Daily Dose of L

I took an early bike ride this morning. It was cleansing. In addition to some personal tribulations, I experienced failure as a beat maker in learning that I wasn’t selected to compete in the Chicago region of the Red Bull Big Tune Beat Battle. My wife thinks though that they were looking for a certain sound or people who have a huge following on myspace. Jason thought we submitted the wrong songs. I make no excuses. I have to get better. That bike ride was cleansing. Sometimes as a creative person, you need to see, hear or feel something different. The world looks different in the light of sunrise. I know that sounds corny but the spirit needs what the spirit needs.

We are going to be in the studio all weekend this coming weekend so I am going to take a break from making beats this week. Kind of like a personal hip hop revival. I spent the two hours before my bike ride studying J Dilla on the web.I was rediscovering him. I have to be honest and admit that I hadn’t heard of him until I started making beats. He died before I started making beats. Although I hadn’t heard of him, I’d heard him. I am going to keep music playing constantly to get re-inspired but I am going to keep some D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Pharcyde, ATCQ, Digable Planets and the like in heavy rotation. I am going to listen, enjoy and most importantly study. I feel a transformation coming. It may take more than this week I have planned. It just occured to me…it makes sense, I can feel the change because my birthday is this week. Thursday the 23rd…the same day as Red Bull. My sound will change.

J Dilla
