Having been DJing in London and across the UK alongside fellow beat freak DJ shredded Pete since the early nineties, 1999 saw the good doctor unleash his formative funk productions on the world. He had begun work in his own basic studio the previous year, and the first public airing of his work came at the Muzik Magazine awards in late '99. Dr Rubberfunk's ?Muzik Theme' opened and closed the prestigious awards ceremony at the Gainsborough studios in London.
The following year saw club residencies at both Ministry of Sound and Home, and, following many hours slaving over a hot sampler, a single deal with Southern Fried Records. His first single, ?Harry The Guitar' was featured on the covermount CD accompanying the December 2000 issue of Later magazine.
2001 saw more great dancefloor action across the UK with plenty of DJ dates and a great deal of press, club and radio support for the debut Dr Rubberfunk release ?Harry The Guitar'. Radio 1's Steve Lamacq ? a strong supporter of the track at the time of release ? rated it as one of his ?Tunes of the Year' in his end of year show. Others who supported and praised his first (qu)easy listening beatfest included; Jo Whiley, Coldcut, Freddy Fresh, XFM, John Stapleton, Ursula 1000 and the Galaxy Radio network.
December 2001 hailed the release of the long awaited follow-up, in the form of the ?Disco Scene' EP, on GPS Records. A homage to cut and paste pioneers like Double Dee and Steinski, Coldcut and Major Force, Dr Ruberfunk upped the tempo and locked the bass lines for plenty of danceflor mayhem.
Alongside his own productions, Dr Rubberfunk has been busy remixing the likes of the Poets of Rhythm, and January 2002 saw his own Funkydown Recordings come to fruition with the debut release from live raw funk combo Mr Guder. 2002 began with a residency for award winning and now sadly defunct internet broadcasters Groovetech.com, and the release of his second limited edition vinyl only single for GPS Records; ?Step on it', followed in July. Caned on the dancefloors by the likes of Mr Scruff, Dynamo Productions, Groove Armada, Quantic and Pressure Drop, ?Step on it' won further fans worldwide and gained great reviews in the music press.
After the release of ?Latin Player' in April, and a summer of sunshine fuelled sampling, ?Bossa for the devil' was released in September 2003, and quickly followed previous singles into hearts and onto dancefloors worldwide. Swinging piano jazz, rolling bossa breaks and tight hiphop beats, all topped off with an uplifting jazz vocal.
With a regular weekly mix slot on BBC 6 music, and continued DJ excursions across the UK and Europe, including a great set at Glastonbury, 2004 saw that the world got a chance to hear ?The First Cut' LP. The doctor also found time to complete a number of remixes and reworks for artists such as The Fort Knox Five, Spooky Monkey, Malente and Skalpel.
