Doctor P aka Shaun Brockhurst spent many of his teen years jamming with friends, drumming and playing guitar. Intrigued by high-energy beats, his early sounds were primarily dance-based with a drum and bass flavour. Immersed in experimenting with new sounds Shaun noticed an emerging sub-genre of more energetic bass-driven dubstep. He was inspired to try his hand at making a few dubstep tunes, to reflect his new sound, Shaun changed his alias and became Doctor P.
When he posted his new track ‘Sweet Shop’ on his MySpace to test for interest little was Doctor P to know that this was to change the course of dubstep history and encourage a whole new generation of dubstep fans. Tinkling on the ivories and combining some chords with a vocal sample to create an old-skool house beat, Shaun created an intro that lulls the listener into a false sense of security before knocking them sideways with a jaw-dropping drop into a deep bassline complemented by a screeching synth. ‘Sweet Shop’ quickly became a staple part of just about every Dubstep DJ’s set.
With the recognition his work earned him the phenomenon of ‘Doctor P’ grew exponentially as he started DJing globally, and remixing for respected artists such as Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Example and Plan B.
Watch out for Doctor P’s relentless flow of original tracks and remixes in both the Dubstep and Drum & Bass scenes, and non-stop touring! $15
