6 years in the making, this project by Vice has been put together with the utmost care, thought, and it is to be a not for profit release where all proceedings will goto the James Dewitt Yancey Foundation (organisation set up after J Dilla’s death to help enhance local music programs, and scholarships awarded to students in selected US cities each year to further their musical education.)
The full project will be set for release on Friday 7th February in line with J Dilla’s birthday, however the first track/single ’That Love’ has dropped today.
Vice Beats- That Love
That Love is the only reworking on Dilla: The Timeless Tribute which stays true to the original. Having been one of Vice Beat’s favourite Dilla beats, he wanted to create a version of Fall In Love.
The track features the multi talented wordsmith Audessey aka. Jack Jones of Soundsci, alongside the beautiful choral and instrumental elements supplied by Greg Blackman, finished off with live outro drums from Brazilian drummer and percussionist Knuf.
Vice beats has been producing music as a solo artist alongside collaborations independently under his own label imprint - EQ Music.
Most notably, Vice Beats has collaborated with Gardna, Great Scott, Panacea (Rawkus Records), Replife and The Scribes, plus sharing stages through his various projects with Scroobius Pip, Speech Debelle, Lazy Habits and Paper Tiger to name but a few.
Vice Beats presents - Dilla: The Timeless Tribute is truly a work of art and something so special, it will evoke the need to listen from start to finish and get you reflecting and connecting to be a part of this immutable musical conversation #dillastories
