Hear Flying Lotus' Live J Dilla Tribute Mix From The Day The Legend Passed
Today, dear donut lovers, marks a whopping decade since we lost the great J Dilla. We’ll let you sit with that for a bit. But while you do, we have something that could also offer the perfect score to your reminiscences, as the day also offers us the opportunity to commemorate his work, legacy and influence by banging the hell out of his beats. And so, we present to you not one of his own creations, but a sonic memorial service, if you will, held and conducted by one of his greatest disciples, Flying Lotus, arguably the bearer of the torch; the missing link between Jay Dee and, say, Knxwledge, Kaytranada or any one of this generation’s seemingly countless beat constructors.
On the day of Dilla’s death, FlyLo spun an intimate live tribute mix to Jay Dee for DubLab, blending selections from Dilla’s catalogue with sample material, deep cuts and all the reverence in the world. But of all, the mix has finally been brought back to the internets for your listening pleasure. Hit the link below to hear Flying Lotus’ Dilla’s Still Here mix and keep raising it up for Dilla Dawg all year-long.
