In a continued celebration of our friends The Doctors Orders reaching their 10 year anniversary, Spin Doctor has put together his favourite 10 DJ Sets throughout the years. In no particular order, spin Doctor highlights sharing a stage with the likes of Jazzy Jeff, Mr Thing, The Nextmen, DJ Nu Mark and many others. You can view the full list below.
Jazzy Jeff @ BBE 10.5 – 30th Sept 2006 @ Canvas
This is still one of the biggest shows we have done and for me this was the set of the night and was the first time I heard Jeff spin. It was a real eye opener of how good a DJ can be.
DJ Nu Mark – 21ST APRIL 2012 @ Koko
As well as his dope set using kids toys Nu Mark’s set on this night was straight party. A mix of bangers and surprise Rock & Pop classics which set the place alight.
The Nextmen Boat Party – Every Year!
I have always been a big fan of Brad & Dom’s style. They have been one of the main stays of our parties over the last 10 years and they always go in extra hard on their boat parties.
Mr thing @ J-Dilla Tribute – Feb 2006 @ Cargo
Next year will be the 10th Anniversary of our Dilla tributes and although they are always a highlight of the year Mr Thing’s set at the very first one set the tone for every year after.
?uestlove – 3 HR SET 11th Sept 2010 @ East village
You know that ?uestlove comes with a depth of knowledge that surpasses most in the game. This set was three hours of break to the beat killers that was as entertaining as it was educating.
Just Blaze vs Alchemist – 6th April 2010 @ East Village
These two are a pair of the most talented producers in the game and the first of these sound-clash nights sold out in days (which is always nice) and they tour the place apart with just their own beats.
DJ Spinna – Wonder-Full – 24th JULY 2015 @ Scala
I’d been wanting to do Spinna’s Wonder-Full party since going to one in Berlin years ago. A night of all Stevie Wonder work might be too much for some but the vibe and selection were amazing.
Bobbito 45s – 5th April 2014 @ The Book Club
Bob was one of the first guys I booked and we have gone on to become good friends. He only plays vinyl and this set for our 45 x 45s party was so on point.
Beat Junkies (JROCC / BABU / RHETMATTIC) – 23RD AUG 2012 @ Jazz Café
I have always been a huge fan of these guys so to put them on as a crew was a real treat. It was a great balance of party rocking and turntablism that wowed the place.
ALI SHAHEED MUHAMMAD – 15TH SEPT 2012 @ PLAN B
Tribe have always been my favourite group responsible for my favourite album of all time. They say not to meet your heroes but Ali did not disappoint. A real gent and killer set.
