Download: D/R/U/G/S - Amphibian EP

Mancunian producer D/R/U/G/S' sound is difficult to pigeonhole in terms of genre, yet one can definitely pin point some recurring themes.  For one he does not shy away from the buzzier side of synth textures, which are often complimented by deep ambient pads. He also places a lot of emphasis on melodies and manages to deliver unique manipulations of vocal snippets, a trick that many electronic producers resort to these days yet fail to do so creatively.  All of the above holds up on the three track EP that he is offering up for free in exchange for your e-mail (fill in the widget below for your own copy).  Opening track "Hemisphere" is a definite highlight and the froggy bassline could easily be the inspiration for the EP's title. Also noteworthy is the third track, "Ring of Endless Light" that sounds a bit like something FSOL would have produced in 2012.  If you're interested in catching D/R/U/G/S and you reside in the UK, check out the details of his tour with Delphic here.
