Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) & Nu-Mark (Jurassic 5), 21st April at Koko, London
Soundcrash & The Doctor’s Orders have a pretty tasty lineup this April with a meeting of two giants as Jurassic 5’s Nu-Takes shares the Camden stage with A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammad.
Recent Zulu Nation inductee Nu-Mark’s DJ sets have become infamous for his creativity and ingenuity. As a member of the legendary Jurassic 5 he graced the group with precision production and cutting edge stage routines. Best known for his production on the raw anthem “What’s Golden” such creativity only hinted at the visionary creativity Nu-Mark has explored since Jurassic 5’s breakup in 2006, which is incidentally the last time he has played in the UK. Today Nu-Mark experiments with children’s music toys and constructs full DJ sets around toys most people dispose of by the time their kids are old enough to read.
Sharing the bill with Nu-Mark is none other than A Tribe Called Quest DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad. An integral part of ATCQ’s iconic productions, Ali joined J-Dilla and Q-Tip in the collective The Ummah and later formed Lucy Pearl with Raphael Saadiq. With a resumé like that you’d think one would want to live off the inertia and lazy about, but Ali Shaheed decided to prove that he wasn’t just another Hip-Hop DJ and published his solo album in which he was able to explore more of his music abilities and influences.
Keeping proceedings fresh will be the usual quality selection of DJs you’ve come to expect from both Soundcrash & The Doctor’s Orders, headed by resident and DMC UK Champion Mr Thing, The Doctor’s Orders own Spin Doctor & Chris P Cuts.
