The Doctor’s Orders in association with Dephect present

ON THE REAL
Jumping Jack Frost (exclusive Hip-Hop set / V Recordings)
& Stalley Live

Plus Residents
Spin Doctor
Mr Thing
Chris P Cuts & host MC Prankster

London’s monthly real Hip-Hop party is back!

As ever The Doctor’s Orders like to keep you on your toes and we do that tonight not only by inviting a Drum & Bass legend to spin an exclusive Hip-Hop set but also by bringing you one of the hottest MCs to be coming out of the US right now.

Jumping Jack Frost is without a doubt one of the most influential names in D&B. Having started life as Reggae, Funk, Soul & Hip-Hop DJ back in the day before he got swept up in the Acid House movement of the mid 80’s following that into Hardcore and then Drum & Bass. Alongside his existing DJ partner Brain Gee he set up V Recordings which specialised in the Jazzier Soulful and dare we say it more Hip-Hop influenced side of D&B with releases from luminaries such as Roni Size, Krust, Dillinga and many more. Tonight the man joins us for our final On The Real party of the year to go back to his roots as he spins an exclusive Hip-Hop set for our fun loving crowd.

Performing live on the night we have one of the most exciting MC’s to emerge in the last couple of year Stalley. When someone has the likes of Rick Ross & Dame Dash in their corner you know they have to be paid attention. This Ohio native came to many people’s attention when his ‘Born To Win’ track was used in a Nike promo (http://tinyurl.com/cve272s) but with two mixtapes, including the brilliant ‘Lincoln Way Nights’ (http://tinyurl.com/44qos4p) and an now an album on its way with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group it is not long before Stalley is the name on everyone’s lips. With a sound drenched in the soulful breaks of the golden era and a style uniquely his own he is the perfect match for The Doctor’s Orders dedicated heads.
