Single Pay Jay 2013

Description: First single from J Dilla's infamous "long lost" vocal album, mixed and mastered for the first time, and released by the Estate of James Yancey.

FULL DETAILS & AUDIO: J DILLA - ANTHEM 12"

These tracks come straight from multi-track masters found on 2-inch tape shortly after Dilla’s passing in 2006. These songs have been mixed by engineer Dave Cooley, who worked extensively with Dilla during his years in Los Angeles. Using Dilla’s original demo mixes as his guide, Cooley attempted to finalize Dilla’s vision for these tracks, while keeping all of the elements that Dilla had in place in his original demos present.

Rounding out this 12” is Dilla’s original mix of “Trucks” discovered as a two-track demo mix, featuring an alternate version of Dilla’s vocals and a third verse not found on Dilla’s final sessions for this song.
