Dilla Day Winnipeg is one of several worldwide memorials held on/around Dilla's birthday (February 7th) to commemorate the life and legacy of producer/rapper/musician J Dilla.
With Super Duty Tough Work acting as an 8-piece live MPC, Dilla Day Winnipeg sees some of the city's best MCs and musicians performing Dilla classics, renditions and interpretations, backed by the illustrious SDTW band.
Join us February 10th to celebrate the life, love and music of the incomparable J Dilla.
Born in Detroit to an opera-singer mother and a jazz-musician father, James «Dilla» Yancey grew to become one of hip hop's most far-reaching influencers. Working with the likes of Slum Village, The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest, Janet Jackson, De La Soul, Mos Def, Busta Rhymes and many others, he gave us his unique sound and feel, influencing not only the beatmakers of hip hop, but also musicians from all genres.
In 2006, as the result of a blood disorder, JD passed. His legacy however, has lived-on through his music, countless unreleased projects and collaborations, a colossal record collection, the J Dilla Foundation (which focuses on funding lupus research) and the family-owned Yancey Media Group.
Every year on Dilla's birthday, people gather in various locations around the globe to remember and celebrate his love and work. Join us for the third consecutive Dilla Day Winnipeg!
Golden-era based, current-era taste. Above the clouds, below the surface. Since forming in early 2015, Super Duty Tough Work has been quietly establishing itself as the country's premier live hip hop outfit. Fronted by Brendan Grey (aka Giant #3 of Sleeping Giants) and backed by an ensemble of highly skilled local and international musicians, SDTW is an eight-piece powerhouse.
Inspired by the dirty jazz loop sound of 90s east coast hip hop, Super Duty Tough Work are the live incarnation of hip hop culture's quintessential time. Revered for their methodically curated sets, SDTW mixes laid-back with high-energy, for a satisfaction-guaranteed journey through a culture where loops are slayed and jewels are the tools of the trade.
