about

Let’s get on with the business of Steve Cobby’s major contribution to downtempo funk in this country and leftfield dance music in general. He is one half of Fila Brazillia and one third of Heights of Abraham, which on their own should get him a knighthood.

He’s also The Solid Doctor, his (inevitably) princely solo project of subtle beats and warm, ambient sound space. Sod the sculpted wombic interior of the modern luxury car, the second most comfortable place you’ll have ever been is immersed in the amniotic aural fluids of 'Faustian Bargain’, the ambient breakbeats of 'In The Offing’ or in the sunny electro phonic jazz funk of 'Intranauts’.
