In this edition of Sample Flippers, I bring to you J. Dilla. J. Dilla is widely thought of as being one of the best beat makers in the world of music and most commonly known for his natural sounding drum techniques. As a former member of the group Slum Village, Jay Dee’s production shined bright, and solidified him as one of the best hip-hop producers to touch an MPC.
The song entitled “Players” off of the “Fantastic” Vol. 2 By Slum Village contains a sample from a quintet group called the The Singers Unlimited. The song that Dilla sample was “Clair”. The way J. Dilla flipped the sample made for a very soulful track with the word Clair being heard as if it was saying players in which the groups concept of talking about player haters in their midst.
