To mark one year of the best hip-hop party in Brighton and the release of the incredible Suite For Ma Dukes, we bring you this special Detroit laced throwdown! is probably the most gifted to MC’s to have come out of Detroit and considering the wealth of talent from the city that is saying something. Having made a name for himself on he city’s battle scene he began work with local legends such as DJ Houseshoes & Waajeed as well as becoming part of several local groups; The Breakfast Club alongside Dwele & Big Tone and later 925 Colony with Nick Speed and Magestik Legend. Having met J-Dilla, then known as Jay Dee, through his collaborations with Waajeed he was invited to feature on the brilliant “Welcome To Detroit” and then later to become an official member of Slum Village while working alongside Baatin on “Fantastic Vol.2”. With an unparalleled versatility of delivery and intricate wordplay Elzhi has gained armies of fans all over the world the London battalion of which will be out in force tonight.

When it comes to celebrating the life and work of James “J-Dilla” Yancey in London & Brighton none do it harder or better than The Doctor’s Orders. Tonight they mark the release of the incredible “Suite For Ma Dukes” with performance from three Dilla associates who will be performing not only work they made with him but also other bangers from their catalogues.


Phat Kat was the surprise package of The Doctor’s Orders 4th Birthday at Herbal where he blew the crowd apart with his phenomenal stage presence and no holds barred delivery. We have been looking forward to welcoming him back since and the time is nigh. He started his career as a member of 1st Down alongside Jay Dee whom he continued to collaborate with throughout his career. Set to perform the slamming “Cold Steel” as well as other brilliant tracks from “Carte Blanche” and beyond this man has to be seen & heard to be believed.

DJ Dez has been on The Doctor’s Orders wish list for a good while now. Both under his guise as Slum Village’s DJ Dez and as his producer alter ego Andres he is a phenomenal talent perfectly suited to the open minded, fun loving crowd that pack out The Doctor’s Order’s events every time.

Spin Doctor
is the driving force behind the phenomenal success of The Doctor’s Orders and while not planning domination of the UK’s party scene is most at ease behind a set of decks. The early influence of his 5 older brothers and sisters record collections developed into an obsession with soul tinged music of all styles which he uses to this day when treating dance-floors to his fearless sets of party platters.

Rusty Ryan will be throwing down killer OG soul breaks to brand new bangers to mark the 1st anniversary of Brighton’s finest Hip Hop party. Spinning everything from Stevie Wonder to 9th Wonder, Rusty’s soul drenched sounds will take the dance floor to boiling point!


Beyond The Clouds w/ Lil Louis, Pepe Bradock + more – November 13th

Corsica Studios is extremely proud to present Beyond The Clouds, a joint project brought to you by Süd Electronic, Bodyhammer and TOTHEBONE. Beyond The Clouds is a series of fantasy house nights featuring line-ups we’ve dreamed of for years and the first party features extended sets from two true house originals – Chicago’s Lil’ Louis and Paris’ Pepe Bradock.

Timeless hit maker, fierce DJ and the man behind the most famous orgasm in house history, Lil’ Louis plays his music the way it’s supposed to be played – house, disco and techno mixed hard and fast for your dancing pleasure. When the night is right and his sets aren’t being recorded – and this one won’t be – Louis has a reputation for throwing all manner of old, unreleased material into his DJ sets. Be sure you’re there to hear it. 

Pepe Bradock is responsible for some of the wildest, most creative house records of the last decade.  In an increasingly formalised genre, he remains a dependably surprising presence. Tracks like “Deep Burnt’, ‘Life’, ‘4’ and ‘The Path Of Most Resistance’ and remixes for the likes of Iz & Diz, Blaze and Charles Webster have an originality which never alienates their dancers – a combination Pepe also brings to his DJ sets. They’ll be taking charge of one room each, with hometown support from Lakuti, Joe Hart, Rik Moran and Charlie & Dave TTB.
