"Clyde Stubblefield was the guy who made me want to play drums. Just watching him is what made me go out and buy a pair of drumsticks. I never sampled a drum beat again. Instead of sampling, I used that as inspiration to get good enough to just sample myself."

— J-Zone (interview with The Find Magazine)

"I just want to have command of my instrument the same way that I had command of the MPC2000 or a pair of Technics 1200s."

—J-Zone (interview with Plus One Me)
