Présentation de l'éditeur

From a Los Angeles hospital bed, equipped with little more than a laptop and a stack of records, James “J Dilla” Yancey crafted a set of tracks that would forever change the way beatmakers viewed their artform. The songs on Donuts are not hip hop music as “hip hop music” is typically defined; they careen and crash into each other, in one moment noisy and abrasive, gorgeous and heartbreaking the next. The samples and melodies tell the story of a man coming to terms with his declining health, a final love letter to the family and friends he was leaving behind. As a prolific producer with a voracious appetite for the history and mechanics of the music he loved, J Dilla knew the records that went into constructing Donuts inside and out. He could have taken them all and made a much different, more accessible album. If the widely accepted view is that his final work is a record about dying, the question becomes why did he make this record about dying?

Drawing from philosophy, critical theory and musicology, as well as Dilla’s own musical catalogue, Jordan Ferguson shows that the contradictory, irascible and confrontational music found on Donuts is as much a result of an artist’s declining health as it is an example of what scholars call “late style,” placing the album in a musical tradition that stretches back centuries.

Rien à redire. Pour les fans de Jay Dee aka J Dilla qui veulent approfondir le sujet, c'est un petit ouvrage très recommandable qui se lit rapidement.
Il y a de nombreuses informations détaillées sur son parcours, ses rencontres, ses goûts, ses amis, sa sensibilité. Cela founit des pistes pour creuser dans cette mine précieuse.
Collection 33 1/3 pour les passionnés de musique et de ceux qui la font.

with sharks and dolphins and a little deserted island, where I would be sitting under the shade of a coconut tree...just me, naked obviously, a portable turntable... powered by a little solar panel put together with the huge amount of trash that is brought by the tide on my shores...People you need to start to recycle seriously...and my J Dilla's 7" boxset and this book...That's the life my brother Robinson Crusoë !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Read 24 juin 2014
Par Cpt. Kootaro - Publié sur
I was looking forward to reading this book the moment I heard about it. I had already gleaned what I could from the internet about the album, and I hoped the book would provide some good insight not found elsewhere.

As soon as I started reading the book, I believe it took only 2 or 3 days to finish. The author goes after people who knew Jay closely, so you get to read about things that happened in Jay's life that I doubt you will find elsewhere. The author does take a risky trek out on a limb to compare stages of death with the structure of the album. It surprised me how much sense he was able to make, and didn't feel dull like some other tangents I've found in 33 1/3 books.

The main thing I want to say is that this book actually enhanced my enjoyment of the Donuts album, which I already liked enough to buy a book about it. Hearing about J Dilla's no-rules policy to making music and style change-ups is freaking inspiring. Also I loved reading about the amount of thought Dilla put into the samples that he knew would make up his final work, it really touched my heart.

If you are a longtime fan or someone wondering what all the hype surrounding J Dilla is about, this book is a great resource - and personal pick for the best 33 1/3 book I've read so far.

I couldn't put this book down! I read it all in one day! This really gives insight into not only the last days of J Dilla but also why he was so special to begin with. How he defied conventions and became revered by those in the know. This is the most thoroughly researched 33 1/3 books I've read thus far and there is a wealth of insight gathered from those who knew Dilla best. I found it really interesting the stories of how Dilla and Madlib were intrinsically connected and how Dilla and ATCQ linked up. I really can't recommend this book enough!

This Book Is Informative Of Dilla's Producing Process and Chronicles How He Got His Demo To Tip.

It Is Somewhat Depressing As Well As The Author Contemplates Dilla's Mindstate In His Final Days.

Good Reading Over All. Very Well Written.

Great bio! Good background on Dilla and gave a good discussion on what his last album could have meant to the listeners

I've been a 33 1/3 fan from the very first Velvet underground and Nico book i snagged from the library, and i've been collecting them ever since, simply b/c I love music and writings about the "classics". I was thrilled when i found out that Donuts will be getting the treatment that many great albums have gotten before. Donuts is one of my desert islands records, an album that continues to captivate and mystify me with its quirks and deeply melancholic and bluesy approach and will be with me ti'll my dying days.
Donuts has continued to gain popularity and has continued to amass a cult following as people slowly recognize the genius behind this record, and the genius of this record.

To my pleasant surprise, this book offered a lot of previously unknown insight and interpretation on an artist whose luminous career and life where cut horribly short. As a MAJOR Dilla fun, I would highly recommend this book for its off-kilter and unexpected insights into the life and music of a low-key legend, that certainly left us too soon, and this being his last album, will forever leave us wondering what could have been next.
