The tumblr of Jason Weinberger

Cool news: Several pieces of musical equipment central to J Dilla’s creative process are being donated to the Smithsonian by his mother Maureen Yancey. Museum popular historian Timothy Anne Burnside explains the rationale for bringing Dilla’s gear into the collection:

'J Dilla’s body of work is a testament to creativity and innovation, the very elements on which hip-hop was founded … Like Duke Ellington, he was uncannily versatile. Everyone who pays attention to hip-hop has heard J Dilla’s work whether they realize it or not.'

These are some of the same reasons I’ve worked to bring his music into the symphonic repertoire.

If you are interested in a) vinyl and/or b) some of the most essential music being made today, you should grab Madlib’s classic Beat Konducta series, recently rereleased as a six-LP set.
