Jay Dee / J Dilla born James D. Yancey, was one of the few artists whose records were bought on sight, played until digested and then discussed among fans and critics. He kept Hip Hop relevant long after many of its greatest heroes had left it for dead, at least creatively and is often described as “your favourite producers favourite producer”. There are many talented beat makers and producers, but there will only be one J Dilla.

To commemorate the anniversary of his untimely death Grindin’, Keep It Movin’ and April77 Creative celebrates the music of J Dilla with some of Sydneys finest DJ’s and musicians along with ‘special guests’ paying homage to the man who shaped a new sound for Hip Hop that inspired beat smiths, MCs and music lovers around the globe

All proceeds of the night will be going directly to the J Dilla Foundation
