This show was 1st in the global old school hip hop chart, 8th in the global hip-hop/rap chart, 19th in the global soul chart and 44th in the global hip hop chart.
Everybody loves J Dilla. But not many take on the challenge to create “reworkings of Dilla’s music” to turn them into “new hip-hop and soul compositions.” In three months, UK producer Vice Beats will share his Dilla interpretations with the world, dubbed 'Dilla: The Timeless Tribute.' A timeless donut of the heart from a fan first, producer second.
In this brand new guest mix, he features a few previews of it, as well as music by his personal "heroes" such as De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Ty, Children of Zeus, Nubiyan Twist, Mecca:83, and, of course, J Dilla.
Accompanying this mix, we caught up with Vice Beats to talk about his upcoming Miguel Atwood-Ferguson-inspired tribute LP. As well as his background in music for those who aren’t familiar with Vice Beats yet.
