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 three years of throwing London's friendliest Hip-Hop party @ Herbal they are launching this new night in the heart of the West End to bring the sounds that matter to the masses of fans that are screaming out for an opportunity to dress up and get down to the sounds of the New York streets in a London basement. Joining our host Spin Doctor as resident DJs for what is sure to become another not to miss monthly event are London's most popular and talented DJs. Between them they have been rocking clubs & events across the world for longer than any of them would care to mention but this wealth of experience will be put to good use as they bless a new generation of true school Hip-Hop heads with the sounds they are denied on mainstream radio and music TV. Think J-Dilla not J-Kwon, Little Brother not Lil Wayne, & Prince Paul not Sean Paul. If that was not enough we also have London’s best B-Boy DJs hosting our monthly FREE B-Boy cypher for London’s ever-growing community of dancers.
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 5 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!
