Tune in and turn up

In 1989, a little known group from New York released an album that would change the course of hip-hop. De La Soul’s 3 Feet High and Rising sounded like nothing else: spoken word, skit and psychedelia; sampled exhaustively, sampled from life. After dropping a couple recent audio nuggets, we’re now privileged to announce the latest bit of material from De La Soul, Smell the DA.I.S.Y., with production from none other than J Dilla. In addition to the new music, the “Bundle” download also features a J Dilla documentary, an audio letter, and wallpapers. Smell the DA.I.S.Y. can be downloaded here or streamed below.
