Approved: The Doctor’s Orders presents J Dilla Changed My Life

Club Tip CMU Approved

J Dilla Changed My Life

Seven years since his untimely death, this is the sixth annual outing for a night held in tribute to the life and works of one of hip hop’s leading lights, James ‘J Dilla’ Yancey. This year the DJs (all spinning for free) will be joined on stage by last year’s surprise guest, Dilla’s mother Maureen ‘Ma Dukes’ Yancey. One of Dilla’s close friends and collaborators in the shape of Detroit’s own Phat Kat will also come to host proceedings, and perhaps even perform a couple of his Dilla-produced classics, while the dynamic Ronnie Cash will also return to the night for the third time.

One of the major events in hip hop calendar, with a refreshed line up of DJs and an extremely special guest lined up, this is going to be another party to remember in The Scala. And it’s all in aid of charity too – all proceeds from the night are donated to the J Dilla Foundation and Lupus UK, the latter supporting people with the same blood disorder J suffered from.

Sunday 5 Feb, The Scala, 275 Pentonville Road, Kings Cross, London, N1 9NL, 7pm – midnight, £6 standard, £30 VIP, more info here.
