about

I had a lot of fun doing this remix. This beat was actually an interlude on my Soundchanneler album. DJ Minus Nine used to say to me, "You should do something with the interludes on that album bro." I took his advice and did that with this one.

The tricky part about doing a remix for Stakes Is High is the 3 bar sequence it plays in compared to the traditional 4/4 time signature 4 bar sequence format. I really hope our friends that listen to this project take the time to check out the re:edits on the videos for this project that Todd Kelley has done. To me, the remixes accompanied by the videos is really what brought this project to life.

The visual element is such an important part of music today. It's almost like people won't even listen to what you have unless a visual is associated with it (Just my opinion). J Dilla absolutely killed the original joint. The format in which he did the original in proves his genius. I believe "Stakes Is High" is one of the most important songs in the last 20 years of Hip Hop. The subject matter was so on point when it dropped in 1996 and it still applies to the world of music today. J. Dilla RIP
