Boomkat Product Review:
The most essential of all the Dillanthology series, number 3 collects fourteen of the finest solo productions from the late beat maker. There's no doubt that this is the comp we've all been waiting for, delivering the full-cream riddims like 'Raw Sh*t' from his Jaylib project with Madlib, the still spine-chilling 'Nothin Like This' from 'Ruff Draft', or the hugely influential 'Won't Do' from The Shining. In fact you'd be hard pushed to find a duffer on this disc, as the tracklist reads like the crew at Rapster have spent a weekend in with a bag o' stinky and their favourite Dilla albums, cherry picking the best bits for 'Dilla's Productions'. It's tracks like 'Anti-American Graffiti' with its brilliantly recontextualised samples and sunny-side-up disposition, or the anthemic 'The Red' that cats will still be coming back to in 10 years time. Essential.
