This intelligent book uses the records and insights of Dilla's contemporaries to examine his approach to production, his relationships within the genre, love of records and how Donuts can be seen as a piece of music attuned to its creator's failing health. An insightful and emotive read. -- James Griffin Bonafide Magazine Jordan Ferguson's book on Donuts provides a trove of information about what was clearly one of the albums of the last decade of any genre [...]Ferguson offers a cogent reading of the album. Others have speculated that Jay Dee buried "secret messages" within the tracks. I don't know how secret they are but it is clear that there were major preoccupations, life-death-relationships and, of course, music. What he produced was a brilliant, multi-layered, sonically exhilarating work and Ferguson has done the album justice with this slim volume. -- Robert Iannapollo ARSC Journal Excerpted Stones Throw That such a lively collection of beats and samples-as cerebral as they are physical-was created by a dying man ensures that Jordan Ferguson's book will be poignant, but his clear storytelling and direct prose allows producer James Yancey to emerge as a complicated, contradictory character. The first half is the most extensive biography we have of the man, from his childhood in Detroit to his death in Los Angeles, just three days after the release of Donuts. The second half grapples with the album as a meditation on mortality, which only shows what an immense talent the world lost. -- Stephen M. Deusner Pitchfork

A Great Read 24. Juni 2014
Von Cpt. Kootaro - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
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.

It's about the music, but not in this book 21. Juli 2014
Von Jeffrey Lopez-stuit - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
You can learn a bit of history of Detroit hip-hop, and a bit about J. Dilla, but that's about it. Most of this book is an exercise in intellectual self-gratification, using the Donuts album as fodder. Lots of pages that try to draw from philosophy, literature, psychology, and other fields in an attempt to explain Dilla's work . The author spends an entire chapter writing about himself, as he tries to justify writing a book like this.

If you're seeking to learn about J. Dilla's approach to sound and music, I don't recommend this book.

Amazing! 9. Mai 2014
Von Dustin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
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!

Dilla's Donuts Book 7. Juni 2014
Von junclassic - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.

Blues of our time. 21. Oktober 2014
Von Pablo Critton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.
