Amoeba Review

04/19/2017

Since his untimely passing in 2006, many attempts have been made at satisfying the unfinished legacy of J Dilla’s career, with various labels compiling many of his unreleased beats and sonic sketches into collections attempting to paint a more complete picture of his singular genius. Yet this particular release transcends simple archivist motivations. Curated by Dilla’s mother “Ma Dukes,” Motor City is framed as a handwritten letter to her son in the form of rare recordings sequenced together, with a flow that emulates the effortless continuity of his most legendary release, Donuts. “Motor City J-Rocc Blend #1,” a bonus mix accompanying the record, encapsulates the album's meld of influence with ingenuity; taking the opening bars of Notorious BIG's “Juicy” and flipping it over some of Dilla's signatures sounds, including a 00s appropriate neo-soul beat and omnipresent air raid sirens. Not just for the completists out there.
