Pardon my absence the past day or so was busy with birthday celebrations, but we have a lot to catch up on. One of many musical gifts we received this week was a digital stream of the previously vinyl-only album “Dillatroit” by none other than the late great producer J Dilla. Dilla passed away at the young age of 32 and left behind a highly respected legacy as one of the most hardworking and best producers to ever live.

Because Dilla was a studio rat, year after year we seem to be blessed with unreleased beats and this project is a compilation that includes many of these gems. “Dillatroit” was officially released by Ma Dukes (J Dilla’s mother) and the Yancy Media Group last year in vinyl only, so it was extremely hard to come by.

While there isn’t that much rapping on the album, these instrumentals are music to the ears of J Dilla fans around the world and the guest appearances stay true to the Dilla sound; unlike some posthumous projects that are made simply to make money off the death of the artists. We have continued to get great music from Illa J (J Dilla’s brother) and Frank Nitt, most recently on the Yancey Boys Sunset Blvd. album that fully consisted of J Dilla production. Nevertheless, we are extremely happy that Dillatroit has been made available for digital stream as this project flows more like a classic Dilla tape.

Click here to stream to Dillatriot and you can support by buying it on Amazon. If you are craving more J Dilla beats afterwards, listen below to the Yancey Boys Sunset Blvd that came out this year.
