J Dilla - Nothing Like This

Nothing Like This

A very interesting animated video from the Stone Throws album Chrome Children. A well produced track for a well produced video. I really enjoy all the soft pastel coloration and more round type shaping. Hope you enjoy.

J Dilla

J Dilla Documentary

Genius pure genius

J Dilla is simply an amazing person and artist. I first found out about Dilla long ago when he was with Slum Village. I kinda drifted off on to other tunes but always came back impressed what Dilla produced. His beats were just on a scale from one to ten, a 20. He passed away long ago from a rare blood disease and possibly Lupus. Finishing Donuts from his hospital bed and touring Europe from a wheel Chair. Also was 75% finished with his last album The Shining. His work ethic was just on point as his beat production. I just have soo much respect for him and inspired every time I think of him or see pictures of him working on tracks. The 3 part interview below captures Dilla better than I can put to words and what he did.
Respect always to J Dilla.

New film coming out from one of my favorite directors, Takashi Miike. He's just amazing and very much on the shock value and helped capture the Yakuza on the cinema. He is one of the masters of horror cinema with a large cult following. Looking forward to meeting him someday soon. I'm very excited to see what will come of this film. Featuring Hiroki Sugimura from Battle Royale and Izaki from Crow Zero. The trailer for the film is down below.
