This Extensive Collection From The Group’s Dilla-helmed Era Is A Comprehensive Overview Of Fan-Tas-Tic V.1 and V.2. This is a comprehensive overview of the underground group’s Dilla-produced tracks across four compact discs. The CD includes the entirety of the namesake albums Fan-Tas-Tic Volumes 1 & 2, instrumental versions, and a bonus fourth collection of remixes and obscurities, featuring collaborations with Madlib & Pete Rock, and select cuts from Best Kept Secret, the group’s rare release under the name J-88. The Fan-Tas-Tic Box is a veritable crown jewel for any fan of J Dilla or Slum Village, as well as an outstanding entry-point into the legacy of an underground hip-hop production hero.
Sold out since the holidays, we’ll have restock of this Detroit classic back in stock at the beginning of the week! Every wobbling bass note of J Dilla’s production has been preserved and every freestyle line of T3 and Baatin has been re-created, to maintain the legacy of a late-90s rap classic, and the legend of one of hip-hop’s greatest beatsmiths.
We only have a handful of these collector items left before they are all ga-ga-gone – FOR GOOD! This is guaranteed to be sold out by the end of the week. This new and exhaustive collection – comprising four CDs and five 7-inch records from the group’s Dilla-helmed era – is the perfect way for longtime fans to celebrate Dilla’s work with his first musical family, as well as for newcomers to enter the expansive musical world he created in the 1990s. Includes a liner notes book with rare photos and images. The text is by journalist Martin Caballero, with extensive input from the group’s only surviving member, T3. The 7-inch labels in this collection are inspired by the original “Raise It Up” and “I Don’t Know” 12-inch releases, which were designed to look like test pressings. The set itself is housed in a deluxe flip-top 7″ box.
