Welcome 2 Detroit
Jay Dee
12" Vinyl

Product Description

As a third of Slum Village, a fourth of the Soulquarians, and one of hip-hop's most sought-after producers and remixers, Jay Dee boasts one of the most distinctive sounds in hip-hop, a down-and-dirty brand of underground minimalism that draws heavily on the neck-snapping drums of idol Pete Rock. Minimalist almost to a fault, Jay Dee's work can seem sterile and monotonous, but Welcome 2 Detroit showcases him at his loosest and most experimental, staying true to his trademark style while experimenting with Latin rhythms, spacey jazz, and even sci-fi synthesizers. Jay Dee has often been criticized for his less-than-stellar rhymes, but while the rapping on Detroit won't make anyone forget KRS-One or Rakim, it possesses an appealing directness that recalls the early work of Black Moon. Jay Dee and his mostly unknown Motor City compatriots may not rap about much beyond their ghetto-fabulous lifestyles and the respect that should be afforded them, but his grimy, dynamic, unpredictable production work makes the stale subject matter wholly forgivable. Never wearing out its welcome, Welcome 2 Detroit sets a high standard for Jay Dee's Beat Generation peers..
