iTunes Review

Released only three days before J Dilla passed away in February 2006, Donuts is one of underground hip-hop's most legendary projects. Sketches of songs segue into one another, creating a soulful and emotional journey, with hypnotic moments like "Workinonit" and the dreamy "Waves" giving way to coded messages on mortality, such as the wistful "Bye." and the bittersweet "Last Donut of the Night". Even though this is an all-instrumental album packed with short, sample-based loops, we feels like Dilla's talking right at us.

Customer Reviews

伝説の逸品。

シンプルだけど刺激的でヒップなトラックを大量生産した天才ビートメイカー。惜しい人を亡くしたな。

アルバムの中で生きてます

クラブに行き始めた当時1995年頃、良く耳にしたRunnin 。衝撃的な格好良さだった。その後も進化を遂げてウマーの曲等良く聴いていた。最近リリースされたRunnin(Philippians Remix)一つ頭を抜く格好良さで思い出し辿り着く先はこのアルバム。特に好きな曲はTime: The Donut of the Heart。なんでこんなに心地良いくらい浮遊感たっぷりの曲で、ワンループなのに飽きもこなく、冷たく暖かく、かっこ良く耳に届く。亡くなったのが本当に惜しい。

When Pharrell Williams appeared on BET's 106 & Park in 2004, he excitedly declared that Dilla was his favorite producer and told an audibly stumped crowd that it had probably never heard of the man. At the time, Dilla had been active for well over a decade and had netted enough beats -- including...
