The J Dilla Tribute & Fundraiser aka DC Loves Dilla was created after the untimely passing of James “J Dilla” Yancey in the Spring of 2006.

Jon Laine (music director), Brent Munch Joseph (DJ, Cultural Curator) and the rest of the DC Loves Dilla massive lent their collective talents to this musical homage. The spirit of this beloved trackmaster lives on.

When you enter the DC Loves Dilla Tribute, you enter a space…sacred and revered by music-lovers and hip-hop aficionados. You enter a space where creativity is king. A space where respect for the microphone is trumped by only the music on which the lyrics are laid. A sonic church where the aggressively aspirated drumbeat is calmly massaged by sweet melodies in a way that only J Dilla could marry. From the first horn blair to the last piano key. From the first thump of the kick to the last sample played. From the first guitar lick to the last word sung. You realize and know…you are somewhere very special.
