The Godfather of Boom Bap is back and rocking a real club set!
DJ Premier is bar none the single most respected and infuential producer in Hip-Hop, not just today but for the past 30 odd years. His signature ‘Boom Bap’ sound, honed through his years as one half of the legendary Gangstarr, alongside the late great GURU, is the definitive sound not only of ‘Golden Era’ Hip-Hop but of New York Hip-Hop as a whole.
Having produced bangers for every of Hip-Hop’s greatest MCs his discography is the most complete of any producer out there. From Biggie & Jay-z to Busta & Nas to Luda & Snoop & even as far as Limp Bizkit & Christina Aguilera there is no one that DJ Premier hasn’t worked with without ever loosing that signature ‘Premo Sound’.
Part of his phenomenal success is the man’s constant work ethic. When not in the studio he is constantly on the decks either recording for his ‘Live from HQ” podcast or touring and it is this constant drive that keep him one of the most exciting DJs to hear in a genuine club setting like you will here tonight.
Also flying in is a man who would be happy to describe himself as DJ Premier’s protégé; Statik Selektah, another producer who has a classic Boom Bap sound and sick skills on the turntables. With production credits for legends like Q-Tip, Talib Kweli & Mobb Deep as well as new school acts like Mac Miller, Joey Badass & Freddie Gibbs this is one producer who will continue to rise.
Supporting our visitors as ever is a cast of The Doctor’s Orders favourites who spend their life ripping up London’s clubs in the shape of The Foreign Beggar’s own DJ Nonanmes, Mr Thing & Spin Doctor and. Also providing a live element to the night is Skillit who will be marking the release of his new album with an early PA to get the places warmed up right.
