Flying in from Germany and making his UK debut we’re excited to announce Doctor Dru, together with some of the most exciting local talent and the cool party cats of Leeds. This promises to be a night to remember.
Doctor Dru real name Martino Doncello started his career as a drummer supporting artists like R. Kelly playing concerts halls around Europe. But that was short lived as his love for skateboarding found him in hospital with 2 broken arms.
His passion for music didnt end there as he continued playing on his drummachine and producing music on the Atari, then started spinning vinyl in the local clubs. Before long he was producing for numerous artists including one of his heroes Bootsy Collins.
In 2010 he co-founded the label JEUDI Records, with like minded friends from Baalsaal, Hamburg and the following year saw him ghostproducing for other DJ´s and debut his own material. "Ooh Gosh!", his debut EP sat in the Top 5 of the dancecharts for week
His latest release ‘The Voice of Dru’ on Berlin record label ‘Exploited’ is sitting pretty at No.1 on Beatport. Its the 3rd instalment on the infamous Black Jukebox series which fuses disco vocals with a rhythmic bassline to make an energetic Deep House floor filler!
He has recently teamed up with the Adana Twins for their breakthrough: the "Everyday" EP on Exploited Records and previously they produced one of our favourite deep house edits ‘Juicy Fruit’ that put Exploited’s sub label ‘Black Jukebox’ on the map. The track samples ‘biggie smalls’ rap anthem ‘Juicy’ which they have funked up and tweaked to make the perfect summer house track.
Also we have local Leeds duo Waite & Armani bringing a live element to the night.
