As we continue to celebrate the life of J Dilla on this the 4th anniversary of his untimely passing, we bring you another gem in his honor. As if it needs saying, Dilla's imprint in the music game is still as strong as ever four years later. In celebration of his life, today we get another clip from the upcoming Timeless DVD release, The Suite for Ma Dukes. In this latest piece we witness Miguel Atwood-Ferguson's arrangement of Dwele's "Angel" backed by the Suite for Ma Dukes Orchestra. Here's a quote from Mochilla's own B+, who shot some of Dilla's most memorable photos: "Today is the fourth anniversary of Dilla's untimely passing. People are celebrating his life all month long. At Mochilla, we have spent the past year working on A Suite for Ma Dukes. Until now we have held our cards close to our chest releasing videos and entirely instrumental pieces. But today in homage to the man responsible for all this we are releasing, just to you, the first vocal performance from Suite for Ma Dukes…. Dwele sang Angel that night without rehearsal. It is a classic. Miguels's arrangement is super heavy and Bob Power made it magic."
