Jay Dilla on house music?

As I'm sure you know, Jay Dilla, sadly passed away recently and made all of us realize what an important producer he was and what a legacy he has left. With that in mind, my good friend Ben was trawling through the Dilla beats collections and came across a track (I think collections 3, track 8) that is just and absolute thumper. Its a straight down 4/4 beat track with a nasty bassline and drums. If this could be lengthened and maybe tweaked for the dancefloor we would have an underground house classic in our midst.

I wonder if he laid down anything else like this? I'm pretty sure this wasn't intended to be a house track.
