Dillatronic marks the tenth posthumous release from Dilla since Donuts dropped just days before his passing.

The steady stream of unreleased gems has been continued by his mother, Ma Dukes, who teamed up with Vintage Vibez Music Group for this latest collection. 

"I can smile in my heart, knowing my son's work is being shared with the people as we planned before he passed. I only share the best, and I only hope to continue introducing the world to the genius of J Dilla." - Ma Dukes

He may be gone, but Jay Dee's spirit is very much alive these days.
