This Tuesday (Feb. 7th) would have marked the 43rd birthday of one of Detroit’s brightest musical imports, J Dilla. With a variety of cities across the nation paying homage to the understated producer-rapper (as well as Dilla’s MPCs enshrined in the Smithsonian), Spain’s Cookin’ Soul tribute Jay Dee in their own way.
Using “one Roland SP 404sx sampler, one turntable and one laptop,” Cookin’ Soul performed a live tribute set in Brussels. Playing everything from Busta Rhymes to D’Angelo, over twenty songs were expertly mixed and blended. Best of all, CS is offering up this mix for a free download at their e-home as well.
