on the audio player to your right, a beat i made is playing. This beat is exactly as it is named, a Dedication to Donuts, the last project J Dilla released alive. He is easily my biggest influence, and on Donuts, he used a style/technique of chopping samples so precisely that I had never heard before. This in no way is my attempt at biting or calling the style my own, but only my take on what I consider the greatest producer ever, did on that project. From my perspective, there was a certain texture of sampling, a certain "not where u would normally chop" style of chops, and an ingenius subtle use of drums already in the sample chopped.
Forever a student, I am.
Turn it up, niggas!!
RIP JAY DEE.
