This show was 2nd in the global breaks chart, 8th in the global r'n'b chart, 21st in the global soul chart and 28th in the global hip hop chart.
Sunday 7th February 2021 and not only would it have been James 'J-Dilla' Yancey's 47th birthday but also the night of our annual J-Dilla Changed My Life tribute party. Having posted a load of pics from previous events, seen loads of tributes online, re-watched a couple of interviews (and put my son to bed) it was time to 'Turn It Up' and listen to Dilla.
I felt inspired and so hit record and threw together this 'Ruff Mix' done live in one take. It has a few of my faves, some little known gems, some breaks I have discovered recently alongside some I have known for years and is all a little thrown together for fun - as it often should be.
I hope you enjoy!
