We caught the legendary DJ Premier playing at a Doctors Orders night at Plan B back in February (review here and interview here) and it was without a doubt one of the greatest DJ sets to grace our ear holes. As well as destroying the turntables with sharp cuts, tight mixes and hard boom bap beats, he also takes to the microphone to catch jokes and kick anecdotes about the tune he’s playing, something that adds an extra element of showmanship to proceedings. Despite the relatively short time since that last show, a return from the mighty Premo is definitely something to look forward to.
This time however, he’s accompanied by an impressive supporting lineup, perhaps The Doctors Orders best yet, and to celebrate they’ve moved premises to Scala club in Kings Cross. Another of Hip Hops top dogs, Stones Throw Records founder Peanut Butter Wolf, joins Premo to play a live Audio Visual set that will no doubt feature some of the MF Doom, Madlib and J Dilla tracks he’s made possible as well as an eclectic selection from his extensive music collection. UK turntable dons The Nextmen also feature to represent our side of the pond, utilizing their lightning fast hands to work through a party pumping selection of Hip Hop, Reggae, Soul and more. Lastly, residents Spin Doctor, Mr Thing, Chris P Cuts and Breakin Bread’s Kazahaya are joined by MC Prankster on hosting duties.
This is guaranteed an unmissable night for London hip hop heads (and those from further affield) so head over to The Doctors Orders Website to grab tickets.
