De La Soul have revealed new track ‘Dilla Plugged In’, featuring production from the late J Dilla.
The US hip-hop trio, who recently gave away their entire back catalogue, have shared the song – which features reworked lines from ‘3 Feet High And Rising’ track ‘Plug Tunin’ with production from the producer, who died in 2006.
The track will appear on De La Soul’s upcoming ‘Smell the D.A.I.S.Y.’ mixtape, a full collection of Dilla beats and De La Soul . De La Soul are expected to release new album ‘You’re Welcome’ later in 2014 but admit that their own high standards have delayed the album’s release. The group are also believed to be working on an EP titled ‘Preemium Soul On The Rocks’.
De La Soul were recently named as the third headliner for this year’s Camp Bestival. They join fellow headliners Basement Jaxx and James on the line-up. The festival runs from July 31 to August 3 at Lulworth Castle in Dorset and De La Soul will headline the Saturday night (August 2).
James will headline the opening night, while Basement Jaxx close the festival with the headline slot on August 3. Also on the bill are Johnny Marr, Sinead O’Connor, Laura Mvula, Steve Mason and Peter Hook And The Light.
