Outkast Affiliate Mr. DJ Makes A Funky Beat In Stankonia Using Dilla’s Donuts (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Outkast Heads know Mr. DJ. Not only is the Georgia veteran the mixmaster on stage when Andre 3000 and Big Boi do their rare shows, he’s been with the group for more than 20 years. Mr. DJ is also the third member of Earthtone III (fka Earthtone Ideas), the production group of the group, who would make hits such as “Elevators,” “B.O.B.,” and “Ms. Jackson.” On his own, DJ made both volumes of “Da Art Of Storytelling.” With that rich pedigree in tact, he plays “Rhythm Roulette” with Mass Appeal, and hooks a beat up in Stankonia Studios.

On his person Mr. DJ leaves Atlanta, Georgia’s Moops Music with Michael Jackson’s Off The Wall, J Dilla’s Donuts, and Stones Throw Records compilation The Buzz (by Madlib, MED, Blu, and Mayer Hawthorne, etc.). Stones Throw, Dilla fans, and Underground Hip-Hop Heads may take special interest as the accomplished juggernaut producer reworks some sacred sounds.

Hard drums drive the way, as Mr. DJ’s resulting beat knocks. More than just sampling, he triggers the gathered elements while sitting at the keyboard and throwing some of his own Funk on top.
