Solid Doctor


Solid Doctor’s Steve Cobby may be the prominent creative force in back of well-known Hull-based trip-hop label Pork Recordings, for whom he’s documented several full-length albums in a number of brands (including Fila Brazillia and Levels of Abraham). Pork was shaped in 1991 by Cobby and fellow Hullster/flatmate Dave Pork to be able to release the very first one by Cobby’s then-side task, Fila Brazillia (Fila provides since become his concentrate), pursuing which he started releasing solo materials beneath the Solid Doctor name. He released two full-lengths in just a season (one of these, THINK ABOUT Some Ether?, a double-disc compilation of singles) and helped attract important focus on Pork using a mixture of instrumental hip-hop, dub, funk, and home that would shortly propel labels such as for example Mo’Wax and Glass of Tea in to the limelight. Like prior musical efforts (including Big Lifestyle! pop/dance group Ashley & Jackson, which dissolved around 1990), Cobby’s Solid Doctor materials carves out an area between your dancefloor as well as the hi-fi, targeting a middle surface of groove with songwriting and musicianship provided equal weight using the more practical account of shifting a crowd.
