House Shoes - King James Version, Ch.1 Cassette
|The acclaimed mixtape from Detroit's DJ House Shoes. Mixed and Arranged By Shoes, Recorded By Rhettmatic (Beat Junkies).|
''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!'' -- DJ Rhettmatic.
''This is a lovingly and expertly constructed journey through the building blocks of Dilla's beats -- the dusty OG vinyl grooves that he sampled. From the basis of a Frank-N-Dank cult favorite, through that of a Fantastic SV moment, to Donuts' irresistible ingredients, Shoes' thorough work shines the light on his friend's ear for a sneaky loop, his affection for perfectly imperfect chops and his knack for extracting the soul from a forgotten musical fragment and making it something altogether new, something his own. Long Live King James'' -- Chairman Mao XXL Magazine
