about

Every February we honor James Dewitt "J DIlla" Yancey's birth, passing & the release of his classic album "DONUTS" in 2006.

Down in picturesque Auckland, New Zealand, tucked in a small basement studio, musician Leonard Charles & friends paid tribute to Dilla's landmark release by re-recording the entire 31-track album on live instruments. Charles gives the tracks a modern funk reinterpretation on live bass, drums, clavinet, Rhodes & synths - sans any sampling of the original source or sourced material. Featuring vocals by Anji Toy, Adi Dick, Ruby Walsh and Georgia Anne Muldrow on the emotional tribute "Airworks (Forever)".

Leonard Charles "Basement Donuts" [HNR60] is available for digital download as well as on limited-edition 12" colored vinyl in your choice of either Glazed or Purple Frosting.

TURN IT UP!
