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 DJŠ He also founded Circus Records with long time friend
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 ŒCockney Thug¹. He was inspired to try his hand at making a
few dubstep tunes in the same vein, and created the joyous and
body-popping ŒGargoyle¹, shortly followed by the blindsiding ŒBadman
Sound¹ (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 ŒSweet Shop¹ 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. ŒSweet Shop¹ 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, Ce¹Cile, P Money and remixed for Plan B, Example, Datsik, Dan le
Sac vs Scrubius Pip and Blame amongst others.
