#BeatsOfAllDILLA: 28 Days of James “Jay Dee” Yancey

DAY 28: The J Dilla x Brasil Connection

The DILLA x BRASIL Connection

Today is the last day of our month long series #BeatsofAllDilla.  We are about to go full circle…As we transition out of J Dilla Month and into our next venture, Brazilian Carnaval, which begins today and ends with our 4th Annual Brazilian Carnaval in Pomona at Re:Fresh, we leave you with “Obrigado Dilla,” which translates from Brazilian Portuguese to “Thank You Dilla.”

“Obrigado Dilla” was produced and documented by our friends at Mochilla following the Brasilintime premiere show at SESC Pompeii in São Paulo, 2006.  It features Brazil’s championed DJs Nuts and Primo (RIP) on the cuts and punching buttons on the SP-303 while drummer Pupillo keeps the time on the beat.  Together the three did a tribute featuring Dilla’s Brazilian influenced production for the Pharcyde, “Runnin.”  Again shout out to B+ and Coleman of Mochilla who captured some of the most iconic photos of Dilla in existence, including several we used throughout the month.

Here’s a fun note, we had an opportunity to host B+, Eric Coleman and DJ Nuts on several occasions at an event in Downtown Upland, CA called The Lapa Lounge.  On one of those nights in 2007, the Mochilla crew blessed us with the first public viewing of “Obrigado Dilla” with our small and intimate crowd.

Here is the original sample, Stan Getz “Saudade Vem Correndo” which translates to the theme and title of the Pharcyde track. Coincidence?


Bonus Nuggets:

Jay Dee Samples Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell:

and here’s an unreleased track where he samples Sergio Mendes drums and another record covering the Bossa Nova standard “Agua de Beber.”

The Dilla x Brazil connection goes even deeper, when asked about the short, prolific “Rico Suave Bossa Nova” track on Welcome 2 Detroit, he said  “I fell in love with Brazilian music the day I listened to a Sergio Mendes album.  We used to have jam sessions in the studio after work was done, one day my mans Karriem Riggins came through.  I asked him for ‘bossa nova.’  He gave me exactly what I needed.”
 

We bet Dilla would’ve bugged out if he heard his bossa nova groove covered by the legendary Azymuth!

and that’s what we call going full circle on the J Dilla x Brasil connection.
