House Shoes & DJ Rhettmatic – King James Version Chapter 1-5 (J Dilla Tribute LP)

To officially kick off J Dilla's month DJ House Shoes has released King James Version Chapter 1-5 to the masses for  free. These chapters were mixed and arranged by House Shoes and recorded/mastered by LA's Rhettmatic in 2008 from the original vinyl sampled by J Dilla. House Shoes takes us on a journey through the records that Dilla used to craft the classics we all fell in love with. Some of the samples are instantly recognizeable, but others are great because they show how creative Dilla had to be to chop and manipulate them to be the gems they would become for other artists.

Here’s what some of the people close to Dilla had to say:

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

Amir -”Mad people always talk about how much they love music but my man House Shoes is THE only one I know that consistently holds it down! His knowledge and skill cannot be questioned…basically he is the MAN! I am just the man siitin’ next to the MAN!“

Rhettmatic – “The King James Version is a must for all you hardcore Dilla fans or for Sample Heads. Shoes is the only person besides J.Rocc who can put something together like this…..listening to this will make your head crack! Don’t sleep!“

J-Rocc – “Houseshoes seems to have it all….life isn’t fair sometime. After listening to this you’ll ask yourself how did Dilla do it. All Hail King James (both of em)“

Black Milk - “House Shoes just showed us how much of a genius dilla was even more with this cd and how crazy dillas record collection was im just now finding some of these samples…dilla was light years ahead of us…“
