J Dilla (February 7, 1974 – February 10, 2006) was a DJ with an incredible ear for samples. This is a mix by a DJ named Bowls who uses J Dilla’s rock samples to make a mix of his own. This mix really shows how diverse Dilla’s taste in music was. He was very patient. He listened for good samples in songs and wasn’t afraid to let it play long. Its a 37 min mix, I recommend listening to the whole thing. (my favorite parts are around 7:00 & 25:30.) Its a very unique chill mix.
Frantic Recovery is a punk rock/alternative band out of Salem, VA. This music video for “Bullets in a Bottle” is one of the most creative concepts for a song I’ve seen. I really enjoy how the video was filmed and I think it goes very well with the song.
