Press Play: J Dilla, Kevin Saunderson, Erol Alkan, Slugabed, and More
Maybe it's because of the impending holidays, but the selections in this week's Press Play are a touch more esoteric than usual. But the best part of this ongoing feature of ours is sharing and discovering new music at the click of a button, so a few extra bits of obscure music should actually make this installment even more interesting. Plus, we've also got DJ mixes, free downloads, record streams, music videos, and more to dig into from the likes of J Dilla, Slugabed, HTRK, Kevin Saunderson, Mumdance, Lee Bannon, Erol Alkan, Vondelpark, and James T Cotton, among others. It all can be experienced in full after the jump.
Previously only available on vinyl, J Dilla's Dillatroit can now be streamed and purchased in digital formats.
