I told you we would had more Stones Throw stuff for you! I hoped to get this posted sooner but real life got in the way again so without further ado here is a digital version of J. Dilla’s Donut Shop.

Serato and Stones Throw have teamed with the J Dilla Estate for the official J Dilla Serato release, Donut Shop. This is 2 discs with six J Dilla tracks, 2 sides with Serato Control Tone (for use with Serato Scratch Live DJ software), and 2 donut slipmats in a package designed by Studio No.1. This will be released May 10th (the day after Mother’s day–what’s up Ma Dukes?).

The J Dilla tracks consist of three previously unreleased instrumentals selected by J.Rocc from the Dilla archives – “Safety Dance”, “Sycamore”, “Bars & Twists” – and three unreleased instrumental versions of Dilla’s production for Mos Def, Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes, each remastered by Elysian Masters who mixed and mastered J Dilla’s Donuts, The Shining and Ruff Draft albums.

Check out the download link and link to an interview with the head of Stones Throw Peanut Butter Wolf (courtesy of Hypebeast) below the break.

Mayer Hawthorne – I Need You by stonesthrow

I have a lot of Stones Throw stuff to toss your way and I am going to start it off with my man Mayer. He continues with his soulful crooning and reverts back to his falsetto on this newest tune “I Need You”. There is no download for the song but you are more than welcome to pre-order the vinyl from the link below. Shout out to Stones Throw too, keep checking back for more from the label whose business model I respect the most after being on this side of things for over 5 years now.
