The Detroit-born producer may have had only had a brief bump in the spotlight before he died on this day in at 32 years of age from an incurable blood disease and lupus, yet he had an influence way beyond his years. He was a craftsman, a producer who had a way with sounds which was both distinctive and idiosyncratic. Many other producers of his vintage worked electronic noises, eerie samples and warm, evocative instrumental snatches into the boom-bap, but you could recognise a Dilla piece of work a mile away. Your head would nod, your feet would shuffle, your mind would spin. They came around to his house because he could give their sounds another dimension, another factor.

J Dilla - The Official Jay Dee Instrumental Series Vol.2: Vintage download album
Record stores are dying in my neighbourhood, the East Village of New York. The only ones that are hanging in there, even prospering, belong to a particular type: boutiques that offer a tidied-up version of the crate-digging experience, without the dust and the graft, the knees-bent flicking through musty cardboard boxes in roach-infested basements. Smart-looking and well-organised, these stores have racks made of unvarnished wood, while their wares — funk and soul, bebop and fusion, soundtracks and library music — tend to be selective and pricey. As well as selling source vinyl for the breaks and samples prized by DJs and producers, these stores also stock vintage rap inches and current underground hip-hop always on vinyl, of course. By the counter, they'll have copies of Wax Poetics on sale.
