J-Dilla Changed My Life

London / Manchester / Brighton

3rd, 4th & 5th February 2012

With Ma Dukes, Phat Kat & loads more!


For the sixth year running London’s No.1 party promoters are celebrating the life and work of the incredible James “J-Dilla” Yancey but this year take the show on the road with three seperate events in London, Brighton and Manchester.

This year our dream teams of DJs (all spinning for free) are joined on stage at all three events by last year’s surprise guest, Dilla’s mother, Maureen ‘Ma Dukes’ Yancey. For the first time we have one of Dilla’s close friends & collaborators in the shape of Detroit’s own Phat Kat to come and host proceedings and maybe even perform a couple of his Dilla produced classics. Having rocked for The Doctor’s Orders three times before we all know what to expect of the dynamic Ronnie Cash.

As ever we have an incredible all-star line up in each city all spinning sets of exclusive J-Dilla related sets for free to raise as much money as possible for The J-Dilla Foundation and Lupus UK. This year we are joined by
Mr Scruff, Spin Doctor, Mr Thing, Sarah Love, Harry Love, Morgan Spacek, Kutmah & DJ LOK
to name just a few.

5 years after his untimely death from complications brought on by Lupus disease J-Dilla’s status and appeal continues to grow so we expect what is widely regarded as “THE” Hip-Hop event of the year to be even more popular than the previous 4 years in London and for the second year running in Brighton where it filled both venues to capacity and we expect nothing less of Manchester. Those lucky few in attendance will not only be treated to an incredible night of music but also presented with the chance to get their hands on t-shirts exclusively printed by Dephect clothing for the event with all proceeds from these and the door going to charity.

Standing alone as THE Hip-Hop event of the year it is hard to better it year on year but with refreshed line up of DJs and an extremely special guest lined up there is no doubt this is going to be another party to remember in a packed to capacity Scala and as ever those wise enough to attend will have the chance to get their hands on another
t-shirt designed exclusively for the event.

James "J-Dilla" Yancey Biog

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”.
