Aboard The Golden Flame
Departs & Returns Temple Pier (Embankment, London, WC2R 2PN)
Doctor’s Orders celebrates bringing six years of hosting London’s finest Hip Hop parties with a line-up guaranteed to rock the boat its due to take place on Saturday, July 2.
The lucky ticket holders will be treated to DJ sets from Doctor’s Orders owner Spin Doctor, DJ Excalibah, The Last Skeptik and special guest by way of Boston via NYC – Statik Selektah.
The spacious duel levelled Golden Flame boat will be the venue for this unique commemoration that will see all attendees receive a free double disk mix CD.
Statik Selektah has become synonymous with the East Coast Hip Hop scene having released an avalanche of albums and mix-tapes in the past ten years as well as hosting his own weekly radio show on Eminem’s Shade 45 XM/Sirus Radio Station. His relentless work ethic has reaped dividends with the launch of his own independent record label Show Off Records. During this time he’s produced and released his own solo ventures as well as a number of collaborative albums/EP’s with rappers such as Freeway, Termanology, Saigon and most recently Freddie Gibbs and Freddie Foxx.
Statik bucked a trend that has plagued modern Hip Hop by consistently producing quality and quantity instead of flooding the market with mediocre music. This reputation has made him the go to man for modern boom-bap bangers. Much like his main influence – DJ Premier, Selektah’s production technique is an upgrade on what made early to mid-’90s east coast Hip Hop so special with neck snapping beats, chopped up funk/soul/jazz samples and scratched in choruses making an intoxicating sonic brew that has brought the best out of his rapping collaborators.
With a line-up this star-studded playing the best Hip Hop in a venue far removed from your usual sweaty club, you will be a fool to miss out on one of the best parties London has to offer this summer. Be quick to snap up a ticket as only 100 remain at time of writing.
