Whilst most would associate Detroit with it’s rich techno history, there’s no doubt hip-hop has also held a prominent place in the city, and having formed in the mid-nineties, J-Dilla’s Slum Village have played an influential role in progression of the Detroit hip-hop scene. With the first two albums gaining wide recognition from peers and fans alike, Slum Village’s beats became timeless classics, symbolic of the nineties hip-hop scene. The band lost founding members J-Dilla and Baatin, but members T3 and Young RJ continued on as Slum Village and hold a firm place within the industry, touring with huge acts including Kanye West, John Legend, D’Angelo and Busta Rhymes. The boys are making a rare Australian appearance, performing live at Let Them Eat Cake and have a message for those attending this upcoming New Years. We can’t wait to welcome them back to our shores for the first time in 8 years.
