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.

Press Release: Krumbsnatcha to Retire from Music Biz

Press Release: Krumbsnatcha to Retire from Music Biz

Courtesy DJ Lord Ron.

I met Krumb back in 2001 or 2002 through my Europe brudda Milan who designed/created Krumbsnatcha's website and mine. Milan told Krumb about my beats & introduced us to each other. Krumb & I did some buildin' over the phone and emails. We knocked out two joints which I truly appreciate re working with Krumb & Guru.

I've worked with Guru, Krumb, Lil Dap (solo) & Group Home. How many DJ/Producers can say that? re Gang Starr Foundation when in fact they have the best hip hop producer ever in DJ Premier. It all started with Krumb for giving me a chance and I will always be appreciative, word up.

When I heard the news about Krumb who just retired from the music biz in 2012, I had to show my respects by spinnin' some of the dope music he has created since I've first heard Krumb in 1997. One of the illest to touch a MIC!

Krumb will now work with the youth and that's a powerful energy. Krumb, thanx for sharing your expressions through ART. All the best to you brudda! Big up to the W.O.L.V.E.S. & Big up to the Gang Starr Foundation & The North Alliance...To all who bang out this mix, give the brudda Krumb a SOUL CLAP!

The definition of rap's isotope. Brenton Brown, Formerly Boogs Milli, came from the suburbs after a life in Brooklyn, moved to Miami and is did his thing at the University of Florida. Don't count him out and don't box him in, because he’s been steadily spreading his music all over Florida and Atlanta’s college campuses.
