The well-regarded DJ Mitsu has just
released a new album dedicated entirely
to J Dilla. Part of his reasoning is explained
below. You might want to cop this joint.
“I have created tracks for people in the past, but
I have never dedicated a whole album for anyone.
Even after his passing I greatly respect him as a
mentor, and I have longed to dedicate an album
for him in order to reflect on my present self. The
intension of this album is not to imitate, but to
present myself while reflecting on how his influence
has helped me to find my own style. This is a dedication
of my style to him, which would not have been possible
without his influence. I will continue to respect him.”
