The upcoming Yancey Boys album, the group piloted by John “Illa J” Yancey and Frank Nitt, are preparing their upcoming album “Sunset Blvd” dropping later this fall via Delicious Vinyl. Entirely produced by the late, great, J Dilla (James Yancey), the album features a cache of Dilla beats recently discovered. As Frank Nitt states “We’ve created an album that would make Dilla proud. But this isn’t a nostalgia trip: Dilla beats were so future-forward that they’re right on time in 2013 and we’ve assembled the best artists possible to represent that.”
Today, enjoy the song “Quicksand” featuring long time friend and collaborator, Common, with Dezi Paige singing on the song’s chorus. “Quicksand” is the A-Side of the first single to “Sunset Blvd” available today and the B-Side features the song “Fisherman” which features J. Rocc (Beat Junkies/Stones Throw) & Detroit Serious. If you missed the music video to “Fisherman” that was recently released, the video is also below.
Stay tuned for release date and more info regarding “Sunset Blvd” coming soon.
