As a tribute to J Dilla, Detroit’s Will Sessions – known for their recreation of the beats for eLZhi‘s Elmatic – released HBDJD, two renditions of Jay Dee beats on his birthday a few days ago. This is the group’s first release since their solo album, Mix Takes back in 2012.Even though there are only two tracks, each one perfectly captures the vibes of Dilla’s classic basslines and groovy struts. The first instrumental is “Beat #14” off of Another Batch ’98, while the second instrumental is a rework of “Yeah… More Classic Tar… Checkitout” off of both Hiccuped Classix and The SV Tour Beat CD. Stream and download HBDJD below.
