044 – Droog

US DJs Andrei Osyka, Brett Griffin and Justin Sloe have been steadily gathering an international reputation whilst holding down a residency at one of the biggest clubs in the US, Avalon Hollywood. Collectively they’re known as Droog, which in Russian means ‘friend’, and friends they won’t be short of after hosting parties with the likes of Nicolas Jaar, Dixon, Jamie Jones and all four members of Visionquest.

The house cohorts started producing in 2009 and subsequently their LA-based label Culprit was born, establishing a reputation as one of the most reliable house labels to come out of North America. With releases from a host of prominent characters of the scene such as Soul Clap, Lee Foss and Hot Natured, the imprint became venerated for releases as light-hearted as they are forward-thinking. They’ve now taken time out to orchestrate the latest Crackcast, providing a blend of typically catchy vocals and 4×4 on trend house. Bringing their party spirit to a host of festivals this summer, you can also catch Droog nestled within the stunning line up for Eastern Electrics this August.
