Inspired and blown away, we found ourselves after listening to this yesterday for the very first time. We've all heard Dilla's music and we've heard him rap, but in far and few occasions did we get to hear him talk about his music. In this recorded episode of (the great) Giles Peterson's Worldwide program on BBC 6 from February 2001, Dilla speaks about his experience working on several of his greatest productions. He gets into good detail about his experiences working with Slum Village, to Pharcyde, to Janet Jackson and more. It's really incredible to hear these accounts told from his own mouth. He shares with listeners personal feelings, insider stories and more. Dilla's been gone for over 7 years now, and this recording took place just over 12 years back. It's so nice to and refreshing to hear his voice. As is the case among many others in this funny little world of independent music, Jay Dee is one of our heroes and greatest inspirations behind what we do at SAFE. He championed the concept and development of the Producer-Artist, the way of the future, far ahead of its time. His spirit remains alive in all of us, and his legacy is only going to continue spreading to larger scale throughout the world. Cliché by all means in effect: He most definitely did change our lives. Long live the Champion Sound of Detroit.
Shout to Rappcats, for making us aware of this one, we've always loved what they do.
