There are many talented beat makers and producers, but there will only ever be one J Dilla.
For the latest instalment commemorating Dilla's untimely death, a local line-up of Auckland artists will be paying homage to the man who shaped a new sound for hiphop that inspired beatsmiths, MCs and music lovers around the globe.
Yoko-Zuna (LIVE - playing Dilla 2.0)
J Dilla a.k.a Jay Dee, born James D. Yancey, was one of the few artists whose records were bought on sight, played until digested and then discussed among fans and critics. He kept Hip Hop relevant long after many of its greatest heroes had creatively left it for dead. Well respected musicians such as Questlove, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest, Common & Janet Jackson have worked with, and been influenced by J Dilla’s talents and he is often described as “your favourite producers favourite producer”

PSA: Mndsgn & Ivan Ave will now be joining us in Auckland !!
Auckland - 10th February 2018
Ivan Ave (NOR)
Joyce Wrice (USA)
Silentjay & Jace XL (AUS)
+ DJs Sam Harmony & Lori
Live and direct from Crown Ruler HQ we’re letting the cat out of the bag:
This summer Joyce Wrice, Benedek & Silentjay & Jace XL are making a mission across NZ.
For all those people who have been bumping Ivan Ave and MNDSGN’s Low Jams EP every morning since their Soundcloud-savvy mate bopped them over the head with it in 2014, blushing at the smile in Joyce Wrice’s maple syrup coated pipes when she serenades them on I Want You, closing their eyes and pretending they’re floating in a marshmallow funk paradise to the soundtrack of Bene’s World, fashioning a damn near perfect zoot for their significant other to the soundtrack of Silentjay & Jace XL’s Rockabye… Gear yourself up to see the all stars mentioned above, live (!), on the same night.
Hailing from Los Angeles, Oslo & Melbourne, each artist has had a unique contribution to the re-imagination and amalgamation of RnB, boogie and hip hop – in their own right, and across the countless collabs shared amongst them. And, to answer the question plaguing your mind; yes, these collabs will happen before your very ears!
Limited tickets available now via Eventbrite, so make the click towards a funkier future.

“Old Zealand is Aotearoa before the lies, before the concrete trees and dirty rivers,
Old Zealand is now and then without being subjective, Old Zealand is objective.
Old Zealand is what happens when the last generation talk about the next one without listening,
It is the Permaculture used to heal the soil dehydrated by societies malnourishment.
Old Zealand is what happens to ‘new’ land discovered by people running from home in search of what they forgot.
Old Zealand is what happens to someone that never leaves.
Old Zealand Is both you and I simultaneously.
Old Zealand is a story told by Ryan Hendriks,
It is not Ryan’s story.. Old Zealand to Ryan is like the land owned by foreign investors that once nourished his ancestors children.
Old Zealand is what happens when fact and fiction got killed by the greater good.”

To celebrate the much anticipated release of their debut album, Mascuzzi Jacuzzi (out Dec 1st) and on the back of their first Australian tour, Dunedin favourites, Albion Place are returning to NZ shores in what promises to be one of the most memorable tours of the summer. Beginning in Wellington, the young indie-rockers then head through Mount Maunganui, Auckland, Nelson, Christchurch, Queenstown and Dunedin with a selection of their new material, and all of the old favourites.
Mascuzzi Jacuzzi is a real coming-of-age album both lyrically and musically that offers long time listeners their first substantial taste of a truly unique Albion Place sound. It is sensual and groovy, combining smooth soulful melodies with funky rhythm and psychedelic synth undertones. When asked about the new album the band said “It’s the first time we’ve come out with something that’s exactly what we intended it to be, It feels fresh and it’s exciting knowing that this project is the best description of where we’re at as humans.” Working with the likes of Oli Wilson (The Chills, Knives at Noon), Steven John Marr (Kane Strang, Doprah) and Tom Bell (The Shifting Sands) there is plenty of reason to to be excited about this coming together of talent and experience.
2017 has been a big year for Albion Place. Selling out rooms across New Zealand both in support of their single Easier, and in conjunction with Corona on NZ’s first Corona Sunset’s tour. The band have also secured a main stage slot at famous New Years festival Rhythm & Alps, where they will look to kickstart what promises to be an exciting 2018 for the young band.
Joined by an eclectic group support acts, the Mascuzzi Jacuzzi tour will be a unique display of today’s exciting young New Zealand music scene and should not be missed. Tickets available from eventfinda.co.nz
