Sergent Records Drops 1st Down's (J Dilla & Phat Kat) Unreleased Demos ca 96-97 + EP Preview
More delightful news for the resident donut lovers: Phat Kat and Sergent Records dropped a 5 track EP of unreleased 1st Down (Kat & J Dilla) demos for you to bump with this morning’s cup of coffee. For those unaware, Kat and Jay Dee were longtime partners in crime, with some even claiming that he was Dilla’s favorite collaborator (peep Slum Village‘s “Fat Cat Song” or Kat’s “Dedication To The Suckers”.) Though it certainly wasn’t promoted all that well (nor do we know the level of the foundation‘s involvement, if any) but the appropriately titled Detroit’s Finest EP is out now and can be copped via Sergent Records, but get on it quickly, cause they’re being sold in extremely limited quantities.
Only 250 Dilla disciples will be able to get their hands on this numbered EP, making this one for the OKP wish list. I guess we’ll just have to settle with some snippets. Head over to Sergent to get your hands and ears on J Dilla and Phat Kat’s unheard 1st Down recordings and if you need some convincing, just peep the album preview down below. Get your day started on the good foot and put one up for Dilla, fam.
