25.2. - Moments of J. Dilla @ Bohannon
24 February 2012



Dister & Geroe präsentieren
Moments of James Yancey / J Dilla

Samstag, 25.02.12
Bohannon Soul Club
Dircksenstrasse 40
10178 Berlin
Vernissage / Dokumentation Shernay Latouche:
20:00 Uhr - 23:00 Uhr
Beginn Aftershowpartty:
23:00 Uhr

James "Dewitt" Yancey besser bekannt als J. Dilla galt schon zu Lebzeiten
als einer der höchst gehandelten Produzenten im Hip Hop Universum. Seine
ersten erfolgreichen Gehversuche unternahm er mit Q-Tip & Ali Shaheed
Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) unter dem Pseudonym The Ummah. Dieses
Trio war Mitte der 90er durch ihren einzigartigen Soul Produktionsstil
besonders bei Künstlern wie Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, De La Soul, Busta
Rhymes, Common und The Roots sehr geschätzt. Bis dato arbeitet das
Produzenten Wunderkind eher im Hintergrund.

Mit seinem ersten Album Welcome 2 Detroit auf BBE Records begann Dilla langsam seinen Namen
bekannter zu machen. 2003 war das Jahr in dem nun keiner mehr an Dilla
vorbeikam. Mit Ruff Draft schrieb er Produzentengeschichte und setzte
sich durch seine späteren Alben Donuts, The Shining und Champion Sound
(Gemeinschaftsprojekt mit Madlib) endgültig ein Denkmal. Nur 3 Jahre
später (2006) verlor die Welt einen ihrer kreativsten und prägendsten Hip
Hop Produzenten aller Zeiten. Vorzeigeproduzenten der neuen Ära wie
Flying Lotus, Onra, Flako, Fulgeance oder Mr. Dibiase nennen Dilla als ihr größtes Vorbild.

6 Jahre nach seinem Tod finden sich wiedereinmal Djs, Künstler &
Liebhaber seiner Werke zusammen, um im Rahmen der Dilla Dokumentation
von Shernay Latouche (Nike, DSL55) aus London, die Dillafahne für Berlin hochzuhalten.
Auf der Vernissage wird Shernay Latouche dann alle
beteiligten Gäste, Djs & Künstler auf Film verewigen und zeigen wie
Berlin diesen einmaligen Produzenten und seine Arbeit würdigt.
Am 25.02.2012 wird endlich Berlin seinen Platz auf der für
2013 angekündigten Dokumentation einnehmen.

Neben exklusiven Bildern und Fotostrecken werden natürlich die
unzähligen Dillaproduktionen zu hören sein. Dafür verantwortlich sind
u.a. The Smells, Suff Daddy, Dister, Boo, LeBob, Hazeem und andere
Dillafanatiker, um der Welt zu zeigen wie tief die Verbundenheit der
Arbeiten von James "Dewitt" Yancey in Berlin verwurzelt ist.

FINEST EGO | German / Austrian / Swiss Compilation
1 January 2012



A while has passed since our last compilation has been released but just in time for the 2011 holiday season Project: Mooncircle and Finest Ego bring you the already fifth edition of our acclaimed compilation series. Shifting focus towards central Europe, we find the three countries Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Sharing lots of their historical and cultural heritage, this copious collection contains work from producers of a wide range of musical manifestations – all located in the spectrum between traditional sample-based and organic sound to electronic and experimental compositions. Grown up in the nineties with the organic sounds from across the big pond and a long tradition of electronic music in the German speaking world, this compilation showcases the fusion of electronic and classical soulful organic elements in the beat scene. The sound is as diverse as the country and its people, from Spaetzle to Klopse and from HipHop to Techno, on this compilation you can find Boombap from the likes of Brenk & Suff Daddy but also electronic sounds from the likes of Robot Koch and Bit Tuner as well as atmospheric sonical waves from Glenn Astro and Anthony Drawn.

The influences vary from Jazz records, video games, Hip Hop, Drum 'n' Bass and Techno. But are there two different camps clashing here? Retro vs future, mountain village vs urban center, winter vs summer...

The compilation includes acts like Chief, Brenk, Dexter, Mono:Massive, Hulk Hodn, Captain Crook, Stroe, Hubert Daviz, Comfort Fit, Robot Koch, Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie, Quendolin Fender, Ju-Ar, Twit One, Suff Daddy, Figub Brazlevic, Szenario, Portformat, Flowtec, D-Fekt & Mr. Beef, Bit-Tuner, Feux, Kalifornia Kurt, B-Ju, Playpad Circus, Flex Fab, Ill-Luzion, Anthony Drawn, Hazeem, Minor Sick, XL The Red One, Glenn Astro, Frederic Robinson, and Willy Sunshine.

Design by LGB5 x Alexander Brade. A&R: Martin Pohle. Mixed & Mastered by Sven Friederichs.
Release date: December, 25th.
