Tribute to Digital K

DJ night
Please note: This event has already occurred.
In D.C., music royalty sometimes walks quietly among us instead of basking in accolades. That was the case with Kenneth Ruddock, also known as Digital K. Ruddock, who died suddenly last month and was the son of renowned dub scientist and producer King Tubby. Tubby elevated working a mixing desk into its own genre of music, so much so that Jamaican dub became the foundation for many styles of electronic music. Ruddock continued the dub tradition and expanded it with his own releases and DJ work. Digital K influenced many Washington DJs and producers, many of whom will join dancehall pioneer Sister Nancy at a tribute concert at Ras Hall.
