Last year LA based event/photo/video super-group Mochilla put together an awe inspiring series of concerts called Timeless. The three concerts that took place in LA last year we’re recorded and filmed and are now released as a dvd, with many of the works available online to view. The Suite for Ma Dukes was the final conert and a tribute to the late great beatsmith J Dilla. Carlos Niño and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson composed the Suite which began in 2007, on what would have been Dilla’s 33rd birthday, when Niño & Atwood-Ferguson recorded and released their strings, brass and reeds-only version of J Dilla & Common’s “Nag Champa” to DJs, producers and fans over the internet for free. They had written the entire piece to accompany the record as a their tribute to Dilla, feeling that the producer was still in the track not by his presence but by his absence. The suite is a unique and meditative response to an iconoclastic hip-hop figure who continues to ignite the imagination of countless producers and artists worldwide, even after his passing.
