I'm doing a Dilla tribute project. An article with several interesting people's top 10 Dilla beats. Won't reveal who these people are yet, but it'll be an impressive lineup. Will be published Feb 10th.

I want to include STMB as a person in this.

So please, post your top 10 Dilla beats in an orderly, numbered fashion.

Like this:

1. For whom - Song Name - Album (year, if you know)
2...
3...

Thanks for you help!

It is a real challenge.

Btw, I spoke to a very wise man yesterday and he said "I would cringe seeing any list were people try to out-”rare” each other".
Keep that in mind, don't think when selecting your favorites just jott the ones down that you remember touching you.

Ok,
First of all STMB, I apologize.
Due to the lack of posting in this thread among other things I'm afraid I haven't been able to conclude a STMB list.
But if you're interested, here are,
Black Milk's, Illa J's, Guilty Simpson's among many others, favorite J Dilla beats: http://sofakingdilig...76/3-years-ago/
+ an amazing artpiece made by Theodor3 which I'm sure you all know from here already.
All in honor of James.

Once again, I'm sorry.

Hello everyone, I'm really into J.Dilla's music for about 1 year, but I discovered him some weeks after his passing. No doubt, he made me understand and love Hip Hop music.

I also love many Madlib beats and other Stones Throw projects, and of course a lot of other music, like House music from France (I'm French) and Chicago, Detroit Techno, some Funk and Jazz stuff etc.

Back to the topic, my top 10 DIlla beats right now :

-J.Dilla - Workinonit
-Four Tet - As Serious As Your Life (Jay Dee Remix ft. Guilty Simpson)
-Slum Village - The Look Of Love
-J.Dilla - The $
-The Pharcyde - Runnin'
-The Pharcyde - Bullshit
-J.Dilla - Crushin'
-De La Soul - Thru Ya City
-Illa J - R U Listenin'
-Jay Dee - 2 Morrow (Discovered on Youtube, it's great, from a beat tape : )

REST IN BEATS JAMES !
