With few tunes being 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 we are ecstatic to have one of their three members in the shape of Ali Shaheed Muhammad join us for an Exclusive DJ set tonight. Queens Natives A Tribe Called Quest came to reshape the Hip-Hop scene with the release of their classic five albums that all pushed the soulful Jazz drenched sounds that became a trademark not only of their sound but also 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’. Having recently reformed to tour and with a documentary on the band due to be released shortly Tribe are now back on top of the game where they belong.
As well his work with Tribe Ali was a founding member of the production outfit The Ummah, alongside Q-Tip and J-Dilla, which produced not only for Tribe but also Busta Rhymes, D’Angelo and Janet Jackson. He then went on to show and 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.
