In honor of Dilla month and the 10th anniversary of J Dilla’s passing, New York producer Dezo Williams gives us a hard-hitting tribute instrumental ‘Spirit Of Dilla’.
This track was composed of multiple samples and soundbytes straight from Dilla tracks, as well as compiled ‘dead-air’ spots from numerous J Dilla raps which overlays throughout the entire track to serve as the ‘Spirit Of Dilla’.
The climax of this funky tribute sees Dilla cheering Dezo on in continuing to carry the torch that was lit by Dilla himself in his work. Ending with a stamp of approval in the form of an echoing,
“It’s Like That!”
