The Doctor’s Orders’ Hip-Hop vs RnB has been going from strength to strength in the last 2 years and since the move to The Garage has kicked things up another gear. For this very special party we open up the second room to celebrate the release of J Dilla’s ‘The Diary’ while the main room sees the best resident line up in London rock the best Hip-Hop & RnB bangers.

Going back to back in the Hip-Hop vs RnB challenge each month we have Kiss FM’s king of Hip-Hop, Shortee Blitz alongside BBC 1xtra’s voice of RnB CJ Beatz and one of the most in demand DJs in the city the incredible CWD. Warming things up month on month with his incredible selection of floor fillers is The Doctor’s Orders resident Russ Ryan.

To celebrate the long awaited official release of J Dilla’s vocal album ‘The Diary’, originally recorded for MCA in 2002 we have a Mr Thing, Eric Lau, Kidkanevil & Spin Doctor spinning Dilla all night in room two. Featuring production from Pete Rock, Madlib, Nottz, Hi Tek, Karriem Riggins and of course Dilla himself this album, now released on Nas’s Mass Appeal label, is a highwater mark in the short career of the late great James Yancey.
