About the show

PART 1/2
Recorded back in June of 2009, here’s a lengthy and revealing conversation with one of what I consider to be one of our great musical minds. JJ skulks in the background like the Maxx that Willie Isz’s name is inspired by but recent touring as DOOM’s DJ and supporting act is raising his profile over in the States – in accompaniment to this, the Willie Isz album received some fantastic reviews and defo seems like a sleeper fave LP.

What I really love about JJ is his versatility and unabashed experimentalism. I remember a great Hip Hop Connection article upon the release of the Shape of Broad Minds album citing that Jneiro’s ahead of his time, that hip hop isn’t ready for his sound yet. As we’ve heard that very sound has morphed and twisted into many forms (see Flying Lotus et al), and indeed moved well away from traditional hip hop in many senses, but JJ has been and continues to be a major innovator.
