about

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

Down in scenic Auckland, New Zealand, tucked in a small basement studio, musician Leonard Charles & his 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 Cassette tape (only 100 made!). Each 38-minute collectible tape contains a glossy insert with artwork, album credits & instrumentation listing, plus each cassette casing comes in random colors of solid green, black, yellow, red, white or blue.

Look for more surprises as we keep J Dilla's brilliant star shining... and TURN IT UP!
