Nearly two decades has passed since the unfortunate demise of producer and sample-loving MPC aficionado J Dilla. In honor of his legacy, DJ/producer DSTRUKT has put together a new eight-minute routine he recorded at the Serato studios.
The donut emoji in the title pays homage to Donuts, Dilla’s second and final album released in 2006 via Stones Throw Records. Described by Pitchfork as “pure postmodern art—which was hip-hop’s aim in the first place,” the release has an iconic spot in the history of hip-hop.

To showcase its new Cursed control vinyl, Serato has enlisted DSTRUKT to put down a Halloween-themed routine for their From the Studio series. DSTRUKT, a former DMC and Red Bull 3Style regional finalist, made use of Danny Elfman’s classic “This Is Halloween” and UZ’s “Trap Shit V19” featuring Problem.
The 12-inch vinyl, which is limited edition, comes in two designs: “Screams from the grave!” and “Fangs under the full moon!” With Halloween just around the corner, DJs can grab both now on Serato’s online store.
