Timeless: The Composer/Arranger Series is a 3 part concert series which took place in Los Angeles during February and March 2009. Presented by vtech and mochilla, the series pays homage to the composer/arrangers who have influenced hip-hop in the most literal and profound ways.

Expect insane performances by Arthur Verocai (Brazil), Mulatu Astatke (Ethiopia), J Dilla, Suite For Ma Dukes. Also, DJ sets by Madlib, Cut Chemist, J.Rocc, and Quantic (Columbia).

A stand out number was Arthur Verocai’s Flying to L.A, which was written specially for the concert. Think early 70’s Brazilian jazzy folk which has been sampled by the likes of MF Doom and Little Brother.
