E Major and Sean Armstrong – Fantasy feat. Cynthia Hawkes

Now I’m not usually one to toot my own horn, but for real, if you haven’t downloaded the tribute to J Dilla that myself and Sean Armstrong put together called LOUDER!, you’re sleeping!  I keep listening to it and remain proud of what we did as an homage to my favorite producer of all time and my number one inspiration in music.  This track here is definitely one of my favorites from the project.  Cynthia Hawkes came through with the hook and simply made the song what it is.  She really did a great job of making it a track that can really grab you.  Check it out and let me know your thoughts!

Already being called “a must download” (Gowhere/Chicago Now), this 7 track EP/mixtape features Sean Armstrong (aka DJ Face of 9th Wonder’s True School DJ’s) and our own E Major trading verses over production by the late, great J Dilla.  The duo of Major and Armstrong wanted to release the tribute to the producer in February since it is frequently referred to as Dilla Month, being that it is the month Dilla was both born in and died in.  Here’s the description from the Bandcamp page:

Happy Birthday J Dilla

We have to honor the birthday of the late, great(est) James Yancey aka J Dilla.  Easily my biggest influence in creating.  I say creating because I’ve taken inspiration from him in music and visual art as well.  He was free to do whatever he felt worked creatively.  He had no barriers.  I hope everyone likes the image above that I created.  Think of Dilla today, play his music and share what he’s left us with the world.  That’s the best way we could honor him.
