ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: DOCTOR P
Shaun Brockhurst, better known as Doctor P, is an English dubstep producer and DJ from Towcester, Northamptonshire. He is a co-founder of Circus Records alongside Flux Pavilion, DJ Swan-E, and Earl Falconer. Doctor P and Flux Pavilion have been long-time friends, and they have an abundance of releases together. Brockhurst also releases drum and bass music under multiple aliases, including Sounds Destructive, Slum Dogz, and DJ Picto. Picto was an old nickname of Brockhurst’s, which is where the ‘P’ in Doctor P originates from. Doctor P has been steadily releasing music under the Circus Records label since 2009. He also has an impressive arsenal of remixes under his belt for big names such as Britney Spears, Zomboy, Dillon Francis, and 12th Planet. Doctor P’s ability to incorporate both high-energy D&B and hard-hitting dubstep into his sets is sure to set the night on fire at Opera Nightclub on June 7th!
5 SONGS TO LISTEN TO
Flying Spaghetti Monster
This song wastes no time getting right into it. The pulse of “Flying Spaghetti Monster” stays true while the rest of the tune is unpredictable yet catchy. This is probably Doctor P’s most well-known song to date.
The intro to this song is so climactic that it hooks listeners in within seconds. The lyrics and short and sweet, which is perfect for shouting out each time the beat drops. This song is a certified banger.
The sirens at the beginning of this tune already let you know that some heat is on the way – and who wouldn’t love a song dedicated to something as delicious as pizza? The sound variation within “Pizza!” is diverse, hitting both low and grimy sounds as well as crisp and meticulous notes.
Snakes and Ladders
The bass at the beginning of this banger is asinine. The intro starts off with a steady decline, almost like you’re actually going down a ladder. Each drop somehow builds into the next, leaving you begging for the next beat.
Party Drink Smoke
This song is actually by both Doctor P as well as Flux Pavilion. The slow intro bass line builds in Jarren Benton’s rapping. This is one of Doctor P’s more riddim-based tunes, which just goes to show how versatile of an artist Doctor P is.
