Dilla time

£12.99

Dan Charnas chronicles the life of James DeWitt Yancey, from his gifted childhood in Detroit, to his rise as a Grammy-nominated hip-hop producer, to the rare blood disease that caused his premature death; and follows the people who kept him and his ideas alive. He also rewinds the histories of American rhythms: from the birth of soul in Dilla’s own ‘Motown’, to funk, techno, and disco. Here, music is a story of Black culture in America and of what happens when human and machine times are synthesized into something new. ‘Dilla Time’ is a different kind of book about music, a visual experience with graphics that build those concepts step by step for fans and novices alike, teaching us to ‘see’ and feel rhythm in a unique and enjoyable way.
