Instrumental Mixtape - J Dilla's Side (2006)

Instrumental Mixtape - J Dilla's Side (2006)

About the show

Playing tracks by

M.E.D., Busta Rhymes, Tupac, Janet Jackson, The Pharcyde and more.

I made this instrumental mixtape shortly after J Dilla died in 2006. A mix of Madlib instrumentals on the other side of that cassette: https://www.mixcloud.com/leenknecht/instrumental-mixtape-madlibs-side/

"Back in 2006 I heard about a bunch of rappers who came together in ‘het Zuidpark’ in Ghent, Belgium. I went over there and heard them rhyme all night, they only needed a small radio, battery's, ‘Cara-pils’ and a cassette. And when they ran out of battery's, one of the MC's putted his lips together for a proper beatbox. The setting was nearly perfect, perhaps the cassettes they used had large pauses between every instrumental track.

At the same time those MC's organized a monthly indoor version of the cypher, better known as ‘9000 Sessies’. It was the perfect party for lyricists and hip-hop-lovers with open-mic sessions and loads of showcases.
