Jay Electronica Floats Over Nujabes Beats on a New Mash-Up Tape

DJaytiger extends a run of crucial blends.

Jay Electronica and Nujabes never got a chance to connect before the producer passed. But DJaytiger's Nu Electronica mash-up mixtape has resurfaced. And it's a great opportunity to imagine what could have been.

On the mash-up maestro's revived 2019 tape, classic and loose Jay Electronica verses find a fitting home on the airy, yet potent, suites of the late Japanese producer. "Exhibit A" gets paired with Nujabes' "Day By Day," "True Lightyears" meets "Grey Matter" (complete with an MF DOOM appearance,) "Fat Belly Bella" floats over "Prayer," and "We Made It" washes across "Unstoppable." And that's just the tip of this 19-track behemoth.

Nu Electronica extends DJaytiger's run of crucial blends, which have included era-blurring links between DJ Premier and Nipsey Hussle on The Premier Hussle, The Notorious B.I.G. and James Brown on The Notorious James Brown, and most recently, Wu-Tang Clan and J Dilla on Dilla Rules Everything Around Me (D.R.E.A.M.)
