Dilla Orchestra..

So, we at rapsploitation sessions are no different from any other modern music lover in the respect that we love the work of J Dilla.
Recently, Carlos Nino & Miguel Atwood Ferguson leaked two mp3s of orchestral arrangements of classic dilla tunes (Nag Champa & Fall in Love) on the net and has followed it up by producing a full EP called "Suite for Ma Dukes".
Recently his orchestra got together to perform classic and obscure dilla productions & tracks to an exclusive live audience. Here's a short clip (props to from the performance featuring cameo's from Posdnous, Talib Kweli, Illa J, Ma Dukes, House Shoes, Kariem Riggins, Amp Fiddler and many more i'm sure were in attendance on the night.
Apparently there was a film crew, so fingers crossed they are planning to release a DVD of the whole night.
