Slum Village x Abstract Orchestra
Summerhall - Dissection Room
Chances are, if you are anywhere near the Detroit music scene, you’ve heard of the influential hip hop trio that makes up Slum Village. The group was founded in the early 90s by 3 childhood friends: Baatin, T3, rapper and producer J Dilla, who all grew up together in the Conant Gardens neighborhood of Detroit, MI. After leaving Pershing High School, the trio began to forge a path into the Detroit underground hip hop scene and quickly found themselves steadily gaining popularity. Slum Village continues their journey with an invigorated energy as T3 holds down the legacy with Grammy nominated producer Young RJ. Abstract Orchestra is an allstar Hip-hop Big Band made of the finest musicians in the U.K. Inspired by the legendary live performances of The Roots with Jay-Z and the 40 piece orchestral arrangements by Miguel-Atwood Ferguson of the work of J Dilla, the band strives to merge great musical arrangements with incredible Hip-hop to create an amazing live experience that truly is jaw dropping.
