Introducing: Dr SPACE

Introducing: Dr SPACE

Get to know Dr SPACE and two heaving new tunes from the man himself.

Earlier in the year we premiered THIS slamming remix from Dr SPACE of What So Not and Dillon Francis's Arrows, and after a quiet few months plugged away in the studi, the WA-based producer/DJ has returned with two huge tunes in a week. And rather than just chuck 'em up in a blog post, we thought why not help you, humble Pilerats reader, get to know him a little better. Read up below, and get around super fresh new tracks I WANT YOU TO STAY and SICKS SICKS SICKS:

Tell us about about yourself?

I have been playing tunes in Perth for almost a good 10 years now alongside people like Porter Robinson, Borgore, Skream, 16bit, Bring Me The Horizon and Nero. And everyone else under the sun. I’m 27. I'll also hold on to the fact that I beat ShockOne as best dubstep DJ in the Perth Dance Music Awards in 2011 for the rest of my life.

What kinda tunes we talkin’?

It started off as a pretty broad spectrum of sounds and genres but it still always gravitates towards a dubstep/trap/drum'n'bass kind of region.

Production process:

It's when I’m insanely stoned in which I first start to vomit out all my ideas into Ableton. Then it takes a whole lifetime of not being high to polish them off and get them club ready. I also would like to give a special mention to the act of microdosing which has helped me creativity wise when nothing else would.

What do you do outside of music?

There isn’t a whole heap that goes on outside of music for me. My remaining time is spent either with my beautiful girlfriend or polishing up on my learnings of the Satanic Bible.

Any shows coming up?

I was just lucky enough to support Cookie Monsta over the weekend for the second time and then I get to play some summer hip hop jams by the beach in Scarborough on the 19th of this month at OH GROTTO.

What’s the rest of the year have in store?

I'm sitting on a whole heap of unreleased music so I’m just going to roll all that for everyone's listening pleasure/displeasure. Taste is so subjective.

Where can we hear more of your music?
