November 14th, 2015 marks the 20th Anniversary of LABCABINCALIFORNIA. In celebration and tribute, we will be touring Europe and Japan. U.S. dates are also being added. Stay tuned for the entire tour schedule!
Made exclusively for their upcoming return to Europe this summer, the tape features new songs from the original Pharcyde collective. New songs and skits on Side A and a beat tape on Side B. Produced by L.A. Jay and J Sw!ft (original Pharcyde producers) and one joint by K-Natural.
Digital download cards come with every cassette so, if you don’t own a cassette deck, you can download the album and keep the tape as a souvenir. Sold only at the shows on the tour, but that means you can get your tapes signed!
“Welcome to Dillaville” pays homage to the incredible works of the late great J Dilla. The tour features two groups significant to Dilla’s legacy; Slum Village and Bizarre Ride Live (Fatlip and SlimKid3 formerly of The Pharcyde backed by Bizarre Ride producers J-Sw!ft and LA Jay). The tour also includes pieces from the J Dilla AKA Jay Dee Exhibit, including never seen before letters, track sheets, personal affirmations, and photos. This will be an experience that Dilla fans will not want to miss!
While visiting The Angie Martinez Show on New York’s Hot 97, Justin Timberlake was asked about his favorite hip hop records to listen to while he was growing up in Tennessee. Along with A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders and The Low End Theory, JT singled out Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde as “phenomenal.” Check the clip below.
