Watch DSTRUKT’s ‘This One Is For Dilla’ Mix

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.
