Alright It's still Dilla month..Nothing has changed. All month it's Dilla related. We got one more mix to go after this one.
The homie Jeff Jank sent me this picture and I had to do a mix to go with it...It's perfect.
This is a mix of nothing but Dil's Record collection..
...the original source for the beats.
Half of this mix is on "The Ma Dukes Collection"...this is that mix with a 2nd half added.
(There is a 3rd and 4th half)
Also....If you know these records...don't call it out..I don't like doing these type of mixes because I've seen artist get popped because of these type of mixes..not everyone can afford to clear some of these loops.....thank you.
Go out and pick up House Shoes "King James Verse 1-5" for more....BUY IT!!!!! The dough goes to Ma Dukes....

It's Dilla month around these parts.
As I get ready for Nightlife tomorrow night (2/14/09)...I like to re-visit sets of the
Here's one from the archives...
This party was hosted by Frank N Dank.
Took Place in Toronto, Canada.
I D.J.'ed for most of the night.
Now here's a quote about the evening from ptahh...
Apr 12 2007, 01:22 PM
"I practically fell asleep. Boring as fuck! same old song's - RUNNING. ok it's a classic, must it be played everytime i go out? A lot of people want to go to a laptop dilla beat tape party.. They are tired of the RUNNING syndrome as well.
I left somewhere between 2 and 2:30 am. I did not hear 1 ruff draft song and this was a party to promote the album???
I give up. For now on Dillathons at my apartment.
Poor weather does not mean anything. If you serve it up hot people will bang. plain and simple.
Spinna, houseshoes, and Q-tip i think have done the best tribute sets so far. Waajeed has had his moments. I'm sure he can step up if he really wants to - being that he goes waaaay back in detroit w/slum, but his last set was seriously lacking."
I don't think he was at the same show.
This is the last hour of the night.

(pictured set list from a show in Edinburgh)
This is the first show we ever did. It was a party for the release of the Madvillain LP. We didn't practice for the show...or any of them for that matter. I would ask them what they wanted to perform then they would go "I don't know....you make up the set list"...hahaha.
Well, thank you to Madlib & the Stones Throw Family (Wolf, Jank, & Egonavichi) for giving me such an experience. It was a blessing..Getting to spin for my favorite producers. I remember getting tapes from Jake One of Slum Village and beat tapes and just geeking out with the few homies who knew what time it was. Then I'm getting to d.j. and go on tour with this dude..Man, talk about a dream come true..
Anyhow...enough with the heartfelt moments..
Edit: The voices you hear are B+ & Melo-D (who recorded this set)
Enjoy the very first show as Jaylib..I start it when J Dilla comes out on stage then let it roll out till the end..Special Guest Apperance by Common

Since it is the month of Dilla for everyone....
(it's Dilla all year for myself)
I thought I would put up a mix from Soundlession. A club in L.A...the d.j.'s for the evening are Kutmah, Alfred Hawkins, J Logic and your host is Aloe Blacc.
He just passed away a few weeks earlier and it was still fresh in my mind at this party...I'm not really doing any crazy mixing...just playing the new shit (well "The Shining" wouldn't be out for a minute)...for some reason my set was only 20 mins or so.
Anyhow...here's a taste of what's in store at Nightlife coming up on the 14th.....
