Celebrated as one of the most innovative producers to walk the Earth, James “J Dilla” Yancey has created music that has touched ears too numerous to count. The love of his music is evidenced by the many Dilla parties/tributes that take place during the month of February around the world every year. February 23rd, Birmingham, Alabama will memorialize the life of Dilla with its third annual Dilla Day. This year BamaLoveSoul brings you an all star line up to pay homage to Dilla’s memory: DJ Rahdu, Applejac, DJ Tanner, & TrackStar the DJ plus Byron the Aquarius. The DJs will play the tunes created by Dilla that has made our bodies move and heads nod and Byron the Aquarius will show you how that magic was created w/Dilla’s main instrument of destruction, a simple MPC.
A factor in Dilla’s passing; lupus affects 1.5 million Americans yearly. Proceeds from your entry donations will go to the Lupus Foundation of America to effect change in the lives of the 5 million people affected worldwide. A party with a purpose, Dilla Day 2012 is not one to be missed!
