JAZZIE B (Soul II Soul / OBE)

Last January Jazzie B rocked the spot to its foundations with an unforgettable soul infused set that turned winter instantly to summer in Jam’s basement and the packed crowd drank the bar dry so round two was inevitable!
Making the trip down from North London for this first party of 2011 is the original funki dread, Soul II Soul’s legendary Jazzie B. With an OBE, an Ivor Novello, 2 Grammys, the freedom of 5 US Cities and 6.8 Million album sales across 35 territories the only thing missing from Jazzie’s CV is a knighthood. This is not bad going for a man who started out life in the music industry as a tea boy. The spark behind all this creativity was the Soul II Soul sound system that he established with the aid of his older brothers that went on to create one of the most legendary parties of all time at Covent Garden’s Africa Centre and in tern the distinctive Soul sound of the UK in the 80’s. Never one to rest on his laurels Jazzie B is still as busy as ever with residencies in London, sets at clubs & festivals around the world and for one special January night with The Doctor’s Orders Brighton.
Joining him on his drive down from London is The Doctor’s Orders resident and driving force Spin Doctor. Having become good friends through their love of great music and the same football team they have gone on to work together not only as DJs but also promoters and have had the pleasure of spinning at each other’s birthdays. Guaranteed to be on his A game as Spin always is when joined by his friend and hero Jazzie B this is sure to be a night not to miss.
Warming things up is resident and The Doctor’s Orders man on the ground Brighton’s own Rusty Ryan. With a great eye for the crowd and an ear for the beats that make them move he is fast establishing himself as a name on the Brighton bar and club scene and will be doing his reputation only more good with his sets here at The Doctor’s Orders.
