Dr Drip

Once the standard baring producer in the world of hardcore hip-hop, it appears that Doctor Dre has finally taking a trip up his own backside and moved into the new field we've hastily dubbed 'Progressive Hip-Hop', where ageing talents open up and try to take the music ‘to the next level’ (it doesn’t exist, by the way). Dre’s foray into this field appears to be an instrumental album about our solar system; deep man.

‘An instrumental album is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time,’ said Dre to Vibe. ‘I have the ideas for it. I want to call it The Planets. It's just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like. I'm gonna go off on that. Just all instrumental. I've been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet.

‘I've been doing this for about two years now, just in my spare time, so to speak. I wanna do it in surround sound. It'll have to be in surround sound for Saturn to work.’
