For their 27th JEUDI issue let’s welcome back one of the label headhonchos Doctor Dru. The “Savannah” EP is uniting his past as a drummer and his feel for hooky, layered arpeggios in a perfect manner. Dru’s tracks are always welcomed sureshots on the floor. His last contribution “The Pattern” was played to death by major league artists like Solomun or Nic Fanciulli. This year his infamous remixes of D-nox & Beckers “Serenade” on JEUDI , Nico Stojans “BLUE HOUR” and Sailor &I’s “Letters” stirred up the festivals and floors around the world. We are sure this release will find his way in the playlist of many DJs as well.
The “Savannah” leads you in the wide of the african steppe merging multi layered arpish melodies into one fine percussion driven hypnotizing tune. Of course with never missing the hands up moment.
“Praerie” is featuring a little darker atmosphere but not less percussion driven. You’ll find Dru’s signature drone with trancy melody interjections. But the breakdown is what made the tracks name. Inspired by the west coast synth melodies of the late 70’s it comes suprisingly and with just the right power to make the crowd freak out.
