Just when you thought all the Dilla bases had been covered, the good folks at Bling47.com (Wajeed and fam) come out with an absolutely great look into some of the greatest sample flips by James Yancey aka Jay Dee. The reason that these short clips are so fascinating is that they are recounted by some of Dilla’s close collaborators but also because Jay Dee was probably the one producer who ventured very far from only sampling funk & soul breaks.

Bling47.com was founded by Waajeed and Jackie O and in 2001. With the help of Kenny Fresh of Fresh Selects and a few other dedicated comrades, we quickly grew into a label and management team for our city’s best artists.

On hiatus since 2008, we’ve been working hard to come back even bigger and better. At Bling47.com, quality prevails over quantity and with our new label partners Dutty Tech and Ambion Records we promise to continue to bring you fresh and progressive ideas from the depths of our beloved Detroit and worldwide.
