Karriem Riggins and J.Rocc perform Dilla in the Stones Throw dungeon
Dilla’s friends pay homage.
It’s Dilla season. February 2016 marks the tenth anniversary of James Yancey’s passing and with it comes a seasonal set of tributes and celebrations of his work and its ongoing legacy.
Earlier this week, Stones Throw shared a video shot in their dungeon featuring two close Dilla collaborators: Karriem Riggins, on drums, and J.Rocc, on turntables. The video was shot using Go Pro’s 360 technology.
The pair jam it out for close to 5 minutes with re-interpretations of Dilla’s ‘Lightworks’ from the Donuts album and ‘E=MC2’ from The Shining album.
