Info & Tickets - www.thedoctorsorders.com

From Sacramento, California, this alternative Hip-Hop duo are sure to impress with acrobatic rhyming displays and an eclectic range of classic feel-good beats. Made up of tounge-twisting lyricist ‘Gift of Gab’ and sophisticated producer Chief Xcel they have even made a fan of Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe who recited their ‘Alphabet Aerobics’ live on US TV.

Hitting the scene just at the turn of the millennium Blackalicious represent a landmark turning point in Hip-Hop as the ‘golden age’ supposedly faded away to have a whole new brand of commercial rap music take it’s place. The duo maintain everything that was good about the 90s, with positive, uplifting messages and a focus on lyrical technique, while also developing a contemporary sound, influenced by jazz, funk and neo-soul. Well known for his out-of-this world rapping ability, Gift of Gab captivates and impresses his audience with multisyllabic, internal-rhyme-heavy feats of lyrical skill, while Chief Xcel draws from an endlessly deep range of sounds to create breathtaking, sonically varied instrumentals.

Their list of collaborations reflects the duo’s cross-genre innovations, having worked with a multitude of artists such as ?uestlove, DJ Shadow, Gil Scott-Heron, Zack Le Rocha and Lyrics Born. Their classic album ‘Blazing Arrow’ (2002) perfectly showcases the development of their sound and is a model hip-hop album for the 21st century.

Despite the vainglory of much modern hip-hop, the last thing Blackalicious are focused on is image. Many may not even know what the duo look like, as they do not feature on any of their album covers, instead priding themselves on the quality of their sound; the sincerity of the lyrics and the richness of the beats. That said, do not expect a minimalist performance from Gift of Gab and Chief Xcel, who will make The Jazz Café come to life with a dynamic performance that’ll ensure you never forget their faces or their sound.
