It’s Dilla’s birthday so I thought it would be only right to mark the occasion on here with a selection of a few Jay Dee related bits, so grab a donut and your favourite beverage and have a listen.
First off, via Hypedog is a live Dilla tribute set from Mos Def and Robert Glasper with a six piece band from 2008 recorded at Ann Arbor.
House Shoes has put out his mix of Dilla’s records from last year or maybe the year before, King James Version out for free to mark Dilla Month.
There’s also a load of Dilla nights on – if you’re in Brighton this week The Doctor’s Orders and Juicy are doing one at The Deaf Institute – click here for details. There’s also a J Dilla and Baatin tribute night in Birmingham on 10th February at the Hare and Hounds – details here.
