Timeless: Composer/Arranger Series Film Exclusive in AK City

Really excited about this little event. 
Wednesday July 21st from 8pm at AK City's Khuja Lounge, this will be a must attend event if you are around Auckland on this date.

Long anticipated, This Culture has done the work to bring you this special event. It will be a 2-hour mix presentation of some of the dopest scenes from the three Timeless Live events recorded earlier this year.

I'll be there as DJ support dropping some of my favourite Arthur Verocai, Dilla, and Mulatu Astatke joints 'Off the Record' style!
To give you a taste, find some more details and a video after the jump...

•SUITE FOR MA DUKES - a full orchestra tribute to the late great J Dilla w/ all benefits going to his mother, Maureen "Ma Dukes" Yancey. the concert was conducted by legendary LA radio DJ, Carlos Nino, and led by string maestro, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson - it also features appearances from Dwele, Bilal, Karriem Riggins, and Common among others.

•ARTHUR VEROCAI - legendary Brazilian songwriter/producer/performer. His 1972 self-titled debut was a forgotten treasure turned crate digger's dream. It has since been sampled by the likes of 9TH WONDER, MF DOOM, JNEIRO JAREL & countless others. It was re-released in 2003 on Ubiquity Records to critical acclaim.

•MULATU ASTATKE - influential Ethiopian jazz musician/arranger. His 1972 LP, Mulatu Of Ethiopia, has been a longtime favorite among record collectors & jazz connoisseurs alike. He has a newfound current audience after his music was prominently featured in Jim Jarmusch's 2005 film, BROKEN FLOWERS, starring Bill Murray - and has also been sampled by some of hip-hop's finest, the most well-known of which being NAS & DAMIAN MARLEY's "As We Enter." He's also recently collaborated with Now-Again Records recording artists, THE HELIOCENTRICS, and released an album together on Strut Records' Inspiration Information series
