The 8 X 7" box set version of this classic batch of instrumentals from J Dilla – one that strongly transcends the hip hop genre – and perhaps his rawest, and most adventurous listening experience ever! The loopy soul samples, rich synth/electro shine, and thumping bass and soul beats that Dilla largely made his name on are laced throughout, but he also takes things a step into stranger territory – with spacey elements that buzz as much as they groove! The cuts are never less than soulful and funky, and never really steps into his peer Madlib's brand of the weeded out style, either. We love how raw this all feels, too! It's easily identifiable as the work of Jay Dee, but at the same time, wholly unpredictable! One of the best releases that Stone's Throw ever released – instrumental or vocal! Includes "Donuts (Intro & Outro)", "Workinonit", "Waves", "Light My Fire", "People", "Mash", "Airworks", "Lightworks", "Stepson Of The Clapper", "One Eleven", "Don't Cry", "Geek Down", "Thunder", "Gobstopper", "Walkinonit", "U-Love", "Last Donut Of The Night" and more. Extra Bites bonus 45 includes "Signs", plus "Sniper Elite" and "Murder Goons" with Ghostface & MF Doom. (8 X 7" box set edition – with bonus tracks not on the original release. Please note: demand was far greater than the number released to retailers – so all shipments were allotted – and we were lucky to get just a few. Quantities extremely limited!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Gees (voc, inst)
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy
Funk steeped production from Musca and tight, no nonsense rhymes from Guilty Simpson! "Gees" has some fusion funk keyboards prominent in the tight production – with a heavy beat that frames Guilty's rhymes just right! The Musca instrumental is on the flip. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Do The James (voc, inst)
Mobile Mondays, 1987. New Copy (reissue)
A stone classic from Super Lover Cee & Casanova Rud – and a mighty tribute to the Godfather Of Funk! The lyrics tell of a new dance called "The James Brown" – but the real treat is the use of James Brown breaks and beats – a very old school blend of wicked funk ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
