Why do we like this?

This weeks Old School Wednesday never achieved the sales figures of some of it's contemporaries but is regarded by many as an all time classic.

"Fall In Love" is perhaps J Dilla's best known beat, and it's not hard to see why. Released on Fantastic Vol. 2, in 2000, an album which saw Slum Village acclaimed as successors to A Tribe Called Quest, "Fall In Love" coincided with Dilla's - or Jay Dee as he was known then - productions for Common, Busta Rhymes and Erykah Badu finding success.

This track, recorded by a group of high school friends from Detroit, is (despite the lack of high profile names) one of Dilla's most accessible beats. Add in some clever lyricism and you have yourself a classic - albeit an unheralded one.
