History of Hip-Hop @...

Once again we partied through all eras of Hip-Hop music. Starting from 70s breaks and beats and moving through thumping 80s rap, 90s boom bap, jiggy 2000s bangers and right through today’s biggest club-rumbling hits. No one makes these parties like the crowd, this time consisting of all age groups and walks of hip-hop heads. Huge thank you to all the party people who came and got down on the sunny Southbank! DJs in order of appearance (and era) were: DJ Lok (Breaks & Beats) Ralphonze 90 (80s) Chris Read (80s/90s) Spin Doctor (90s) Mo Fingaz (90s/2000s) Russ Ryan (2000s) CWD (2010s) & Host/Birthday Boy MC Pranksta the Trinigladiata [Show as slideshow]...

Prince ‘For Yo...

Spin Doctor’s All Vinyl Price ‘For You’ Tribute Mix 2016 has been a horrific year for loosing musical heroes. Last month I was rocked by the death of Phife from A Tribe Called Quest and last night’s news of Prince’s passing hit me nearly as hard. I’ve been a huge fan since being introduced by my older sisters in the early 80s (the copy of ‘Sign Of The Times’ used in this mix was my sisters till I stole it) and so I was inspired to do this all vinyl tribute mix of just some of the classics that the purple one blessed us with! Starting with the intro to Prince’s very first album and exploring some of his best love tracks this is an all party tribute to the Purple one. RIGHT CLICK TO DOWNLOAD THIS...

The Jazz Cafe

Some words on The Jazz Cafe from Spin Doctor As some of you may have already heard London’s legendary The Jazz Cafe is goes through some changes. The Doctor’s Orders has had many great nights at the venue putting on great shows with legends such as Big Daddy Kane, Jazzy Jeff, Talib Kweli, The Last Poets (plus many more) and our hugely popular Hip-Hop vs RnB monthly club night (now re-launching at The Garage). I was honored to play a part in their programming over the last few years and in their special 25th anniversary celebrations last year. We want to thank all of the incredible staff that helped make all the events such a success and a pleasure to promote. The work that goes on behind the scenes at a venue like The Jazz Café, putting on 500+ events a year, is phenomenal and when done well goes largely unnoticed. Special shout outs go to Ivor 2 step, Sazzle ‘T-Rex’, John Chips & gravy, Guestlist Goose, French Ralf, Pajoe the party and Sheila the smile. What does the future hold? Right now that is a little unclear. We have known about the take over for some time but been unable to discuss it until the deal completed. The new owners, The Columbo Group, are the people behind XOYO, The Old Queens Head, Phonox and The Blues Kitchen. As we understand it the venue is closed until late May for a refurb at which time it will reopen still as The Jazz Cafe. The focus will remain on being a hub for live music seven nights a week with club nights on weekends. For many the venue has not only been somewhere to discover new music but also hear legends perform in a very intimate...
