Young RJ & Abstract Orchestra Honor 20th Anniversary Of Slum Village’s Fantastic Vol. 2

Young RJ T3 & Rob Mitchell

Young RJ and Abstract Orchestra pay tribute to the 20th anniversary of Slum Village’s Fantastic Vol. 2 with a rendition of the album that was originally produced by J.Dilla. Fantastic Vol. 2020 V.1 & 2 is an ode to the work of original members T3, Baatin and J. Dilla. The 18-piece band plays mostly instrumentals of the songs including a swanky bass clarinet-heavy version of “Go Ladies.” Young RJ, who is a member and producer of Slum Village was introduced to Abstract Orchestra bandleader Rob Mitchell by Slum Village’s manager when they were on tour this year. They began recording the project not long after the initial introduction and the result is a rare moment of live hip-hop.
