DJ SPINNA is a heavily touted presence in the international soulful house music scene. He is known for his vast accomplishments as a producer, is celebrated for his “Soul Slam” events and Stevie Wonder inspired WONDER-­‐Full Dj performances and subsequent collaborations.

The Pharcyde’s sophomore album “LabcabinCalifornia” was originally released on November 14th, 1995. The group
enlisted a young and then unknown James Yancey aka J DILLA to produce beats, like the cult classic “Runnin.” They also collaborated with director Spike Jonze (“Being John Malkovich” “Adaptation”) on the video for “Drop.” Labcabincalifornia has consistently and continues to reinforce their steadfast refusal to tread familiar artistic grounds.

The Pharcyde “LabCabinCalifornia” 20 Year Anniversary!

-2

 

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — The Pharcyde is set to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their second album Labcabincalifornia, originally released on November 14th, 1995. The Bicycle Music Company/Concord Music Group has digitally released the three-CD 40- song Labcabincalifornia (Deluxe Edition) featuring the re-mastered version of the original album, including remixes and the rare Jay Dee instrumentals. The Pharcyde’s merch company, MerchSwag, will feature exclusive 20th anniversary gear, available only at www.merchswag.com

The Pharcyde released Labcabincalifornia, their follow up to the landmark Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde (itself released on November 24th, 1992) with the album ultimately launching three singles, “Runnin’”, “She Said” and “Drop” (which would go on to massive MTV music video fame due to it’s first ever entirely backwards filmed video directed by Spike Jonze).

Over the next 20 years, the legacy of Labcabincalifornia would continue to rise in part due to the production work by the legendary Jay Dee, aka J Dilla (who would succumb to illness in 2006).

Labcabincalifornia” is an artistic breakthrough, and because of the deep shift in hip-hop production in the last two decades, the timelessness of the album is more apparent than ever.” – Treble Music’s Induction of Labcabincalifornia into their Hall Of Fame

“If Labcabincalifornia came out today, boasting production by J Dilla on seven out of 17 tracks would be a big deal…” – Complex Magazine

“Years ahead of its time for a scene still hung over from The Chronic, Labcabincalifornia was an under-appreciated album that would almost certainly have fared better amidst the alt-rap renaissance of 1999.” – Rap Reviews

J Dilla produced arguably one of his best tracks for The Pharcyde – “Runnin” which was released as the first single off Labcabincalifornia. – Stop The Breaks

In celebration of the album’s 20th anniversary, Labcabincalifornia (Deluxe Edition) has been released digitally and is officially available for the first time at all music streaming services. Disc One features the original record from start to finish. Disc Two collects all the instrumentals including the Jay Dee beats for “Runnin’” and “Drop” as well as his instrumental remix of “She Said”. The third disc compiles the remixes and ‘B-Cydes’ including the fan favorite “Emerald Butterfly”.

The Pharcyde is Bootie Brown and Imani who are actively touring in celebration of the 20th anniversary. Complete updates and news about a special project in the works to celebrate Labcabincalifornia can be found by visiting www.thepharcyde.com.
