CDRadio episode 4.5! Recorded 2011.02.10. A few people subscribed on iTunes got episode 4 sometime last month, then I took it down a few hours later. It was a really good selection, but even though I’m only a few episodes in, I’d like to think the podcast is starting to take on a certain “sound” and that episode didn’t exactly match. Anywaaaaay!… this is episode 4.5. I should probably edit the whole “biweekly” podcast thing on iTunes since I axed that idea.

Btw: I had a lot of fun with this clip.

While yesterday was the birthday of the late J Dilla, it was also the birthday of another world renowned beat conductor that left this world well before his time; Nujabes. Like Dilla, he too was born 1975.02.07. They both would have been 37-years-old.

Happy [Belated] Birthday Nujabes.

Even though I saw it when it first came out in like ’06 or ’07, the video for Dilla‘s Nothing Like This is still one of the most visually impressive animated music video I’ve ever seen. The work put into making this video is just as amazing.

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now, but kinda been loafin on it. Alexander Nut was on deck at last month’s Crooked Tongues Tenth Anniversary BBQ. Mr. Nut threw down nothing but pure classic hip-hop gems. From A Tribe, Dilla, The Wu, Big L, Nas and plenty of others including a bit of current day grime (Oh my God.. it’s D Double [E]!..). Consider this an essential mix for the true hip-hop heads. Also make sure to check out the UK Godfather selector of dancehall, David Rodigan‘s BBQ mix of classic reggae, dancehall, and exclusive dubplates on Spine Radio.

Nice new tune from grooveman Spot with a bit of Dilla sampling going on. Take Back will be featured on the upcoming 27-track Worldwide Family vol.1 compilation by DJ Lefto & Simbad out next month. [edit: delayed ’til 2011.01.03]

Also, here’s a snippet of ENBULL (grooveman Spot + U-ZIPPLAIN)’s Come (Natsuyume) from their new SEVENTH HEAVEN LP, which is expected to come out sometime by the end of the year.

Stones Throw decided to share their recent Serato collab featuring a few unreleased Dilla beats with the rest of the world for $free.99.
