The DJ name “DONUTS” was inspired by love for the band Phish. And it’s a tribute to a musical hero, J Dilla, who produced and released a record called Donuts during his final days. Dilla produced the album using samples from 45s, and it’s said that donuts are his analogy for vinyl and cyclical life. With Dilla in mind, DONUTS plays with respect for the past, love for the present, and excitement for the future.
