Donuts for lunch:


It’s Dilla’s birthday so I thought it would be only right to mark the occasion on here with a selection of a few Jay Dee related bits, so grab a donut and your favourite beverage and have a listen.
First off, via Hypedog is a live Dilla tribute set from Mos Def and Robert Glasper with a six piece band from 2008 recorded at Ann Arbor.

Next up is a couple of nice mixes that did the rounds a while ago from Bowls at Music City Living. These are two mixes focusing on records Dilla’s used from the rock section.
