The long awaited and highly anticipated follow-up to DJ Premier's instrumental album "Beats That Collected Dust" has finally been available on wax since May 17th. As you might realize from the title this project consists of older productions that never saw release for various reasons, they might have been turned down by an artist previously or created for a radio show or as an intro. Either way, this will be an interesting listen and while I will most likely pick up the vinyl of this, it would be a nice addition to my CD collection if we eventually get a 2xCD ltd edition with both volumes of this on there. Below is what Preemo himself has to say about the project, as well as the tracklist. You can also check out this link to snippets of all songs on the LP - thanks to Gim and the one and only DJ Premier Blog for that one!
"So... I should have released this one a while ago, but I thought that these tracks would find a home somewhere with vocals of some kind attached to it.....Oh well, no big deal....I always will make more and more and more beats...I LOVE THIS GAME ! Volume 2 has a few old potential Gang Starr tracks that we never used back in 1993 for our "Hard To Earn" LP, but they were not better than the ones that made the cut....since they sound dated next to my style of production in the 2000 era, now YOU have it....And don't 4get the BONUS cut at the end of the LP which I will continue to add only to these releases.
Much Love to all of the supporters of Vol. 1 and especially all of the MC's that sent versions spittin' lyrics over them for demos, mixtape CD's, and freestyling on radio mixshows.....I actually forgot to add some ill beats that I had intended for Vol. 2, so that means Vol. 3 will be next.......Year Round Records will ALWAYS keep the Vinyl Alive and QUALITY will NEVER be compromised..... NOD YA HEADS 2 THIS!!!" - DJ Premier
