This makes me so happy- uplifting and subtly euphoric synth from D/R/U/G/S.
So Lana Del Rey’s ‘Born To Die’ has gone platinum in the UK, France, Germany and Ireland and sold over 1.4million albums globally in under a month, along with 2 million single sales.
Sunday April 8th sees the release of “Blue Jeans” the third single from the album. The track will come with a bumper remix package including D/R/U/G/S, Blood Orange, Kris Menace and RAC and will be out on Polydor Records. Available on digital download and 7” picture disc, and digital remix EP.
D/R/U/G/S produces organic house music, music which at its heart is for dancing and never troubles itself with genre or category too much. ‘Connected’ opens with distinctive fluidity, ducking and weaving effortlessly through old school rave keys and modern tech house whilst ‘Unified Field’ ends the EP in style, piercing parts of the brain very few know how to reach.

22-year-old Callum Wright spent his early years, in his words, in “London council estate shitholes” and moved to Manchester in his teens. D/R/U/G/S’s early tracks quickly found their way onto the blogs and soon were being written about by Q, NME, The Fader, Dummy and XLR8R and played by Rob da Bank and Steve Lamacq on radio. Along the way, he’s found himself standing shoulder-to-shoulder with a new group of brave DIY electronic artists that include Gold Panda, Teengirl Fantasy, Becoming Real, Dam Mantle, Hype Williams and Blondes.
