For the third year in a row Manchester’s Hip-Hop community are coming together to celebrate the life and work of the one and only James ‘J-Dilla’ Yancey. Always sold out in advance this event has become the not to be missed date of the year, much like it’s London equivalent now in it’s 7th year.
This year we once again have the brilliant Detroit MC and friend of Dilla’s Phat Kat on hosting duties while some of the UK’s best DJs pay tribute to a producer that has influenced them all. With Spin Doctor mixing an all AV set, special guest Kidkanevil both alongside Manchester’s own Me Scruff, Hoya Hoya, In The Loop & Juicy residents there is a phenomenal amount of talent on show tonight all giving up their time for free to raise money for the J-Dilla Foundation and Lupus UK. With yet another exclusive T-shirt designed and printed just for these events available alongside Dilla produced CDs and more this event is sure to be another huge success!
