David Begun aka DBegun returns with another superb mashup project titled “Marvin Jay”. As the title tells, he’s blending the lush, soulful vocals from one of the greatest singers ever in Marvin Gaye with the production from the late J Dilla to paint a picture of what it would be like for the Prince of Soul to work with Detroit’s finest.
Putting together pieces of Dilla beats across a range of albums to create unique tracks to layer in some of the most famous hits from Gaye’s collection. The result is what maybe it would look like if these two musical geniuses had not been separated by time and circumstance.
After his two Nasimoto albums with blends of Nas and Quasimoto, the Portsmouth, New Hampshire based artist presents another classic! Stream the full Marvin Jay album above and grab the free download via Bandcamp.
