The 7th February 2016 can’t come quick enough, as The Doctors Orders will be celebrating the 10th Anniversary “J Dilla Tribute” which lands on what would have been the late, great producers birthday. THe Doctors Orders will once again showcase a range of guest DJ’s and MC’s including the likes of Maseo (De La Soul), Illa J (J Dilla’s brother) and Phat Kat. Resident DJ’s Shortee Blitz, Mr Thing and Spin Doctor will be performing, along with an unconfirmed special guest. The Doctors Orders will also be selling an exclusive t-short at the event which will be held at Scala (tickets above). You can also watch one of my favourite J Dilla tracks (So Far to Go) on the YouTube player below.
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. The Doctors Orders are preparing for Scala on the 23rd of October (hit the link above for details and tickets) with arguably their biggest DJ lineup to date! 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.
In celebration of promoting for 10 years, The Doctors Orders have announced another huge party with potentially, their biggest DJ set to date.

I want to say a huge congratulations to Rod (aka Spin Doctor) and the team at The Doctors Orders for reaching their 10 year anniversary. We passed ours last September and not many UK labels/promoters/websites achieve that feat.

Once again The Doctor’s Orders own Spin Doctor will also be hosting the ever popular Hip-Hop Pub Quiz for what is now the 6th time. It has been a runaway success since it’s first installment in July 2009. The idea is simple really, to run a pub quiz with the typical kinds of rounds you would expect (film, sports, picture etc etc) but just about Hip-Hop. The venue is Big Chilli House in North London, and it’s free entry for people attending. However tickets are £2.00 per player and teams are limited to six players. You can view the promotional flyer for The Doctors Orders – Hip Hop Pub Quiz and the website link above.
Here is a brand new track from Yungun titled “The Good Ones” which is a tribute to two Hip-Hop legelds (Big L and J Dilla) who both passed away in February. As Yungun quotes RZA “It’s always the good ones that have to die” Yungun is in no way using this song for promotional purposes, but only as a tribute to two Hip-Hop pioneers who shaped the industry for the better. Yungun is performing at the J Dilla foundation charity event on Sunday 6th Feb “J Dilla Changed My Life” which is presented by The Doctors Orders in Kings Cross, London. You can view the artwork and listen to Yungun – The Good Ones on the audio player below.
