For nine years on the trot London’s No.1 Hip-Hop party promoters and thousands of dedicated fans have celebrated the life and work of the incredible James “J-Dilla” Yancey and now for the third year running do so in three cities.
Standing alone as THE Hip-Hop event of the year it is hard to better it year on year but with a refreshed line up of DJs spinning Dilla classics you know and rarities you don’t, Spin Doctor spinning a special AV set, more special guests to be confirmed & of course the t-shirt designed exclusively for the event this is sure to be another big year.
In his brief 32 years James Yancey otherwise known as Jay-Dee or J-Dilla, created a new sound for Hip-Hop that inspired beat smiths, MCs and music lovers around the globe. With an incredible line of production credits for De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, The Pharcyde, Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes, Common, D’Angelo, his own crew Slum Village and so many more it is little wonder that he has been described as a visionary, a genius & the quintessential producers’ producer by many of the most respected names in the game. The fact that both Pharell Williams & Kanye West name him as their major inspiration speaks volumes to the influence of his distinctive “Dilla sound”.
His own albums “Rough Draft” & “Donuts” on Stones Throw, “Welcome 2 Detroit” & “The Shining” on BBE Records alongside “Jay Loves Japan” and his work on his brother Illa-J’s album “Yancey Boys” stand out as masterpieces of modern music production and capture the imagination of producers, DJs & all music lovers across the world. A selection of his work has even been released in full orchestral form on the brilliant “Suite For Ma Dukes”.
