London's west end is screaming out for a dose of underground Hip-Hop and original Soul and who better to prescribe it than The Doctor's Orders.
After 3 months of headline guests from the US in the shape of DJ Neil Armstrong, Sadat X and Bobbito matched by storming sets from our residents we are bringing back to the UK for this extremely special album launch party for the UK’s most prolific and respected Hip-Hop producer who is pulling out all the stops and calling in an all star line up of MCs & singers to join him.
Baby J is the UK’s very own Kanye West. Both hailing away from their respective nations’ perceived centers of Hip-Hop they have both become experts in their field and man-magnets for the finest in Hip-Hop & R&B talent. Having struck gold with his ska remix of Mark Ronson’s “Valerie” featuring girl of the moment Amy Winehouse which reached number 2 in the national charts and stayed there for eleven weeks as well as spending 5 weeks at the top of MTV’s airplay chart Baby J’s star is shining brighter than ever. With production credits for American Hip-Hop giants including Wu-Tang Clan, Brand Nubian and Dead Prez for his new “Baby Food” album he has selected a stella line up of UK vocal talent many of whom will be performing on the night. Once again he has shown his credentials as a studio giant and will be showing how those talents are matched by his skills on the decks as he rocks the house for the dedicated party people.
Joining Baby J to perform tracks from his new album is titan of the UK Hip-Hop scene Million Dan that has one of the most definitive styles of any MC in the land. Stepping up to display the stunning soulful vocals that have seen her selected to travel the world as the primary vocalist for Marc Ronson’s live show is Tawiah. Derby native Alex Blood will display the his lyrical dexterity that is as equally influenced by Marc Bolan as it is Toots and the Maytals. Malik will also be stepping up to raise the roof with the help of another packed dance-floor.
Shortee Blitz is a shining light of the Hip-Hop scene in the UK. Whether supporting traveling US stars, holding it down on one of his two weekly Kiss FM shows or tearing the roof off clubs all over the globe one thing is for certain and that is that this MOBO award winning DJ is always going to be spinning with a smile on his face. Even more so now he is a resident at for a night dedicated to the Hip-Hop & Soul styles he truly loves.
DJ MK first came to prominence through his now infamous mid 90's mixtapes that are still the prize possessions of those wise enough to keep their tape decks well oiled. They now represent the blueprint for the sounds that MK will be spinning at this new night. When away from his day jobs as Roots Manuva's DJ & as Kiss FM's Thursday night Hip-Hop DJ extraordinaire he will be found doing what he does best, rocking crowds with the sounds of his beloved Hip-Hop.
Spin Doctor is the driving force behind the phenomenal success of The Doctor's Orders and while not planning domination of the UK's party scene is most at ease behind a set of decks. The early influence of his 5 older brothers and sisters record collections developed into an obsession with soul tinged music of all styles which he uses to this day when treating dance-floors to his fearless sets of party platters.
The B-Boy Cypher is a circle in which dancers display their skills in a battle of one-upmanship. Each month London’s finest b-boys and girls will be heading to the west end to display their finesse to the sounds of the very best b-boy DJs in the business. Skeg has been the driving force behind the ever-popular Breakin' Bread nights for the past 10+ years and has developed an ability to cut up Funk records unrivalled in the capital. DJ Hooch was dropping bombs at his legendary Funkin' Pussy night, the longest running weekly Hip-Hop & Funk club known to mankind, before many of the current crop of Hi-Hop heads were out of short trousers. As the man responsible for the annual UK B-Boy Championships his credentials among the dancing community are unparalleled. As a talented B-Boy himself D.Bo knows exactly what sounds they want to hear when hitting the floor and he will not disappoint!
