Description

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 4th anniversary of his untimely death and what would have been his 36th birthday ‘The Main Ingredients’ family celebrates the music of J Dilla with some of Sydneys finest DJ’s, headlined by DJ Houseshoes - Detroit's hip hop ambassador to the world, 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 performers will be performing for free with proceeds of the night going directly to Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey, the mother of J Dilla***
