GIG: John Robinson @ Doctor’s Orders 33

John Robinson @ Doctor's Orders 33

As mentioned on this site back in August, John Robinson was indeed at Herbal in London for Doctor’s Orders 33 this past Friday evening. It was a good night in Shoreditch, London where Spin Doctor boomed out some classic hip-hop tracks, Lowkey gave a lyrical showcase and the main-man John Robinson reminded us all why he’s still one of the best emcees out there. If you weren’t there… you missed out big-style!

Lowkey at Doctor's Orders 33

After some top choice DJing from the likes of Harry Love and Spin Doctor, Lowkey went on after midnight and hyped up the crowd with some interactive lyrical games and a few tracks, mainly with a political edge, including the new track We Don’t Want Them, produced by The Last Skeptik. It’s a track released in association with Love Music Hate Racism as a response to the fascist British National Party and their recent growth in the face of the recession. Then at about 2am John Robinson hit the stage. He played for a solid hour, getting the crowd involved regularly and he worked through from old material right up until brand-new tracks made with J Rawls. The man is as sharp live as he is on record! I also shot six small videos and uploaded them to the new Jus Like Music YouTube channel, here’s one…

Was a great evening hosted by Spin Doctor and I felt genuinely privileged to see John Robinson perform live. If you ever get the chance to see him live, make sure you do catch him! He’s a funny guy indeed and a true professional too. The next Doctor’s Orders will be number 34 and will see the legendary CL Smooth come to London with support from UK hip-hop emcee Micall Parknsun – that’s on 2nd October, so get your tickets booked!
