Vomit Instrumental Alternate Take by PThought
Their 333EP-1 dropped April 5th, more sounds (including Del & Tame One coming correct over a serious amen break) available on the PThought SoundCloud.
Stones Throw graciously and generously hooks it up with a digital download of the recently released 6-track banger J Dilla Donut Shop.
I don't really need to say much else. Go download and turn it up!

A hero (in my book) has hacked into Solar's e-mail and Twitter accounts and is pushing this scumbag forward to bring a little justice to the situation. Following the tragic departure of one of the iconic vocal pillars of hip hop, this new string of leaked communications confirms the sketchiness everyone suspected from day one. I'm overjoyed to see Solar taking the fall.
Keep fallin' Solar, keep fallin'.

Clipz comes back under a new pseudo, Redlight, dropping some serious old school rave business. I've only heard a handful of joints, but Stupid is his latest coming on Digital Soundboy. The original features vocals by Roses Gabor, but the instrumental is where it's at. Bass is proper, killer track. Heavy.
You see now? Here's just another reason why Dilla will forever remain one of my favorite producers. This familiar little bit comes hand-picked by J. Rocc from the Dilla archives, a flip of the Men Without Hats original The Safety Dance. Scoop this with 5 additional unreleased tracks bundled together with the Stones Throw, Serato & J Dilla Estate collab release of J Dilla Donut Shop.
Pre-order the 2LP (with Serato Control Tone on 2 sides), Donuts slipmats & gatefold package now for a May 10th release.

This is the sound for this morning. I'm not sure if it's the fact that this has to be, hands-down, one of my favorite sampled Les McCann joints or that Scratch just worked it so well -- or both. I could let this loop ride for hours. The vocalist is a beautiful setup for the soulful murder Rae delivers with his verse. I'm particular about female vocals, but whoever this is has a serious set of pipes and absolutely nailed the vibe.
