2DBZ, The Left Coast & Dash Radio Present Left Coast Radio: The Dilla

blame it on Meka February 20, 2017

Of all of the episodes so far, this may be my favorite.

The music of James Dewitt Yancey has been instrumental in my upbringing, and it was actually after I attended his annual Donuts Are Forever celebration/party in New York which compelled me to want to become take my then-hobby of deejaying seriously.

As a sort of full circle moment, I was given the opportunity to participate in Donuts Are Forever this year. Needless to say, this was a relatively major moment in my life so my set for the latest episode of Left Coast Radio reflected that.

In my own way, I tried to memorialize the music of J Dilla as best I could with my set. As is the norm, b-sides, samples and everything in between were included. I hope that you, the listener, enjoy the mix as much as I did creating it.

Listen to the full mix below (previous episodes can be heard here), and also check out episode 6 (and every episode) of Left Coast Radio on our SoundCloud page.

Left Coast Radio airs every Friday night at 10pm EST (7pm PST) on Dash Radio‘s XXL station.
