Fantastic remix tape sent my way by DJ Skarface. Skarface’s description on Soundcloud sums it up nicely – I took one of the greatest albums ever, Madvillainy, and mixed it over the beats of one of the greatest producers ever, J Dilla. This is the result. Really digging this project, all of the beats match up perfectly with the accapellas and the transitions are very smooth. Especially digging the combination of Eye & Wild, can’t say I’d imagine these working together before listening but Skarface has shown that it’s a dope combination.
Another thing to note after listening is how clear the accapellas sound. There have never been any official accapellas released by Stones Throw, so the ones made by DJ Skarface for this project are another impressive aspect of the remix. I know a lot of producers out there would kill for these, would be awesome if they were shared later on so that more great remixes could be made by others.
MadDILLAiny is definitely worth a listen if you’re a fan of Madlib/MF DOOM/J Dilla! Download the full remix project here and follow DJ Skarface on Twitter and Soundcloud for updates on future work. Check out the spoiler below for the tracklist & album art.
