All the greats have great stories about James Dewitt Yancey aka Jay Dee aka J Dilla; now it's the turn of a continent.

A celebration of his life and times, Director Shernay LaTouche gives us: The View from the Other Side: J-Dilla A European Remembrance.

Musician; Producer; MC; and Visionary: J Dilla's short but prolific life span has impacted music fans the world over.

Filmed over a two and a half year period (2009 -- 2012) Shernay LaTouche travelled to four major European cities; London, Paris, Lausanne and Berlin to share the stories of dedicated J Dilla fans and investigate the legacy left behind.
The journey led to the discovery of underground cultures and communities, with each having initiated their own celebratory response to Yancey's musical legacy.
