James Yancey, better known as J Dilla was born in Detroit. His work as a producer has a defining role in Hip-Hop. He produced hits for A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Common, Erykah Badu and Janet Jackson. At 32 he passed away in Los Angeles in the care of his Mother, Maureen “Ma Dukes” Yancey of a lupus related Illness. In “Suite For Ma Dukes” Miguel Atwood-Ferguson pays tribute to Dilla by interpreting his music for a 60-piece orchestra featuring Special guests Bilal, Dwele, Posdnuos, Talib Kweli, Karriem Riggins and more. This live performance left many in the sold out crowd in tears and has had a similarly powerful impact on those lucky enough to see it so far.
“The combination of the interpretations of Dilla’s genius along with the beautifully shot footage had me weeping in an odd mix of sadness at Dilla’s passing and joy of his work living on.” Spin Doctor

“I attended the timeless event in LA. J Dilla is the greatest. To hear his music being expressed in that form just let me know once again how great he is. It moved me for real…” Common
“That’s just about the most powerful thing I’ve heard in a long time. Brilliant” Gilles Peterson
“A tribute to J-Dilla with a 60-piece orchestra led by Miguel Atwood Ferguson, whose arrangements translate the crisp Hip-Hop into sweepingly beautiful sounds capes, while keeping the urban bounce of the originals intact. At times, such as the slow building Untitled/Fantastic, the results induce goose bumps” Mojo
“Miguel Atwood Ferguson’s adaptations of Dilla Classics, all backed by a full orchestra, shot in black and white and seamlessly edited are downright captivating.” Shook
