"The modern classic. The last of the great sample
records. J Dilla managed to put all of my favorite artists into one
single piece of vinyl. De La, Tribe, The Roots, The Beasties.....They
all used samples in unique and innovative ways. But never had anyone
made a classic jazz record by using purely sampled material. And his
samples were so deep and so diverse. Stuff that seemingly should never
work together. It is the classic work of a pure genius. Pure love. J
Dilla is of course represented by one of my Donuts. As he always is.
The idea for this series
was to celebrate my 4 favorite albums of all time by using
one of my staple, recurring characters to re-imagine each cover in a
12inch Vinyl format.
Each of the albums changed my life and for my money, they best
represent the 3 primary genres that I collect today - Jazz, Hip-Hop, and
Reggae." - Kevin Lyons
