Jaylib (Madlib & J Dilla) – Louder (Blast Your Radio Theme)

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Appearing on the latest Madlib album, is a track him and J Dilla had recorded for the never-realized second Jaylib album.

Jaylib was formed in 2002 as Madlib & Dilla recorded separately in Los Angeles and Detroit. Their one album, Champion Sound, was released in 2003. When J Dilla moved to Los Angeles, he, Madlib and J Rocc began doing shows together as Jaylib, performing together for the first time at the Madvillain record release party in April 2004.

Madlib and Dilla collaborated primarily through the exchange of beat tapes, occasionally reworking each others material, or chopping the same beat in a kind of recorded call-and-response.

Germany’s splash!-Mag talks to PBW:

We show artists twelve inches and talk about those records and the musical influence and significance they had or still have. We get to know how that particular record was recorded or what the artwork stands for. In our premier show, Stones Throw CEO Peanut Butter Wolf reveals several untold stories.

Or do you know that Madlib had to produce “Shades of Blue” twice, due to an unfortunate incident? Do you know the story behind the Jaylib record? Or how Guilty Simpson landed on Stones Throw?

MP3s don’t tell those stories and CDs are crap anyway, on that note: save the vinyl!
