On Thursday 26th January, The Doctor’s Orders in association with Dephect, bless us with UK appearances by not one but two artists who have managed to make a huge impression on the underground scene, without denting the consciousness of the mainstream. Stones Throw Record’s MED will be hitting the stage at Cargo, London along with the likes of Detroit’s super producer Black Milk - who will be treating fans to an intimate DJ set in true hip hop style!
West cost hero MED has an impressive stable of producers behind him. Having made his debut with Madlib produced Lootpack, he has blessed beats from J-Dilla, Just Blaze and Oh No. It is little wonder considering the man’s stunning breathe control and his no holds barred wordplay. His latest full length album ‘Classic’ (Stones Throw) is just that, a bonafide underground classic.
Black Milk is one of the most prolific producers in the game right now. With a sound that is distinctly his own but recognisably the sound of Detroit at the same time, he joins the event for a very rare DJ set. Having blown up stages for The Doctor’s Orders performing solo and as one third of Random Axe, most would share the same excitement to welcome Black Milk behind the decks, for a set not only of his own productions but a selection of tunes that have inspired him over the years.
This opportunity to see and hear these two acts, rock a London stage together is not to be missed and if their presence was not enough for you - then London’s own Piff Gang will be getting the stage warmed up with their witty takes on life in the capital, while Spin Doctor & Chris P Cuts, set the mood on the decks.
Doors open at 7pm and the event comes to a close at 11pm. For further information, visit The Doctors Orders official site, by clicking HERE.
