Missed Mixtapes – #4
NTS Radio’s Dom Roarty provides XWHY with a series of Mixtapes that don’t deserve to be missed
I know it isn’t Dilla season, but… I urge you all to listen to this.
This mixtape, curated by Benji B, will walk you through Jay Dee’s career with clips from his 2001 interview with Gilles Peterson and many tracks from his extensive back catalogue.
He takes you through the creative process of producing, his influences and tales from the studio. Expect to hear about D’Angelo, Pharcyde, Erykah Badu, Slum Village and Janet Jackson, amongst others.
For those who know about Jay Dee’s contribution to Hip Hop, this is a nice reminder. For those who don’t, it is an education.
