Happy post-Grammy celebration, Okayplayers! This week’s episode of Mixtape Monday features an impressive crew of selectors and their formidable tributes to Detroit-bred producer + celebrated sound man, J Dilla.
Cut Chemist, House Shoes, Kronika and Himalaya Collective each take different approaches to the mix with their respective homages, but the love for Dilla is first and foremost in all of them. DJ Tara and C. Devone double down on matters of the heart with two gorgeous Valentine’s Day mixes. The Funky Corners Show rounds things out with a memorial set honoring the almighty David Axelrod, who passed away last week on Feb. 5th.
Take a listen, Okayplayers, as you might just hear something you love.
