Celebrate Dilla Weekend From Wherever, With A One-Hour Instrumental Mix (Audio)

February 7 is J Dilla’s birthday. The Slum Village co-founder and iconic producer would have been 41 years old today, and Heads are still celebrating his life, his art, and his impact. With Dilla Weekend going down in Miami, and other events in Los Angeles and elsewhere, you can join in the festivities from anywhere.

DJ Manuvers, DJ Sharpsound & Louie Arson made a mix, Bangin’ Like A Dilla Instrumental. This undertaking arranges an hour’s worth of Jay Dee’s “donuts” and lets the rhythms, the samples, and the arrangements honor the Detroit, Michigan native.
