Doctor P torn into the Dubstep scene with ‘Sweet Shop’ in 2009. This jump up banger was released on Circus Records, which is the record label that Doctor P is the co-founder of, along with Flux Pavilion, DJ Swan-E and Earl Falconer.
Doctor P also known as Shaun Brockhurst produces some of the filthiest Dubstep around and on July 6th he’ll be jumping on the decks at Nass Festival. TID managed to get a few words from him, to find out what he’s been up to.
Where are you right now and what have you been up to?
Right now I’m at home, but for the last few months I’ve been traveling constantly!
Is there anything you know now that you wished you’d known at the start of your music career?
I wish somebody had told me that there are no rules in music! I spent the first few years of my musical career trying to learn all the rules of music production; I think it took me about 5 years to figure out that there actually aren’t any rules.
What’s your top tip for aspiring DJ/producers, maybe there’s something you were told and benefited form?
I was once given a piece of advice, which stuck with me. Stick to your guns and eventually musical trends will come round to you. If you constantly chase what is popular you will never be there first.
Who’s hot in your headphones at the moment, anyone we should be listening out for?
We have just signed a track from Figure - I am quite into his stuff at the moment and I can’t get enough of brown & gammon!
Have you ever been to Nass before? What are you looking forward to?
I haven’t been to Nass before, but I am definitely looking forward to it. I rarely get to perform in that part of the UK. Plus it’s always interesting to see some extreme sports in real life!
Nass festival also includes extreme sports, what’s the most extreme thing that you have ever done?
Possibly when I bungee jumped naked out of a speeding train.
Will you be partaking in any skating or riding?
I used to snowboard when I was a teenager.... so who knows! Maybe I’ll wait until after my set, I don’t want to be up on stage with a broken leg.
We all know festivals get pretty messy, what are your must haves when attending a festival?
Take lots of money, things at festivals are expensive. Whenever I’ve been to festivals in the past I always seem to end up spending all my money on the first day!
What can we expect from you in 2012?
I plan to continue releasing music and touring the world! I have a couple of singles due out soon, so keep your eye out for them!
A big thanks to Shaun, you can catch him at Nass Festival between the 6th - 8th of July at Royal Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet.
