Description

Leeds' 16 piece Abstract Orchestra come to Manchester to perform some of Dilla's best loved cuts from his sprawling back catalogue.

Emerging from Detroit as part of Slum Village, James Dewitt Yancey quickly became an in-demand producer in his own right. Although known for working on albums for hip hop greats including A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, The Pharcyde he also worked across soul and RnB including Janet Jackson, Erykah Badu, D'Angelo and Brand New Heavies.

Although his methods were simple, often only using an MPC3000 sampler, the product was complex with lengthy layered melodies, strung across gritty breakbeats and soulful vocal cuts. Commonly labeled as the greatest hip hop producer of all time, he brought instrumental hip hop to the mainstage.

Abstract Orchestra aim to capture the beauty of his productions with a live performance accompanied by guest rappers and vocalists.

This is an 18+ event (Please bring I.D.)
