ubiquitous of samples unrecognizable.
