The Genius of J Dilla Vol. 5
Friday 7th February
The Basement @ 7 Macquarie Pl, Sydney
Tickets via www.moshtix.com.au
Live band featuring MC’s & vocalists playing J Dilla classics for 90 minutes!!
J Dilla a.k.a Jay Dee, 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 creatively left it for dead. Well respected musicians such as Questlove, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest, Common & Janet Jackson have worked with, and been influenced by J Dilla’s talents and he 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.
For the 5th annual installment commemorating the anniversary of his untimely death and what would have been his 40th birthday this year, Grindin’, Keep It Movin’ and April77 Creative celebrate the music of J Dilla with some of Sydney’s greatest talents. The incredible line-up of musicians, MC’s, vocalists & DJ’s will be paying homage to the man who shaped a new sound for Hip Hop that inspired beat smiths, MCs and music lovers around the globe. British DJ & producer Eric Lau will also be spinning at Sydney’s iconic venue, The Basement!
