New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Few names in music carry quite as much kudos of that of our headline DJ Questlove. He has worked with such a phenomenal array of talent while always leaving his own distinctive mark on each one. The list reads like a who's who of modern Hip-Hop & Soul; Jay-Z, Al Green, Erykah Badu, J-Dilla, Common, Joss Stone
& De La Soul
to name just a handful. All this before we mention The Roots
who now hold down their day job at house band for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
As a drummer he is a funky metronome that has brought to life so many tracks originally created through samples, drum machines and computers. Just check out his leadership of the ever morphing group of musicians that calls itself the "Illadelphonics" on Jay-Z's unplugged album (Roc-A-Fella) and Madison Square
performance in "Fade To Black" (Paramount) or at "Dave Chapelle's Block Party" (Rogue Pictures) for an example of this. As a producer, both on his own and as part of the Soulquarians alongside J-Dilla, Q-Tip & Ali Shaheed Muhammad, his musical knowledge and understanding has seen him bring the classic Al Green
sound bang up to date on "Lay It Down
" (Blue Note) as well as bring the very best out of performers like D'Angelo & A Tribe Called Quest.
He'll be making the most of all of these phenomenal attributes as he blesses The Doctor's Orders crowd to his first London DJ set in over 4 years. With only 400 tickets available this is sure to be another packed house so grab your ticket now and get there early to get your spot on the dance-floor.
