Dj Rasta Root released "The Rest of Dilla" Vol. 1 last year and says that this mix was a long time in the making. 'I didn't want to do a Dilla mix just because he had passed away. I always seem to include a Slum [Village] or Dilla produced track in my dj sets, so I felt like it was time to put all my favorite tracks on one disc that I would listen to. It just so happens that I am able to share that with the world." Roots also speaks about what can be expected on the mix, "I feel like my strength is mixing and blending, so that what you will get....one seamless blend from start to finish.....no gimmicks, no talking....just DILLA"
