To mark 10 years of these incredible parties celebrating the genius of James ‘J Dilla’ Yancey, The Doctor’s Orders have booked their biggest line up to date. Featuring a live performance by those that worked more closely with Dilla than any others plus A special DJ set from De La Soul’s DJ Maseo and live performances by his first MC partner Phat Kat and his brother Illa J this is going to be the most exciting of these special annual events yet.

Standing alone as THE Hip-Hop event of the year it is hard to better it year on year but with this incredible line up and another exclusive T-shirt only available at the event this is already impossible to miss.

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 an incredible line 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, a genius & the quintessential producers’ producer 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”.
