Doctor P
At 14 years of age most young people are starting to realize their potential. This was no different for Doctor P back in 2000 when he discovered the music world.

At the age of 14 he started to play instruments finding a great love for the drums and guitar, as well as many others. By the age of 16 he took this talent to the live stage with unsigned bands, developing his gift to a better level and getting a taste of the musical world he was destined for.

2 years later, he discovered the world of DJ-ing and electronic music production, leading him to start experimenting further with his talents thus leading him to university where he decided to study music production at Northampton and then at the official Steinberg university in Huddersfield gaining a 2nd class bsc (hons) in popular music production.

With his new skills, Doctor P started to attract interest from artists and labels within the drum & bass market, the first being cyntax error records in 2006. This saw his first début release called 'the lawnmower tune b/w vitamin funk' which had additional production by DJ Amadeus. This was to be the record labels' début 12″ under the pseudonym 'sounds destructive'.
Producer and DJ from Bournemouth, UK, FuntCase aka James Hazell is known for his raw and dirty sound, forging the way with his controversial ‘filthy’ style. “FuntCase produces sensory overload bass music that wobbles, womps and machine guns through your body, making you dance whether you want to or not.”

James first expressed his love of music through jamming with his schoolmates, taking his energetic and aggressive drumming style from death metal as well as being heavily influenced by happy hardcore and jungle, growing up to a background of Helter Skelter and Dreamscape mixtapes.

After hearing ‘Bandwagon Blues’ by Twisted Individual, James fell in love with the drum and bass sound and began to focus his talents on producing. Sharing his tracks with D&B radio stations led to the first recognition of his foot-thumping talents, under the alias DJ Dose he released for the first time in 2007.

In 2009 James began to dabble with producing dubstep, giving his tunes a big energy by incorporating the drum and bass layering technique into his dubstep sound. His first track ‘Make Our Day’ was quickly signed to 4:20 Records. And so began the raw sound that is FuntCase.

It wasn’t long before FuntCase began trading tracks with Doctor P, and an offer soon followed to bring James into the Circus Records camp with the release of his famed track ‘So Vexed’, with ‘Mattress Punch’ on the flip, in 2010.

Since then the phenomenon has grown, FuntCase has become a legend of the DJ world. With an incredibly loyal fan base Funty is known world wide for working hard, playing hard, travelling hard – and DJing hard on stages globally. Claw 4 Life yo.

Though they have only been collaborating for 18 months, this duo’s output has already reached critical impact. Introducing: Diskord, the bass game’s freshest new collective. The boys already have an impressive array of triumphs under their belts from their successful solo careers, and now they’re combining their experience to take bass music to the next level.

Brought up in families with diverse musical tastes, Ed and James, now based in Bristol, both developed their passion for music through the traditional route of learning instruments at school including drums, piano and trumpet. That soon led to playing in bands, writing songs and eventually producing their own tracks.

Both musically advanced before their time, unknowingly the duo were two of a kind, with Ed experimenting using eJay and James familiarising himself with basic software to create electronic music. Their earliest influences, aside from cheesy euro dance like 2 Unlimited, were 90’s pioneers Fatboy Slim and the Prodigy, who, back then, formed their understanding of what dance music could and should be. Those influences grew to include a wide array of different artists and genres, which is reflected today in their unique productions.

When sneaking their way into raves while still under age, the two had their minds blown by what they saw and heard, and realised the potential that dance music held. Embracing that potential, they followed their chosen career path and played at every electronic music event that matters across Europe, Australia and New Zealand plus graced the hallowed Glastonbury Festival stages. Fast forward to the present and one drunken night in Bristol, a chance meeting led to the birth of DISKORD. They’ve already been featured on Never Say Die and UKF’s mammoth Volume 3 compilation, and that’s just the shape of things to come.

Alongside support from home label founder, Flux Pavillion, the duo have received acclaim for their sound from key industry influencers Antiserum, Adventure Club, Krewella, Datsik, Skism (who also gave them their first proper release on Never Say Die label) and dance music ‘rookie MVP’, DJ Brillz.

The distinctive sound they have created is driven by a blend of strong melodies and unmistakable hooks with trap 808s, unique drum work and gritty neurofunk reese basses. Diskord’s addictive high-energy style stands out from the crowd, and will satisfy even the most hardened bass junkie.
