Today we celebrate the Life of one James “J-Dilla” Yancy. His beats are a producers standard, an emcees spine, and a Hip-Hop heads life. This is our 5th year doing a Dilla Day and this one we do it our style, the Lightsleepers Hawaii style. HAWAI’I LOVES J-DILLA
Guess What? We love J-Dilla. Yes Hawaii loves one of the dopest producers to ever touch a MPC. His natural swing on all his drums and the samples he chops are second to none. We are embarking on our 5th Dilla Day; Donuts are Forever, KANO, Fall in Love, JDillaDayLaSoulDonuts, & now Hawai’i Loves J-Dilla. Stoked on this one its simple but still represents Hawai’i and Dilla’s classic album “Donuts”…
