An introduction to Doctor P
Any true fan of electronic music should instantly recognize Doctor P as one of the original godfathers of modern bass-driven music. A true music lover at heart, Doctor P, aka Shaun Brockhurst, has had an intense love of music since he was just a teenager jamming with his friends on drums and guitar. Doctor P is what you might label as a triple threat as his talent can be found in the roles he effortlessly balances as a musician, producer, and DJ’s He also founded Circus Records with long time friend Flux Pavilion.
Shaun began to professionally create tracks in 2007, predominantly Drum and Bass but was always experimenting across all styles. He had some early releases signed up but things didn1t get serious until he formed Slum Dogz with DJ Swan E and signed to Maximum Boost.
Immersed in experimenting with new sounds Shaun fell for the then emerging sub-genre of more energetic bass-driven dubstep, with tracks like Rusko’s ‘Cockney Thug’. He was inspired to try his hand at making a few dubstep tunes in the same vein, and created the joyous and body-popping ‘Gargoyle’, shortly followed by the blindsiding ‘Badman Sound’ (Dub Police) which were quickly picked up by Rusko and other DJs. To reflect his new sound, Shaun 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 bass music history and inspire a whole new generation of electronic fans. ‘Sweet Shop’ quickly became a staple part of just about every DJ1s set, from junglist to house DJ, it became an anthem for every floor. The track was one of the first releases on Circus and helped make it one of the forging labels of EDM.
Since then Doctor P and Flux Pavilion have continued to grow Circus and their own careers. Doctor P has worked with Method Man, Dillon Francis, Adam F, Ce’Cile, P Money and remixed for Plan B, Example, Datsik, Dan le Sac vs Scrubius Pip and Blame amongst others.
