JUST BLAZE VS THE ALCHEMIST x SOUNDCLASH

The Doctor’s Orders have just announced a major double date in May with a head to head soundclash between two of hip hop’s biggest producers – Just Blaze and The Alchemist. This show took place last year at an East London location and for those that don’t know, the tickets flew off the shelf in record time, leaving many disappointed people out in the cold, begging for a place on the guestlist (and before you ask there isn’t one)!

So we’re very excited that they’re taking over the venue on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th May!

As an in house producer with Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella records Just Blaze has made waves producing instant classics for Kanye West, Cam’ron, Freeway, Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel and of course the man himself Jay-Z who has featured Just Blaze beats on 6 of his last 7 albums, all of which have gone platinum. And it would be wrong to not mention the incredible soundscapes he has created for Jay Electronica click here for a listen.

Having got his start in the production game under the wing of DJ Premier and DJ Muggs, The Alchemist  has made a name for himself for rough Boom Bap style hits. Through his work on albums for underground favourites Dilated Peoples (listen here) and Defari he came to the attention of Mobb Deep who chose two beats to feature on the classic Murda Muzik. His resume now reads like a who’s who of hip hop including work with Nas, Ghostface, Lil-Wayne, Emimen (for who The Alchemist is tour DJ), Big Pun, Fat Joe and Raekwon.

This is going to be big – here’s a taste of what’s to come:

BUMP LAUNCH PARTY x FRIDAYS AT PLAN B

Remember the days when going out used to be fun? Music you knew, people you liked, that whole thing? These days it feels like the only choice for a night out is either an over priced West End club (complete with big scary bouncers and orange skinned WAGs), or that slightly pretentious thing the kids with funny hair do in East London. What happened to getting your drink on at your local spot and skanking out to your favourite tunes?

Well, we are bringing the fun back to South London, with our new weekly jam – BUMP! From the illest urban sounds, to proper old school music. From hip hop and R&B, to dancehall and dubstep, even a bit of house and garage!

Every week we will be doing something a bit different, with some of London’s best new artists, producers and DJs passing through over the coming weeks and months.

To start things off with a bump, we have invited the amazing Sophy Robson (Vogue Magazine) to do free nails for the girls (10pm to 12am) every Friday for the first month. We will also have loads of giveaways, surprise PAs and champagne raffles every week, because we’re nice like that.

9PM – 4AM / FREE BEFORE 10PM, £5 AFTER / FACEBOOK GROUP

JAMES BLAKE x DEBUT LIVE SHOW

Any discerning music fan couldn’t have missed the meteoric rise of post dubstep pioneer James Blake. The South London resident was responsible for some of the most forward thinking productions last year through trailblazing imprints such as R & S Records and Hessle Audio.

His highly anticipated album drops in February and to support the release James has prepared a full live band. Showcased will be his jazz, electronic and soul influences not to mention a stunning tenor voice, with its first unveiling here at Plan B on Friday 14th January.

As you can imagine this event has received some serious hype and has completely sold out, although there will be limited tickets on the door for £15. This is a live show so the doors will be opening earlier than usual at 8pm.

ON THE REAL x EXTENDED PLAYERS XMAS PARTY

The best thing about Xmas is all of the parties (+ all of the things your meant to say!). Not sure how it’s happened but suddenly it’s December, the snow is hitting hard and we have a hefty month of party pushing ahead. Our biggest hip hop party of the festive season, comes courtesy of The Doctor’s Orders and their monthly showdown – On The Real, with an Extended Players special on Friday 10th December.

The Extended Players AKA Mr Thing, MK and  Harry Love (and Shortee Blitz who is not around for this one) are a force to be reckoned with and they will be going at it crazy style with a rare six turntable, four hour set. The Extended Players are without a doubt one of the best (and most consistent) teams of turntablists out there.

In true Xmas spirit The Doctor’s Orders are offering up a wealth of free mixes and podcasts – click on the magic record case below for a taste of MK, Mr Thing and Spin Doctor…

…and to finish off the post, here is Harry Love in his kitchen having a scratch.
