Regardless of whether or not you think Dilla was the decade’s best beatmaker (my vote goes to Otis Jackson Jr.), it’s difficult to argue that he hasn’t been the most influential. After all, Myspace is stained by thousands of fisher kings sampling 128 KBS MP3’s of The Sylvers, thinking they got souulll. Paul White is not one of them.

Along with fellow Londonite and One Handed Music labelmate, Bullion (post coming eventually), White creates woozy, psychedelic post-Dilla instrumental hip-hop. All amorphous signifiers, sure, but with music this ethereal and gauzy, it’s difficult to go much further than that. It’s gorgeous, stoned, head phone music. I could listen to this stuff all day, but it would get too expensive.
