The World B-Boy Championships finals at London’s Brixton academy have become the most anticipated international live Hip-Hop event of the year and The Doctor’s Orders are excited to be hosting the official warm up party.
For this event we have lined up not only three of the event’s DJs in the shape of Philadelphia’s Skeme Richards & London’s own DJ Renegade alongside On The Real resident Shortee Blitz but also BBE Record’s legendary “Kings of Digging” Kon & Amir. With this incredible line up of DJs those wise enough to make the journey to what is already well established as London’s best monthly Hip-Hop party will be blessed with an incredible bled of Hip-Hop, original soul and lashings of B-Boy funk!
Kon & Amir first came to underground prominence through their brilliant series of “On Track” mixtapes of Soul, Jazz & Funk breaks that had sampled by the best producers in Hip-Hop. This dedication to finding and then sharing these often unknown gems meant they were the names on all Hip-Hop and Soul fans lips quickly bringing them to the attention of BBE Records with whom they have now released four compilations of brilliantly funky hard to find cuts.
When DJing Kon & Amir always bring a flavour of their labours digging through the dusty crates of the world but still keep it mixed with better known and much loved classics in a classic party style that only the dead can’t dance to.
In room 2 we are gonna be throwing things open to all the B-Boys & girls as we welcome two of the world’s most respected and best loved B-Boy DJs, the Rock Steady Crew’s own Skeme Richards & London legend DJ Renegade. They will be spinning the beats & breaks that will keep the cyphers on the floor doing the same!
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 weekly Kiss FM show 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 279 has been rocking the airwaves since 1992 on London’s Choice FM. With MOBO nominations coming thick and fast `alongside other awards throughout the year and gigs around the world it is fair to say that Numbers has the ear of the underground with every MC worth his weight in gold plaques coming though the show to shout out London. His sets at On The Real have become a highlight of the night and always leave the dance-floors sweating and smiling.
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.
On mic duties as ever is the host with the most MC Prankster with his combination of Caribbean and American heritage combined with his London swagger there is nowhere to hide but the dance-floor with him hyping the party.
