Delicious Vinyl proudly releases Sunset Blvd, the new album fromξYancey Boys, the group piloted by John Š—“Illa JŠ—? Yancey and FrankξNitt. The dynamic new collection is built around previouslyξunheard tracks created by Illa JŠ—Ès brother: the late, great J Dillaξ(James Yancey). With Frank NittŠ—Ès standing as J Dilla MusicξCatalog Curator and the official approval of Yancey Media Group,ξall productions on Sunset Blvd originate fromξThe Lost Scrolls Š—” the stunning cache of beats Dilla left behind

ξ

With its rapturous single Š—“QuicksandŠ—? featuring Common, Sunset Blvd also teams Yancey Boys with De La SoulŠ—ÈsξPosdnuos (Š—“BeautifulŠ—?), The PharcydeŠ—Ès SlimKid3 (Š—“Rock My WorldŠ—?), and T3 of Slum Village (Š—“Jeep VolumeŠ—?),ξmaking it clear that the Dilla legacy is being represented by those who knew and collaborated with Dilla in hisξlifetime. Additional guests on Sunset Blvd include DJs Rhettmatic, C-Minus, and J Rocc (Beat Junkies) as well asξrap roughneck Guilty Simpson and R&B strongman Eric Roberson. Š—“WeŠ—Ève created an album that would make Dillaξproud,Š—? says Frank Nitt, who grew up with Dilla in Detroit. Š—“But this isnŠ—Èt a nostalgia trip: DillaŠ—Ès beats were soξfuture-forward that theyŠ—Ère right on time in 2013, and weŠ—Ève assembled the best artists possible to represent that.Š—?

The road to Sunset Blvd has been paved with hard work and sweet inspiration. In 2008, Illa J began making musicξunder the Yancey Boys banner, with the guidance of Delicious Vinyl Co-Founder Michael Ross and utilizing beatsξhis elder brother left behind. Ross explains: Š—“Putting together the first Yancey Boys album was a unique opportunityξto keep it all in the family by giving young Illa J a jump off with unreleased beats of his late great brother. In addition,ξthe record was a unique way to satiate Dilla's rabid fan base with a batch of undiscovered gems. On Sunset Blvd,ξIlla and Frank dive deep into to a new batch of stunning unreleased Dilla beats to take what we did on the first albumξto the next level.Š—?
