Pet Sounds: In The Key of Dee

“The easiest (laziest) way to describe UK producer Bullion’s Pet Sounds: in the Key of Dee would be to call it a more adventurous version of The Grey Album, but with J Dilla and the Beach Boys standing in for Jay-Z and the Beatles. Sounds like a fucking mess that should probably be rejected on principle alone. Instead, Bullion’s deft fusion of snippets from Pet Sounds with beats from Dilla’s expansive body of work amounts to something that is ultimately more enjoyable and more interesting than Danger Mouse’s seminal mash-up album. And if that isn’t enough for you, Bullion’s mixtape serves as a reminder (as if you need it) of just how amazing Dilla really was. His beats were/are timeless, as evidenced by how natural they sound here.”

Bullion has the following on his myspace as a response: “Write up about pet sounds in the key of dee on is niice, and fully appreciated – BUT – it got one thing wrong:’With beats taken from Jay Dee’s massive collection…’ ……………………………………NO DILLA DRUMS USED”
