Good Lord. This is a great example of why Freddie King was so good. Clapton has the dexterity, the technique...but the soul isn't there. Freddie's tone is unreal and Clapton can't match it. Stark difference between the teacher and the student. And for the Clapton nuts who will complain...he's said more than once that he couldn't even keep up with Freddie.

Lefty, saw Leon Bridges on Austin City Limits and enjoyed it. He didn't wow me but I love seeing nouveau soul.

Ten years ago today, producer James Yancey aka J Dilla passed away unexpectedly. For hip-hop producers the world came to a standstill. No one saw it coming. That week, Dilla had celebrated his 32nd birthday and released his magnum opus, Donuts, to universal acclaim. Just as his life inspired so much great hip-hop, rap and neo-soul music, Dilla’s death inspired artists everywhere to honor his impact with an outpouring of dedications, imitations, and everything in between. For fans, the mourning period seemed to go on without pause, a processional wake that would last an era. Ten years later, the ripples are still being felt, from the worlds of hip-hop to jazz to electronic music.

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.

J Dilla! Legend.

 

Going for a drive in a bit, loading up the Forza Horizon 2 playlist.

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?

Yes sir. It's amazing, especially "Fall in Love."

Damn some good stuff in the dublab. I remember that when Dilla died it was just fucking chaos … so sudden. Dude was so legit.
