Just a quick note the make sure everyone knows that Benji B's Deviation is taking over room one and the balcony bar at Fabric on Wednesday night for a night of hip-hop:
BENJI B PRESENTS DEVIATION...
Madlib (Stones Throw), J Rocc (Stones Throw), Benji B (Deviation/BBC 1 Xtra)
To get you in the mood check out 'Lifetime (Lifeline)' by Madlib from his recent Madlib the Beat Konducta Vol,5-6: A Tribute To.... album. It's got a nice laid back J Dilla type vibe, especially when the sample kicks in at the end...
Speaking of which J Rocc recently did another podcast inspired by BlackPlastic's favourite late hip-hop producer, Tribute to Jay Dee Act 4, which is now available over at Stones Throw. It blends together a ton of Jay Dee cuts together with some samples from both relatively well known songs that sound like the kind of thing he'd have sample as well as some of the tracks Jay Dee did himself use. Check it out.
