DJRUM

Djrum's eclecticism is perhaps his most endearing prospect, as his casual disregard for genre boundaries allows a channelling of his huge range of influences into a sample-inflected blend of noise.

Classically trained in the jazz tradition, since 2010 Felix Manuel aka Djrum has been concocting a late-night melting pot of dubstep, garage, techno and dub, maintaining a gold label quality control throughout.

“Djrum does nothing in half measures, be it his extensive knowledge of music, and his application of said knowledge to his productions, or his relentless release schedule. The Oxford-born, London-based producer has been an acclaimed proposition since the beginning of his tenure as a producer nearly a decade ago.

Having grown up on a diet of R&B, later studying ethnomusicology at university, and finally finding his place in the bass-heavy heyday of London’s 00s club scene, Djrum’s rich musical heritage has enabled an incredibly varied output. His eclecticism is perhaps his most endearing prospect, as his casual disregard for genre boundaries allows a channelling of his huge range of influences into a sample-inflected blend of noise.” – Hyponik
