INTERVIEW: Doctor P (2013)

doctor-p-ear-plug

DJ, prankster, and label head Doctor P wears a lot of hats. Although he is not known (yet) by the mainstream, his following is huge and loyal, as evidenced by a sold out club (on a Thursday) in Nashville, Tennessee.  Originally released on his own Circus records, his recent EP was picked up by legendary dance label Big Beat who brought his sound to the US where it was devoured.  His track “Galaxies & Stars” is a good intro, but you really should dig further in and experience the way his creative mind takes dubstep to places it’s never really been before.

DJ Ron Slomowicz: When you made “Galaxies & Stars,” were you trying to channel Blondie’s “Rapture”?
Doctor P: Yeah, I am a massive Blondie and KRS-One fan. I have always loved what KRS-One did with the song (on “Step into a World”), so I tried to do that and take some of the original and give it my own spin as well. I didn’t get any percentage of that track, Debbie Harry got everything and she wouldn’t back down. We were going back and forth for ages and I finally just let her have it, she wrote the melody so I suppose it’s fine.
