Funky, groovy, nasty, silky...
Electronica and Hip-Hop songwriter/producer Druu is back with his debut EP, Sub-Urban. Anchored in Breakbeat styles but incorporating elements from Acid, Trance and Techno, Sub-Urban is a journey through city and space and is full of Breakbeat grooves, 4-on-the-floor mayhem and Drum 'n Bass energy that will make you bob your head, shake your butt and drive too fast!
"Domination", "Pulse" and other songs from Sub-Urban are included in the soundtrack to Court TV series LA Forensics. "Domination" is also in the soundtrack to the casting special for MTV's The Real World: Denver.
"Never Stop Moving" is in the soundtrack to MTV's Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Gauntlet 2. Listen for it in episode 3.
Title track "Sub-Urban" is in the soundtrack to Green Bottle Productions' import car scene DVD Fire It Up, along with tracks by The Pharcyde, Visionaries and Kottonmouth Kings.
The "Mean Streets Remix" of Sub-Urban's first track "Domination" is featured in the Discovery Channel series Combat Zone, the Supercross Preview Show on CBS, the Discovery Channel documentary Supersonic: Pushing the Envelope and Fuel TV's Blue Carpet Special: Community Project.
"Journey" is featured in the Discovery Channel documentary Racer Girlz, and "Lifeform" is in the soundtrack to episode 7 of the Discovery Channel series, Combat Zone.
Druu recorded for Epic Records in the 1990's under the name The Doctor, but has since emerged as a songwriter/producer, collaborating with saxophonist Wilton Felder of the Jazz Crusaders and making noise in 2004 with the satirical Hip-Hop single, Get Rid of Your Bush.

Here are some excerpts from a review of Sub-Urban from Fevertech at SonicRaider.com internet radio:
"From the moment I tore open the package, I knew I had something special. Druu's new release is polished in every facet... It's a beautifully packaged EP featuring seven stellar tracks that are sure to help you break the speed limit... If you like clean, sophisticated nu-school breaks, Druu's programming is gonna knock you out."
"Journey" the third track on Sub-Urban, was reviewed at Besonic.com. According to that review: "Druuly, truely a trip. Accompanied by acid elements this is quite a ride into deep space. So put on your helmets, check your engine and wobble your way into it."
