    J DILLA'S DONUTS (33 1/3 Books)

    Very new to this forum but have been lurking for some time now... I would consider myself a dilla enthusiast (hence the username) but was wondering what you think about this release? Donuts has been released, re-released, re-re-released, etc..Don't get me wrong I am not trying to bash but I'm simply trying to get peoples views on it. 33 1/3 TO PUBLISH 'J DILLA'S DONUTS,' A 130-PAGE BOOK ABOUT THE ALBUM AND ARTIST. February 25, 2014 In the store | J DILLA'S DONUTS (33 1/3 Books) Written by Jordan Ferguson. Pre-order for April 24th release. If there was ever an album we've released which could inspire a 130-page book, it's J Dilla'sDonuts – one of our proudest releases, by an artist we were blessed to work with, and a work that took on special significance when J Dilla passed away just after it's release. 33 1/3 books (a series devoted to classic albums) is publishing the title J Dilla's Donuts on April 24th. Author Jordan Ferguson interviewed pretty much everyone associated with the album's creation - Stones Throw's PB Wolf, Jeff Jank, Eothen Alapatt - and many of Dilla's associates in his L.A. and Detroit years. The book is not merely a behind the scenes look at the creation of Donuts, but a look at Dilla's career as a whole, his influences, his music styles, and the art of the music itself. The jacket reads, "Drawing from philosophy, critical theory and musicology, as well as Dilla's own musical catalog, Jordan Ferguson shows that the contradictory, irascible and confrontational music found on Donuts is as much a result of an artist's declining health as it is an example of what scholars call 'late style,' placing the album in a musical tradition that stretches back centuries." In coming weeks we hope to publish an excerpt from the book. About the author: Jordan Ferguson is based in Toronto and writes on his own blogPoetry for Grave Diggers. About the publisher: 33 1/3 Books is a series of short volumes each devoted to a classic album. Published by Bloomsbury, the series was launched in 2003 and has published nearly 100 titles.

    Donuts Vinyl is just right

    I bought a vinyl for Donuts at Rough Trade NYC yesterday. Got home today really excited to hear it and when I put it in I realized that it was playing pretty slow, and the pitch was down because of that. This has happened with my record player before where the speed/pitch goes slow every once in a while but I had just fixed it recently so it shouldn't have happened so soon. I was too lazy so I didn't really bother to go through the whole process of changing the speed and just kept the record playing. I realized though when I flipped the record to side B, it was a little hard to get the hole in the middle of the vinyl to fit into the little peg. I realized that that's why it's playing so slow - the hole is so small that it's causing friction while rotating and is just going slower. I tried speeding up the RPM like crazy to maybe increase the size of the hole but that only worked a little bit. I was wondering if anyone else who had Donuts on vinyl had this problem? This isn't the first problem I've had with the manufacturing of Stones throw vinyls, because I have the Madvillainy instrumentals vinyl too and when I got it I saw they tried to fit the two records of the instrumentals in one sleeve , which doesn't really fit well at all, and it ended up damaging the sleeve a little bit from trying to fit both record in one sleeve.

    STBB Finalists Archive

    Stones Throw Beat Battles WordPress hey whats up you guys, i spent some time yesterday setting up a stbb wordpress. figured we needed something that catalogs all the beat battles from the first win to the most recent. the switch to soundcloud lets us share a nice embeded player with the page, but there are a ton of beats that arent there because of the beat battle 191 was the start of the soundcloud switch. i have used tkurata's list for finalists 1-134 and compiled the rest myself. if you are a past winner and want your beat on the page just pm/email me your track with who you are and what battle its from. mellowyouth (a) gmail let me know if theres anything else you want to see on there. so far ive added a search, and a countdown widget. the countdown being the most useful (imo) because now we have a running clock that ends at a certain time (Midnight NYC Time). i still need to add all the individual wins, but its complete enough to go "live". let me know what you think!

    Just curious...

    How did y'all hear about Dilla? And start liking him in that respect? Cause I see a lot of cats posting on that last thread that Donuts is the most overrated hip-hop album of all time I honestly think, that Donuts is an album unlike any other but not overrated opinions?
