Donuts Are Forever 3

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on February 27th, 2009 by Hyphen

Damn, I slacked on posting this right after it happened, but better late than never right?  If you don’t know, Donuts Are Forever, is a great event honoring the legendary J Dilla that’s now in its third year in NYC.  DJ’s including Waajeed and Ge-ology spun some of Dilla’s classic joints and 2/3 of Tanya Morgan, Von Pea & Donwill, hosted.  Speaking of those fellas, I need to post up the interview we did a while back.  Cool ass dudes and some of my favorite artists doing it today.

But anyway, shout to Rare Form for throwing this event and Dee Phunk for sending over the recap video.  When is someone in Seattle going to launch something similar?  I might even come out of my live mixing retirement for that…since nobody ever rocks one of my favorite Dilla beats

DJ Topspin x Waajeed – Platinum Pied Pipers ReMixtape

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on January 30th, 2009 by Hyphen


My dude Top (aka Blendiana Jones!) just shot this over and it’s fresh as f**k.  For the first half, he took original PPP vocals and mixed them with unreleased beats from Waajeed.  The second part features some ill Dilla remixes.  If you know anything about the Detroit sound and the musical ability of the dudes involved here, you better download this ASAP.


(shout to FWMJ for the artwork)

Download the full tape here.  And here’s a bonus joint with Tiombe Lockhart that he tossed in for y’all as well.
