Craig Blundell set to release solo record on 01/01/10

UK drum ace Craig Blundell (AKA Dr Oktopus) has been busy working on his debut solo record, and its release is imminent. One will be unleashed to the public on 1 January 2010 (01/01/10).

The album will not be your average drum record. Think drum and bass meets metal, jungle meets classical, progressive meets bhangra and you're getting close to the heart of this project. We've heard some unmixed samples today and Craig's diverse and ambitious style really shines through.

Keep your eyes peeled to for more details.

Upon release you will be able to download the album from and from iTunes.
