Dr Syntax and Pete Cannon

Dr Syntax and Pete Cannon have been touring as an MC and DJ duo since 2010, and they have recorded an album, ‘Killer Combo’, due for release in early 2014.

Both reputed solo artists in their own right, together they combine witty lyricism, gob-smackingly banging beats and general tomfoolery to great effect. Dr Syntax has been a well-known face on the UK hip hop scene since he appeared on Foreign Beggars’ ‘Asylum Speakers’ album in 2004. Since then he has released numerous albums (including 2012’s ‘A Slice Of Fried Gold’ with Tom Caruana) and done countless shows worldwide. Recently he has been gaining a whole new level of exposure as frontman for acclaimed Manchester hip hop band The Mouse Outfit, whose debut album ‘Escape Music’ dropped in May and features Syntax heavily.

Blackpool-born Pete Cannon has had an incredibly prolific year, having produced for top UK rap acts such as Dirty Dike, Lunar C and Verb T, a single with Detroit rap legend Guilty Simpson (‘This Year’), releasing numerous projects and even producing a top 10 chart hit for Rizzle Kicks (‘Lost Generation’). You would be hard pressed to find anyone more enthusiastic about music, and on top of this, he has the most elaborate haircut in UK hip hop.

Few tunes have been heard as regularly at The Doctor’s Orders events over the past 5+ years as those recorded by the greatest Hip-Hop group of all time A Tribe Called Quest, so we are ecstatic to have one of their three members in the shape of Ali Shaheed Muhammad join us for an Exclusive DJ set at On The Real.

Queens Natives A Tribe Called Quest reshaped the Hip-Hop scene with the release of their five classic albums that all pushed the soulful, jazz drenched sounds that became not only thier trademark but that of Golden Era Hip-Hop on the whole. With a catalogue of stone wall classics such as ‘Can I Kick It’, ‘Award Tour’, ‘Electric Relaxation’ ‘Scenario’, ‘Bonita Applebum” and the Dilla produced ‘Stressed Out’ the Tribe sound is as popular today as ever. Having recently reformed to tour and with a documentary on the band due to be released shortly A Tribe Called Quest are now back on top of the game where they belong.

Away from Tibe Ali was a founding member of the production outfit The Ummah, alongside Q-Tip and J-Dilla, producing great tracks not only for Tribe but Busta Rhymes, D’Angelo and Janet Jackson to name a few. He then went on to show an even more soulful side of his work in founding Lucy Pearl alongside Raphael Sadeeq and Dawn Robinson. With this wealth of musical experience behind him this exclusive DJ set it sure to take a guaranteed packed house through a great journey of Hip-Hop, R&B, Soul and beyond.

As ever these visiting guests are welcomed by one of the strongest resident line ups in the land as London’s finest DJ 279 and Spin Doctor set the mood with their brilliant party blend of classic and brand new bangers. Holding down duties on the mic are our host MC Prankster the Trini Gladiata who will be keeping the crowd involved with his classic crowd hyping style while the brilliant Skillit joins us for a live PA.
