7pm — 11pm 

Elec­tric Brix­ton 

Slum Vil­lage bring the icon­ic sound of their found­ing-fath­er J Dilla back to life at Elec­tric Brix­ton.

They will per­form with full live band Abstract Orches­tra on J Dilla’s Birth­day.

One of the most icon­ic and influ­en­tial Hip Hop col­lect­ives of all time, Slum Vil­lage, are return­ing to Lon­don for one massive night of old-school flows and J Dilla-pro­duced clas­sics at Elec­tric Brix­ton. Don’t miss the resur­rec­tion of the late, great producer’s son­ic leg­acy on this rare even­ing with Hip Hop roy­alty.

Emer­ging from Detroit’s under­ground Hip Hop scene in the early 90’s, friends Baat­inT3 and pro­du­cer J Dilla quickly rose to notori­ety for their immacu­lately pro­duced beats and laid back flows that were unlike any­thing before them. Their first release thus found its way into the hands of A Tribe Called Quest’s legendary MC Q‑Tip, who dis­trib­uted it amongst Hip Hop’s élite and set in motion a tra­ject­ory to fame that saw the Slum Vil­lage-sound become incred­ibly influ­en­tial dur­ing the 90’s and early 2000’s. Par­tic­u­larly, after the release of their now legendary album ‘Fant­ast­ic Vol. 2’.

In recent years, the col­lect­ive has been struck by enorm­ous tragedy with the passing of both J Dilla and Baat­in. How­ever, T3 and young pro­du­cer Young RJ are keep­ing the work of Dilla alive as they con­tin­ue to cre­ate music and tour the world togeth­er. Ever since, the pair boast col­lab­or­a­tions with the likes of Kanye WestPhife DawgDe La Soul and John Legend.
