Several years back, maybe 2005/2005, I bought a copy of Dj Spydrr's album 'Araknophonograph' (from Naj ?) . After this I started following Dj Spydrr and heard about his forthcoming album, 'Backwordz Evolution' and shortly after he died in a motorcycle accident. I couldn't help but wonder if the album would ever be heard. I stumbled upon the album on SoundCloud, big up to whomever uploaded it. There are two albums & an EP are there for the taking.
Jeremy was born November 8, 1979 in Evanston, IL. After graduating from Columbia College in Chicago in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in sound recording engineering, he came to the University of Florida to study architectural acoustics in the College of Design, Construction and Planning.
As DJ Spydrr, he was one of Chicago’s leading scratch artists. He produced an album of his own scratch music called Araknophonograph. Jeremy built a recording studio everywhere he lived, including his Gainesville apartment, where he recorded emerging talents in addition to his own work.
Friends and loved ones established this fund in his memory after he passed away on February 6, 2007 at age 27.
RIP Jeremy J. Hill / Dj Spydrr.

Le Jad recently put out a massive digi break entitled 'Percussion'. Its available for download with a PayPal donation to him.

Below are some details and descriptions of Percussion from Le Jad's website.

• All patterns, except included in the "133" folder, are written at 100 bpm, so you can loop them perfectly.
• Many genre of music are represented. You can use these skip proofs for scratch/drumming/beat juggling training, for competition or for your own productions.
• Skip proofs are grouped by 5 in order to ease up the use of cue points in your DVS.
It took me 2 years to perfect this record : refine, dump, create, try, copy, paste, undo, redo, kill my neighbors, doing all this while fastened to my desktop through heavy chains... that to say hundreds hours have been spent on it, with all the concern for detail you already know about me...
The result of this long work is a 1.2 Go 16bit WAV quality panel.
Let me tell you that it would be impossible for me to give you back an O so well content on usual webshop. Having lots of materials and ideas to share, your obedient servant would so much appreciate a contribution for his work.
Big up King Tragic for hooking up this Digi break. Loops, beats and scratch sounds. Listen & download below.
This is an EP Ugly Lovely put out several years ago, he mailed some cds out to a few people. I've been digging this for years. He hit me up a few months back, looking for a copy. I didn't realize so few had it. Big up Ugly Lovely for making this album & for being cool enough to give it away. I also in my archives found this video of him performing one of the tracks live. Check the links below for what he is up to these days.
