Micall, one of the unsung heroes of the UK scene, is joined on stage by a host of the hottest MC & DJ talents in the UK. Performing short live PA’s are Onoe Caponoe who’s distinct sound is inspired as much by punk as it is funk, and the brilliant vocalist / percussionist / producer Mo Kolours who is already turning a lot of influential heads.

Performing the headline PA of the night is of course Micall Parknsun who is celebrating the launch of his brilliant new single ‘Grade & Liquor’. A slice of brilliant club friendly crunk this first track from the forthcoming ‘Me Myself & Akai’ album is testament of why Micall has held such a strong place on the homegrown Hip-Hop scene for so long.

Making sure this party goes off with a bang is a dream-team of DJs that will be keeping the place bumping till the small hours. Warming things up is the latest talent to emerge on the YNR label – Telemachus, spinning a mixed bag alongside Confucius MC on hype duties. Following him and the live PA’s kicking things up a gear are the boys behind the whole Sampled event and many of the best parties in London Spin Doctor & Mo Fingaz. Taking things up yet another notch is former ITF champion DJ Jazz T, Jehst’s tour DJ and long time associate of YNR Productions. Making sure that there is no standing room in the club are UK legend Mr Thing, smashing up the dance as only he can and the post-Dubstep/future-Hip Hop sounds of Dub Police’s very own Distinction. Expect a mix of non-stop bangers old and new as we leave no stone unturned!

INFO & TICKETS: http://thedoctorsorders.com/v2/index.php/murs-fashawn/
Please bring valid photo ID!

These two underground Californian favorites have not only joined forces to release the brilliant ‘This Generation’ album (Duck Down) but also to take this opportunity to hit the roads of Europe to show their phenomenal skills in the studio are easily transferable to the stage.

Murs made a name for himself among true Hip-Hop fans when signed to El-P’s hugely influential Def Jux label. Having released a total of eight full-length albums in since 1997 he has always kept true to his underground credentials no more so than working on his two albums with super producer 9th Wonder or this new work with Fashawn.

Fashawn, who is performing in the UK for the very first time, has a well-deserved fanatical underground following from his brilliant work with the likes of Blu, Alchemist & Dilated Peoples. His full length Exile produced album ‘Boy Meets World’ is a cold stone classic while his eleven mixtapes have caused a huge stir.

With support from some of London’s hottest DJs this show is a guaranteed sell out so do not delay!

SKYZOO

With his critically-acclaimed debut album “The Salvation,” Skyzoo was both Brooklyn’s narrator and curator. The album hit the Billboard Top 200 charts at No. 14, the fourth-highest position among new artists. Working with a cast of producers that included 9th Wonder, Just Blaze, Nottz, Black Milk, Best Kept Secret, and Illmind, he created a sonic successor to hip hop milestones “Reasonable Doubt,” “Ready to Die,” “Illmatic” and “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.”

The lyrics are why Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg felt confident enough to put a lord of the underground among Nas, Andre Benjamin, Lil’ Wayne, and Talib Kweli as the top lyricists alive.

TORAE

Torae gained recognition by collaborating with DJ Premier and Marco Polo. He and Marco Polo went on to receive critical acclaim for their collaborative LP entitled „Double Barrel“.

With Cosigns from Hiphop Dx, 2DopeBoyz, Nah Right, Hot 97, XXL and a dope new album feat. production from DJ Premier and Pete Rock, if you are serious about Hiphop this is a man you need to catch up with.

CHIMA ANYA

Chima Anya is a name familiar to anyone with a serious interest in Hip-hop in the UK. His debut mixtape came to national attention with support from Kiss, Choice, 1xtra and Radio 1, all while practising full time as a medical doctor.

Having shared stages with legends such as Amp fiddler, KRS 1, Jay Electronica,Dead Prez and Pharaohe Monch it’s no surprise that when asked Chima states his greatest joy comes from performing. Always engaging, energetic and charismatic, Chima also fronts his own genre-leading 4 piece electronic / hip-hop outfit; a group that can only be described as a “must see”.

DJs
SoulBrew All-Stars: Spin Doctor & Andy Bird
Jazzie B (Soul 2 Soul)
Ashley Beedle
DJ Vadim (BBE / Ninja Tunes)
& Kyri R2

For the past eight years SoulBrew have been the go to parties for those looking for carefree, unpretentious parties with the very best guests playing great sounds. It is a formula that has worked well at every one of their previous 8 packed New Year’s Eve events making it one of the most established and popular parties in town so if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!

This year residents Spin Doctor & Andy Bird are joined by another incredible line up of guests all of whom have a proven SoulBrew track record as well as huge fan bases after years of producing great music & DJing in every country with a set of decks.

Between them they have worked with everyone from James Brown to Elton John and Lilley Allen to Alice Russell, sold millions of records worldwide, performed in front of huge crowds and in the case of two in particular boast an OBE, two Ivor Novello awards not to mention 2 Grammys between them.

Once again you can expect a fun packed mix of sounds old and new that will take in everything including Soul, Disco, Hip-Hop, House, Reggae and beyond at London’s best value New Year’s Eve party.

SoulBrew All-Stars: Spin Doctor & Andrew Bird
These fellas have been rocking parties collectively and individually throughout the capital, up and down the country and in far reaches of the world for well over 8 years now. As the starting place for any SoulBrew party they know what it takes to get a party bumping and will be doing just that as we see in the new year.

Jazzie B (Soul II Soul)
A long time friend of SoulBrew’s this man is an institution having won Grammys, an Ivor Novelo, received the keys to several American cities and this year been a teacher at Jamie’s Dream School. Despite having made his start in the industry over 30 years ago he is still as hungry and passionate as ever. Constantly in demand playing live shows and DJ gigs throughout the world to packed houses it’s no wonder even the Queen bigged him up with an OBE.

Ashley Beedle
Has as many guises as Carlos The Jackal having been making music as X-Press 2 (with whom he bagged an Ivor), Ballistic Brothers, Disco Evangelists, Black Science Orchestra, Roots Revolution Jamayka Boys (credited by many for the first Dubstep production) & Mavis to name a few. Spinning tunes around the world since the early 80’s he is a DJ’s DJ, equally comfortable playing House, Hip Hop & Disco as he is Reggae and Techno. This open-minded versatility explains why he is such a favourite of the fun loving boys and girls that make up the SoulBrew regulars.

DJ Vadim (BBE / Ninja Tunes)
Has an impeccable reputation as a DJ, Producer, A&R and all round good guy. Having released an incredible eight full length albums for renowned labels such as Ninja Tunes and BBE his stock is incredibly still on the rise with international DJ and live shows keeping him in air miles. His funk fueled eclectic mix of the old and new takes in everything from Reggae and Dubstep to Hip-Hop and Disco so is sure to be whipping up a storm as we party into 2012.

Kyri R2
Is one of the unsung heroes of London’s party scenes rocking every place he plays no matter the night of the week or size of the dance-floor. His impeccable choice of soul drenched floor fillers have seen him well served not only when DJing but with the choices he has made for his excellent R2 Records. With Kyri in charge you are certainly in safe hands.
