For over a decade now The Doctor’s Orders have been throwing THE Hip-Hop event of the year to honour the life and work of the greatest producer of all time. Having thrown their biggest party to date last year with a surprise set from Slum Village this year they bring things back to basics for the hardcore Dilla fans that remember the early tribute parties at Cargo.

Still expect some special surprises.

In his brief 32 years James Yancey, otherwise known as Jay-Dee or J-Dilla, created a new sound for Hip-Hop that inspired beat smiths, MCs and music lovers around the globe. With a list of production credits for De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, The Pharcyde, Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes, Common, D’Angelo, his own crew Slum Village and so many more it is little wonder that he has been described as a visionary and a genius by many of the most respected names in the game. The fact that both Pharell Williams & Kanye West name him as their major inspiration speaks volumes to the influence of his distinctive “Dilla sound”.

His own albums “Rough Draft” & “Donuts” on Stones Throw, “Welcome 2 Detroit” & “The Shining” on BBE Records alongside “Jay Loves Japan” and his work on his brother Illa-J’s album “Yancey Boys” stand out as masterpieces of modern music production and capture the imagination of producers, DJs & all music lovers across the world. A selection of his work has even been released in full orchestral form on the brilliant “Suite For Ma Dukes” and his beats are still surfacing through new releases proving his incredible output in such a short time.
