The deeply in-demand beats for Jay Dee's now classic 2001 effort! We don't need to tell you that Welcome 2 Detroit turned out to be a wonderful debut for the initial BBE hip hop series. It really started out as a breakbeat project from the late Detroit legend, but soon morphed into a full-on hip hop album – complete with live instrumentation on Fender Rhodes, trumpet, keyboards, and drums, with lyrics on about half of the tracks. This one returns the project to more of that pre-planned breakbeat feel. A stellar set, with lyrics, or without – one that laid the groundwork for Dilla's subsequent production aesthetic! Features great remakes of "African Rhythms" (Oneness of Juju), "Brazilian Groove" (Earth Wind & Fire), and "Think Twice" (Donald Byrd), plus the cuts "Y'all Ain't Ready", "Shake It Down", "Give It Up", "The Clapper", and "Come Get It", "Think Twice" and more. (Limited 2LP repress for its 10th Anniversary.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
