In other House Shoes related news, in celebration of James “J Dilla” Yancey’s 40th birthday, House Shoes presents the first half of the follow up to his critically acclaimed “The King James Version” mix, paying tribute to one of, if not the best producer in Hip Hop’s history by strolling through some more of the records that were mined by Dilla for his productions. From Jazz, to Soul, to Moog, Electronica and more. This mix serves as a reminder to show how broad the range of music that inspired him was. Taken from all original vinyl.
