The day Dilla passed, Steve Ellison aka Flying Lotus spun a special live mix for dublab including hip-hop, rare grooves (some of which were sampled by Dilla and Madlib), exotic international records, and a few of Dilla’s own tracks. A fitting tribute to a producer who was able to include, in the words of Flying Lotus, so many voices on one record.
Think I saw that as well. The one with an entire audience of white people? Are there no black people in Austin?
Every one of his songs just seem to be missing a small element that would make them great. Maybe a better producer on his next album will help. But he's a cool cat and I dig what he's doing.
Awesome. Have you listened to Miguel Atwood-Ferguson's J Dilla tributes?
