Earlier this year, leading digital DJ platform Serato dropped a new version of their software based around the work and life of legendary producer J. Dilla. The package was done in collaboration with Dilla’s former label Stones Throw Records, and included two brand new vinyl records that contained six unreleased tracks from the producer.
Now after a good five months on the market, Stones Throw has officially released those Dilla tracks to the public in a new EP package, titled Donut Shop, according to TheBoomBox.com.
You can download the EP pack for free over at StonesThrow.com now.
The EP comes with three brand new, never-before-released Dilla tracks, including the Men Without Hats-sampling “Safety Dance,” “Sycamore” and “Bars & Twists.” There’s also three instrumentals that have appeared on albums from Dilla’s frequent collaborators and industry friends.
There’s “History”, a beat used by Mos Def on The Ecstatic; there is “Move,” which was used by Q-Tip on 2008’s The Renaissance and beautifully samples Michael Jackson; and finally, the EP closes-out with the Busta Rhymes number “Can’t Hold a Torch.”
