Mix of the Day: HouseShoes “King James Version”

Hip-Hop Soul

via Redefinition Records: “House Shoes presents The King James Version Chapter One: Verses One – Four (2LP, Black Vinyl Mixtape)

Follow HouseShoes on Soundcloud: @houseshoes

This is a lovingly and expertly constructed journey through the building blocks of Dilla’s beats – the dusty OG vinyl grooves that he sampled. From the basis of a Frank-N-Dank cult favorite, through that of a Fantastic SV moment, to Donuts’ irresistible ingredients, Shoes’ thorough work shines the light on his friend’s ear for a sneaky loop, his affection for perfectly imperfect chops and his knack for extracting the soul from a forgotten musical fragment and making it something altogether new, something his own. Long Live King James” -Chairman Mao XXLMag/EgoTrip

Mixed and Arranged By HOUSE SHOES
Recorded By RHETTMATIC (Beat Junkies)
All Tracks Taken From Original Vinyl”

2LP, Black Vinyl
Total: 75 minutes & 19 seconds

“House Shoes just showed us how much of a genius Dilla was even more with this cd and how crazy Dilla’s record collection was… I’m just now finding some of these samples…He was light years ahead of us…”-Black Milk

“This King James shit is nutz. No homo.”-T3(Slum Village)
