Le Discopathe Montpellier - Soul Supreme - J Dilla - 2021 - Available

After a sling of instantly sold-out 45s through his Bandcamp (we're talking minutes here), it's tempting to say that Soul Supreme got a Midas touch. But that doesn't do justice to his hard work and carefully crafted reinterpretations of music by A Tribe Called Quest, Madvillain, Mos Def & others. The newest addition: not one but two 45s around Jay Dee a.k.a. J Dilla.

The Amsterdam-based keyboardist/producer takes on 'Let's Ride' (Q-Tip) and 'Runnin' (The Pharcyde) on the first donut. This other 45 contains a medley of 'The Official' (Jaylib) and 'Fall In Love' (Slum Village), and two unsung Jay Dee beats: 'Still Shining,' as produced for Busta Rhymes, which has never seen the light of day as an instrumental. Another never-before-released Jay Dee beat is 'Feelin' Good', an essential case of Dilla's unparalleled ear for swing. Sidetrack: look up the Bling47 Breaks video later with House Shoes's story on giving Jay Dee the Frank Cunimondo Trio record, with a VHS video of T3 and Baatin going crazy in Detroit's The Shelter to Jay Dee's 'Feelin' Good' flip. Pure gold.

The Detroit visionary reimagined 'groove' and sampling. On his turn, Soul Supreme takes on Dilla's timing, rhythms, and harmonies. Think of how in the final part of "Runnin'," the keys start to follow the well-hidden, heavily filtered sample on The Pharcyde's original, instead of the main melody. Or how there's punch to J-Zone's drumming on "Let's Ride" as there's punch to the MPC3000. How Jonny Murray improvises on trumpet rather than replaying the sample. The marriage of Rhodes and synths on "Fall In Love" resemble Soul Supreme's trademark sound as showcased on last year's self-titled LP. Built on top of that, the two 45 releases (sold separately) are all-original takes on Jay Dee-produced classics.

Completed during a year in which J Dilla spent mostly in a hospital bed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Donuts would gain particular poignancy when, only three days after it's release, February 10, 2006, the artist passed away, losing his battle with a rare blood disease.The original LP pressing of Donuts had the "Donut" album cover, illustrated by Jeff Jank. The vinyl was later reissued with the "Smile" photograph cover, and the version with the drawing sleeve slowly went out of print. For the 10th anniversary of Donuts, the album was reissued with the original 'Donut' cover, for a limited run with a gatefold sleeve that includes liner notes about the making of the album from the book Donuts 33 1/3, written by Jordan Ferguson. Also released as a 45rpm boxed set (STH2309) consisting of seven 7-inch singles ... plus one extra.In 2015, four unique numbered vinyl editions of the album were reissued for the Vinyl Me, Please record subscription club. However, most subscribers initially received copies with a defective 'whoosh' sound on side A. In response, Vinyl Me, Please subsequently provided subscribers with a replacement copy of the defective first disc. Discogs Notice: Each variation should be submitted as a unique release.
