::Doctor Dru::DOWNLOAD PRESSPIC
Doctor Dru is one of the key proponents of the contemporary deep house movement that has swept across Europe and the rest of the world in recent years. He has a rich, multi-layered history, which permeates into his present output; DJing, working as a drummer, composing for other acts and, of course, producing his own emotive, wistful signature tracks that have cemented his reputation as a purveyor of the finest in deep house music.
Doctor Dru’s tunes will provoke genuine “A-ha” and “Yeah” moments! Years of deep musical knowledge are reinterpreted into his electronic productions, fueled by his dedication to beats, rhythms and melodies, which began long before his first eighties records got their groove going on. Seeing any sort of sticks made him drum, hearing every genre of audio constantly inspired him to bring his ideas into musical life. While he was on tour with world famous artists performing his high-level drum skills, Dru`s scores of machines were fiddled with, investigated and pushed to their limits.
But what about putting soul and smoothness into machines? And when Bootsy Collins asks you to produce his single? Well,you produce like you’re in funk heaven of course. In 2011, after hours locked away in his studio, Dru conceived modern-day classics such as “Juicy Fruit” and “Anymore” in collaboration with the Adana Twins. In 2012 his hit “The Voice of Dru” established Doctor Dru as one of the contemporary house movement’s main players, arriving via Exploited’s ‘Black Jukebox 03’ compilation. Being a number one charted artist over the course of several months placed him on the right musical path and so his follow-up “2KnowU” EP also managed to nail it in the same year.
The big club and festival doors soon opened and traveling the globe has led to him representing at some of the world’s most lauded venues such as Warung (Brazil), ZigZag (Paris), Destino and Ushuaia (Ibiza), Watergate (Berlin), Revolver Club (Melbourne), Treehouse (Miami), Loveland Festival (Amsterdam) and a many more.
