Donuts Are Forever DJ set by DSTRUKT
An extensive live set by DSTRUKT from the annual J Dilla tribute, "Donuts Are Forever" that takes place every year at the Brooklyn Bowl. DSTRUKT really did his thing on this one from the song selection to the edits - the seague from Herbie Hancock's "Running to Me" into Slum Village's "Get Dis Money" is sound for sore ears - and it's evident that he put a lot of preparation into this set. "I've been working on Dilla edits before I discovered I was booked for this party. I knew that day would come sooner or later and I definitely wanted my set to be off-beat. Some edits you're about to hear were done 7 years ago and never seen the light of day until 02.14.16." This is a must listen to for Dilla fans. Check out the video or download the mp3 HERE.
Flamingosis - Great Hair
The New Jersey native has mastered the art of sampling to a level where he is praised both by Future Funk & Hip Hop heads. Great Hair is a true example of how Flamingosis flips samples with his own signature; switching from boom-bap, to disco, boogie, soul, funk and chill wave.
Bry.Zen - Love//Libations
An instrumental beat tape from Long Beach producer Bry.Zen. Love//Libations features 15 beautiful tracks that are absolutely drenched in soul. Bry.Zen's use of samples, loops and chops are excellent and you can really hear the Jay Dee influence all over.
