Timeless: A Suite for Ma Dukes - An Incredible Night

My favorite Dilla experience did not directly involve Dilla. Read the original post below.

Sunday night I had the pleasure to attend A Suite for Ma Dukes. It was an incredibly inspiring night. The night started out with DJ House Shoes spinning about a 1 hour set of Dilla joints. At first, you could tell that House Shoes felt a little awkward spinning in front of a crowd that was entirely seated inside an amphitheater more accustomed to hosting symphonies, than hip hop shows. After about 10 minutes, House Shoes got into his groove and performed an excellent set. Following the set from DJ House Shoes, J.Rocc performed for about 1 1/2 hours, spinning an array of Dilla cuts and breaks. As usual, J.Rocc did not disappoint. Then came the highlight of the night, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson's 40 piece orchestra came out and performed 2 hours of original compositions influenced by Dilla. This was some serious next level sh*t! The night was inspiring beyond description. So inspiring, that it was worth not falling asleep until 4am (having to wake-up at 6:30). Why was I up until 4am? You ask. I was up until 4am because the evening had me on such a high that I simply could not calm down enough to fall asleep.

Finale and Encore

Dear Friends of Mochilla,

First of all, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for investing your hard earned $35 into our tiny company on the promise that the Timeless DVD Box Set would be shipped to you on the 30th of March. Unfortunately, I am in the unenviable position of informing you that the product won't be shipping on time due to circumstances out of our control. Our production lead time has been extended due to manufacturing issues.

I am very sorry to inform you that the DVDs are currently behind schedule and will be arriving in 2-3 weeks. Once they arrive, we will ship them via Priority USPS to you with a small gift from us for your kindness, support and above all, your PATIENCE.

You will still have the box set weeks before it hits the stores. The whole series is truly a treasure trove of amazing performances and stunning music complete with special features.
