Episode #17 - DJ JFresh-One "Beats, Rhymes & Donuts" (a tribute mixtape to J Dilla)

Welcome to The Mix Lab Podcast! Where we put quality first. Quality as in REAL Hip-Hop of course!

Finally, here is Episode #17 in full effect! It is also a special treat for all you that enjoy the sounds of J Dilla. Why you may ask, because this episode is also a NEW mixtape that I, DJ JFresh-One, created recently. This mix is a tribute to the very talented Jay Dee aka J Dilla (R.I.P.). I titled this mixtape as “Beats, Rhymes & Donuts”. It’s over an hour long with a variety of selected tracks that were produced or performed by J Dilla. I also included remixes that were inspired from Dilla and threw in some of my own special blends.

I don’t really expect much outta this mix, because it’s just something I wanted to put together in dedication to Dilla’s work and influence. Plus, it’s a mix for all of us hip-hop fans to enjoy. It was tough to select tracks out of Dilla’s massive library, but I had to drop in a certain amount in a small timeframe.

Listen to it with pleasure in your iPod, on your box, or just cruise to it in your ride!
I will be loading up a special download soon for those that request a mixtape with songs individually tracked and in higher sound quality. For now, here it is as a podcast episode.
