Few names in music carry quite as much kudos of that of our headline DJ ?uestlove. There are few musicians, producers or DJs that can claim to have worked with such a phenomenal array of talent as this Philadelphia native while still leaving his own distinctive mark on each one. The list reads like a who’s who of modern Hip Hop & Soul; Jay-Z, Al Green, Erykah Badu, J-Dilla, Common, Joss Stones & De La Soul to name just a handful. All this before we even mention the fact that he is the founding member & driving force of the world’s most respected live Hip Hop band. [Check our review of their latest album, How I Got Over]
As a drummer he is a funky metronome that has brought to life so many incredible tracks that had originally been created through samples, drum machines and computers. Just check out his leadership of the ever morphing group of musicians that calls itself the “Illadelphonics” on Jay-Z’s unplugged album (Roc-A-Fella) and Madison Square performance in “Fade To Black” (Paramount) or at “Dave Chapelle’s Block Party” (Rogue Pictures) for an example of this. As a producer, both on his own and as part of the Soulquarians alongside J-Dilla, Q-Tip & Ali Shaheed Muhammad, his musical knowledge and understanding has seen him bring the classic Al Green sound bang up to date on “Lay It Down” (Blue Note) as well as get the very best out of performers like D’Angelo & A Tribe Called Quest.
He will be making the most of all of these phenomenal attributes as he blesses The Doctor’s Orders crowd to his only London DJ set of the year which will weave a beautiful musical web between current Hip-Hop sounds, ’70s Funk, ’80s Soul & beyond to wherever this musical colossus decides to go. When dealing with a man with as much musical knowledge, power & understanding as Amir ?uestlove Thompson there is only one thing to do; find your spot on the dance-floor and get ready for this incredible three hour set, his only London DJ gig of the year.
As ever The Doctor’s Orders have lined up an incredible cast of support DJs to help build the vibe and make sure that every minute of the night and inch of the venue are treated to a great sounds.
Keep your eyes peeled for your chance to win a pair of tickets next week!
