Slum Village - Fan-Tas-Tic Volume 2
Slum Village
Fan-Tas-Tic Volume 2
2LP | 2015 | US | Original (Ne'Astra Music Group)
23,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
The contributions of the late Detroit producer James DeWitt Yancey –better known
to the world as J Dilla- to the world of hip-hop can't be overstated, and nowhere
is his legacy more apparent than his work as a member of Slum Village. A founding member of the trio, (Alongside rappers T3 and Baatin) Dilla provided the group's distinctly esoteric, free-wheeling sound, built around winding basslines, quirky drumbeats, subtle low-end frequencies, and classic jazz & soul samples. Against the backdrop of Dilla's rich production, T3 and Baatin's free-flowing style of rhyming would also earn wide critical praise, leading to comparisons as the successors to A Tribe Called Quest. (A label they themselves have rejected.)

After the success of Slum’s 1997 studio debut, Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1, the group went
to work on their follow up. Though the project was completed in ’98, label turmoil kept the project on ice until 2000. By the time Fantastic Volume II hit Dilla was well on his way to his status as a hip hop legend having produced cuts for Common,
Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest and many more. Later works from Slum Village may have had more of an impact sales-wise (in the immediate)but Fantastic Vol. 2 had fans and many critics saying that Slum Village, and Dilla
in particular, may “single-handedly save rap music.” Perhaps that statement is
hyperbole but many consider Fantastic Volume II to be Slum Village’s finest work
ever to this day.

Ne'Astra Media Group now presents the album reissued on vinyl, for the first time
in several years. Every wobbling bass note of J Dilla's production has been
preserved to maintain the legacy of this hip hop rap classic and maintain the
legend of one of hip-hop's greatest beatsmiths.

It's on Slum Village's 1997 studio debut, Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1, that all these
elements come together in the most proficient manner. An instant hit among
Detroit's underground hip-hop scene, the album seemed to combine all the best
elements of the reigning alternative and gangsta styles of hip-hop into one
cohesive style that was a hit among critics. Fan-Tas-Tic's influence extended far
beyond Detroit, as its sound heavily influenced the sounds of D'Angelo, Erykah
Badu, and The Roots just to name a few. (Roots drummer ?uestlove has even
declared that: "Hands down this album birthed the neo-soul movement.")
Ne'Astra Media Group now presents the album reissued on vinyl, for the first
time in several years. Every wobbling bass note of J Dilla's production has been
preserved and every freestyle line of T3 and Baatin has been re-created, to
maintain the legacy of a late-90s rap classic, and the legend of one of hip-hop's
greatest beatsmiths.

The mark that the late producer J Dilla left upon hip-hop during the 90s and early-to-mid 00s is undeniable, and his work with De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, The Pharcyde, and many more has long been cemented in the annals of hip-hop history. It was during his time as a member of seminal Detroit group Slum Village however that ranks as among his greatest. His work with rappers Baatin and T3 would be a strong influence upon
modern rappers like Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar, and earn widespread critical praise, and comparisons to other legendary groups like A Tribe Called Quest. In speaking retrospectively on their most famous album ""Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1"", The Roots' drummer Questlove has said of the release that it "single-handedly birthed neo-soul."

J Dilla has been gone for over 10 years now, and Slum Village has moved on from their time with the legendary beatsmith, recruiting new members along the way. Despite this, new Dilla compositions are still being discovered, and his legacy continues to be shared and celebrated with a modern hip-hop audience. Ne'Astra Music Group now presents a new compilation of rare Dilla material: Vol. 0. Ten tracks featuring the classic Slum
Village lineup of Dilla on vocals and production, with Baatin & T3 also on the mic, collected by modern SV member Young RJ from unreleased material and demos recorded between 1994 and 1997. The knowledgable hip-hop head may recognize key tracks from the circulated EPHCY Sessions, while others have never seen the light of day. A piece of hip-hop history that would have otherwise wallowed in obscurity, until now.

Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Though Slum Village have gone through many lineup changes since their inception in 1996, the group's music has stayed powerful. Last year's studio release Evolution featured founding member T3 and newcomer Illa J (Brother of the late J Dilla, and founding member of Slum Village) atop a bevy of fresh beats from producer Young RJ, and remaining strong as ever. Evolution has set the stage for their next upcoming release, this summer's YES, following a 12-city tour in celebration of the life of their revered producer.
To tide over the hunger of J Dilla-fanatics, Ne'Astra Music Group now presents the Vintage EP, a 10-track record featuring upcoming tracks from YES. Though Vintage is technically an EP, it’s not to be under-estimated. Slum Village come full force on Vintage, backed by some premium grade beats (Including a few tracks built around long-lost Dilla beats) with instrumentals as a B-Side. Guest appearances from fellow Detroit MCs Black Milk & Frank Nitt, and up-and-coming rapper Kameron Corvet further bolster the Vintage EP's potency. A preview of great things to come from Slum Village, and yet another testament to Dilla's far-reaching legend.

“If you are a Dilla fan today is your day.” - Okayplayer
An underground classic in every sense of the term, Slum Village's 1998 production Fantastic, Vol. 2
was a breath of fresh air for hip-hop heads when it finally hit shelves in 2000, earning heavy acclaim
and artistic clout for the trio of T3, Baatin, and the late production legend J Dilla. Fantastic, Vol. 2
featured vibes and lyrics harkening back to the classic sounds of De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest,
smooth and infectious production that would go on to set a blueprint for the 00's arrival of neo soul,
and top-shelf guest appearances from Q-Tip, D'Angelo, Busta Rhymes, and many more.
Now, upon the 20th anniversary of the album’s completion, Ne'Astra Media Group is proud to bring a
whole new collection of long lost tracks from the Fantastic, Vol. 2 sessions to you. Produced between
1996 and 1999, The Lost Scrolls Vol. 2 (Slum Village Edition) features 11 unreleased demos and
remixes featuring the classic Slum Village lineup. Tracks that have never previously been heard, and
might not have ever seen the light of day otherwise. Featuring a never-before-heard freestyle from
J Dilla, a newly discovered remix of the single “Hold Tight” featuring Q-Tip, a long-lost Kurupt-guesting
track “Talk About Hoes”, a posthumously discovered Baatin solo cut, and numerous other unearthed
gems of underground hip-hop.
