Yesterday marked the 10th anniversary of J Dilla’s passing at the age of 32, the very same week he released Donuts, perhaps his greatest work.
That very same day in 2006, Brainfeeder head honcho Flying Lotus did a special live mix for dublab, dedicated to Dilla. 10 years on, dublab have shared FlyLo’s hour-long mix in its entirety, and you can listen to it here.
The Dilla’s Still Here Mix features a bunch of Dilla’s own tracks alongside records that he sampled, as well as other rare grooves and crate-digging beats. Kicking off with Slum Village’s ‘Players’, it’s a fitting tribute to a producer whose music continues to be a beacon of inspiration.
