Doctor's Orders - New Year's Eve Party

Looking for somewhere to get crunk on the last day of the year? I'll be here holding down the upstairs room alongside Serocee at The Big Chill House, Kings Cross...

The Doctor’s Orders NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY In association with Dephect


MR THING vs HARRY LOVE (4 deck set)
Hosted by Iron Braydz

Room 2:



9pm - 5am Saturday 31st December 2011
@ Big Chill House, 257-259 Pentonville Road, London N1
(Kings Cross Tube)

Buy Tickets: £15 Early Bird (Only 50 Available), then £20 in advance...


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 for reservation details.
