In the years since his death, J Dilla‘s vault of has been excavated and disseminated at an alarming rate. More recently, the tide has come to a crawl. And save for a few trusted disciples with personal collections and ties to the Yancey family, access to the trove has become increasingly guarded.
Luckily, fans have an ace in House Shoes. Earlier this week, the producer and DJ sent up a set of tributary mixes in observance of Dilla Day (Month? Year? Life?) featuring hours of supplementary gems for even the broadest of Dilla catalogs. His latest transmission arrives as a bonus episode to the ongoing Magix mix series. No tracklist for reference, just an hour-plus of grail-level Dilla rarities, remixes, and unreleased suites, stitched together from the personal stash of a close friend (and internal archivist) of an incalculable music legacy.
