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.
