SUB-human has recently released an outstanding bootleg of Doctor P's “Tetris,” and it's doing the rounds something crazy. To mark its release, we caught up with the producer to find out his Musical Guilty Pleasures…
1) Ed Rush & Optical – “Bacteria” (Pendulum Remix)
I remember streaming Innovation In The Sun off BBC 1Xtra as a kid and heard this track. I was completely blown away by how alien the bass sounds were and have been fascinated with “out of this world” sound design ever since.
2) Portishead – “The Rip”
I have so much love for this band and their unbridled pursuit of personal perfection. There is so much dissonance and asynchronous rhythms throughout the whole album and to me, it’s a masterpiece.
3) Noisia – “Breeze Block Sample Sex”
I don’t believe Noisia ever released this officially, it was some radio show contest where they had to make a song in a short period of time using some samples. It’s been a favourite for mine for years, and Noisia are one of my all time great inspirations, both creatively and in their mix-down expertise.
4) Flying Lotus – “Camel”
The whole album is phenomenal. It really set the standard for sonic perfection even in in- box audio production. There’s such warmth and character and it takes you on a journey even as an instrumental.
5) Fatboy Slim – “Ya Mama”
It was a hard toss up between this and The Prodigy’s – “Smack My Bitch Up.” It's absolutely classic track that I heard when I was very young. I didn’t know anything about production back then but the energy speaks for itself and is something I aspire to recreate in anything I do.
Thanks for having me! <3
