ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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."

Excellent crispy-fried nu-breaks and sizzling synthesis!
From the moment I tore open the package, I knew I had something special. Druu's new release is polished in every facet.

It might seem minor, but nothing pleases me more than an indie artist dropping a nicely packaged product on the world. Rarely have I picked up an indie release with poor graphics and packaging and found it to contain killer tracks. Sorry, just a fact. The artist's aesthetic and personal standard shines through, yes, even with the packaging. Druu has put together a world-class looking CD jacket. The photos, front and back, suggest, "this guy is serious about the science he's about to drop on you."

Inside the jacket reads, "Sub-Urban is voyage through city and space, built from 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. Turn it up and never stop moving!"

ALL TRUE. ABSOLUTELY.

If you like clean, sophisticated nu-school breaks, Druu's programming is gonna knock you out. He occasionally tips his hat to the greats before us, but for the most part the sound is distinctly his and consistent throughout the EP. Occasionally, he gets a little aggressive at times with cutting, buzzing leads (Fever likey!), but for the most part you will find his beats highly accessible and more groovy than thrashing - a good thing for most listeners, I am sure. Yes, this is a very accessible and hospitable sound.

Seven excellent tracks packaged perfectly. Highly recommended.
