The Four Owls ft.Jam Baxter - 'Life In The Balance' video

Another video from The Four Owls album 'Nature's Greatest Mystery', on High Focus Records. This one features Jam Baxter and some great time lapse action showing the growth of a plant called Marijuana? Never heard of it to be honest... Anyway, here's 'Life In The Balance'.

The Quaranteam EP


And yet more freeness for the festive season, an all star East London super crew know as The Quaranteam, made up of Loudmouth Melvin, Chris Mentalist, Pyro Barz, K-Nite13 & Skillit. Having dished out a fair few free releases on the solo tip, each member of Quaranteam is more than capable of holding their own. Lets hope a full album is in the works, as this 8 tracker is kinda fresh. Hit the link above for the download...

///

The Doctor’s Orders, The Big Chill House and Dephect are over the moon to announce the very first New Year’s Eve party in London by “the kings of the capital’s Hip-Hop scene” (Time Out).

As you would expect from any party The Doctor’s Orders put on, Spin Doctor has hand picked a phenomenal line up of DJs to join him across both floors of this incredible venue to see you shaking that ass all the way through into 2012.

Ask any Hip-Hop head in the country, and plenty more abroad, who their favourite homegrown DJ is you will be met with one answer, Mr Thing. As one of The Doctor’s Orders residents at our monthly On The Real he tears up the dance-floor every time. With an impeccable history of DJ battles, production and compilations for BBE there is little wonder he is the name on everyone’s lips.

Tonight he goes head to head in a 4 deck show down with the one of the few men to match his talents, one of his best mates and good friend of The Doctor’s Orders the incomparable Harry Love. Ever since seeing a pre-teen DJ, then called Harry-O, standing on a crate to reach the decks and rock a West London house party many moons ago Spin Doctor has been a huge fan of the man now known as Harry Love. With incredible production skills and an ability to move a crowd these huge talents will not want to be outshone. You are certainly in for a night to remember!

Making sure that things are warmed up to boiling point in the main room is another On The Real resident Chris P Cuts and fan’s favourite Kidkanevil. Both are well versed in the traditions and skills of Hip-Hop but are never scared to push the envelope so you can be guaranteed a good measure of unexpected pleasures from Soul to Grime alongside your prescribed dose of Hip-Hop bangers.

On mic duties making sure you do not miss the big count down is our host and one of the friendliest faces in London Hip-Hop Iron Braydz while keeping the winter chills away with a soundtrack of Reggae and Dancehall all night in Room 2’s are Suspect Packages’ own Disorda & Serocee.

Get ready for a real Hip-Hop party and toast your good health as you see in 2012 with The Doctor’s Orders.

--------------------------------------------------------

Vip room available for 50 person booking at cost of £3000 including entry and champagne reception. Please contact grace.w@bigchill.net for reservation details.
