The New York-based producer melds US and UK styles on his bass-heavy Angel EP.
As Doctor Jeep, Andre Lira favors an anything-goes approach to dance tracks, fusing UK funky, Jersey club, dubstep and hip-hop into a style he describes as “dark, tribal, and percussion-heavy.”
“Recently someone wrote that one of my tracks sounded like ‘a London rave taking place in a jungle cult at midnight’ which I happily agreed with,” he writes. And while it might not be a London rave, he describes a recent trip to Outlook as “easily the best experience” of his life. “Hearing [dubstep and drum-n-bass] on these massive soundsystems surrounded by 15,000 other people that ‘get it’ was really mindblowing.”
His is certainly a style that is right at home on Trouble & Bass, which he’s linked up with for a series of releases. After releasing the Vortex and Bird of Paradise EPs on the label, Doctor Jeep will drop the Angel EP on December 8.
