    Bank holiday Sunday 5th May just got a whole load more interesting with a heavy-duty line-up of serious turntable talent gathering at KOKO! Flying in from the states for an exclusive set will be A Tribe Called Quest’s DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Beat Junkie J Rocc for two rare DJ sets. They are joining forces with the UK’s own DJ Yoda playing a classic Hip-hop AV set, DJ Vadim and UK DMC Champ and guaranteed party starter Mr Thing. To top it off The Last Skeptik will take to the stage to get things started in the best possible way. Now this is a party.

    Flying in exclusively for this show is Ali Shaheed Muhammad. An integral part of ATCQ’s iconic productions, Ali joined J-Dilla and Q-Tip in the collective The Ummah after ATCQ’s breakup and then later formed Lucy Pearl with Raphael Saadiq. Imagine how good of a DJ you must be to have a resume like that!

    One of the original turntablists, J. Rocc founded the Beat Junkies in 1992. They became a seminal force in the rise turntablism and DJing as a whole. In addition to numerous mixtapes and his own production for Stones Throw releases, J. Rocc has been the DJ for Madlib’s live shows since the early 2000′s, was the 3rd member of Jaylib (Madlib & J Dilla) during the group’s live events. Selectors don’t get much more respected than this. 

    One of ‘The 10 DJs you must see before you die’ (Q magazine); ‘One of the Top Three DJs in the World’ (HHC); the world’s principal AV artist; part dance-floor destroying selector, part turntablist supreme DJ Yoda has been amazing audiences world-wide with his Audiovisual sets. Tonight he plays an exclusive classic Hip-hop set reminiscent of the first mixtapes that first brought him to the attention of the public.
    Joining us for the evening is The Doctor’s Orders favourite, USSR born producer DJ Vadim. He has been busy touring the globe for years and is an expert in making rooms full of people jump about like there’s no tomorrow. Catch him hyping the crowd with his eclectic mix of reggae, soul, electronica, grime, hip-hop and of course his own legendary productions to top off this mega night!

    Former Scratch Perverts member and DMC Scratch Champion Mr Thing will be doing his thing on the night, playing all your favourite hip-hop and breaks: the flavour of choice from the prolific London DJ. Thing ‘s world-class reputation has seen him touring and performing with the likes of the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff, Marley Marl, Beastie Boys, DJ Premier or Slum Village. You know he’ll smash it.

    The Last Skeptik has come a long way from building his first beats whilst skipping classes at school. From releasing his first 12” single in 2004 featuring Sway, he has been steadily gaining fans with his production wizardry. Fast forward to 2013 and The Last Skeptik has released two albums, the first being with rapper Rewd Adams, and the second, a highly anticipated instrumental project for BBE Records. Add to that residencies at Livin Proof and Knew Knowledge and a blinding showcase SXSW and U.S tour, the infamous KOKO stage could not be shared with anyone else…
    You know it makes sense.
