J DILLA - GONE TOO SOON

BBC 1Extra's story of the late J Dilla narrated by Benji B. If you don't know about J Dilla's work this is a good introduction. The documentary, aside from giving a fantastic background to him and the artists he worked with, shows that you don't get Jdilla eque magic without gold old fashioned hard work. Hear that kids?

LISTEN TO IT HERE.

EVERY FREAKIN NIGHT...

Two of my favourite Bristol boys - Christian from Uno One and Daddison, have teamed up to produce this RnB spesh T shirt. A design which captures all your fave 90s joints (plus the essential Oh Na Na dropped in) - if you've ever been to a RnB night at the Pipe hosted by Diss Miss and Safesoul, you'll know why this tee is gonna be a hit in Bristol. I miss those danger Sundays!

Pick it up at Donuts or Shop Dutty. I'm promised there's a mix to go with soon, cannot wait.

Much to the horror of my friends I am 'DJing' tomorrow night (I use the term very loosely) at a Yelle gig as our stand in Motel girl is going to Paris for work.
