Raise It Up for Ma Dukes!

Three years ago today we lost one of the greatest ever producers in J Dilla. He died too young after battling the disease Lupus for many years.
Sadly his mother, Maureen Yancey, is now suffering from the same disease. In order to help raise funds for her medical bills Stones Throw designer Parra has created this T Shirt with proceeds from the sales going to Ma Dukes.
Parra's T Shirt designs always look great and this is no exception, plus you get to help to person who brought her son James Yancey into the world and blessed us with so much great music
Get you T shirt here

Kenichiro Nishihara - Humming Jazz EP

Nice 7" from Japanese jazz musician Kenichiro Nishihara. Beautiful fusion of live jazz music with rhymes from various emcees.

Weak pound against the Yen is killing me though,£12.99 for a 7". I don't like pay more than a £ an inch for vinyl! Also shouldn't an EP have more than 2 tracks on it. Never mind great music none the less.
The tracks are off an album which may offer value for money
