feeder sound exclusive premiere: Dragutesku – Zen [DRG Limited]
After several mysterious releases, Adrian Dragut aka Dragutesku officially reveals his affiliation to the well-known DRG Series with a 2×12” LP titled “Dualism”. Exploring both the dark side of his ego and the peaceful depth of his soul just like the title of the album implies, the material offers 8 fresh tracks ranging from gloomy and twisted rhythms to joyous and lighthearted compositions. The concept of Yin and Yang serves as inspiration here, with the artist expressing a different version of himself, one that has matured throughout time and countless hours spent in the studio. The double vinyl arrives in a limited number of copies while a digital version will also be made available soon. The artwork is signed by Robert Obert, a local multidisciplinary visual artist known for his forward-thinking creations.
Dragutesku was also the one behind “Suflet Prezent“, the first pressing released by feeder sound, as well as our guest for the first episode of the live streaming series launched in 2019. His unique approach to the modern house, techno and minimal music steadily brought him international support, growing a large audience among DJs, producers and party-goers.
“Music is about the soul connection between the artist and the listener. With Zen I tried to express my deepest feelings and transcend into a peaceful state because that’s the real happiness.” – Dragutesku
“Zen” closes the LP with a deeply soothing vibe flavoured with warm pads, dreamy textures, spacious breakdowns and calm, steady-paced drumming patterns. A contemplative feeling is profoundly rooted in the track, making it perfect to conclude this stunning release. With the first record engaging into dark themes, glitched or warped sounds while the second part explores the opposites, “Dualism” is by far a must-have for any collector or selector. The variety of the rhythms will take you for a one of a kind ride into endless dimensions of sound, so buckle up and grab your copy of Dualism LP from decks.de or bandcamp.
When the Australian imprint Unic set sails in 2018, Dragutesku opened their first vinyl-only Various Artists compilation with “Fonetic”, which we featured on the exclusive premieres column.
Listen to feeder sound 103 mixed by Dragutesku, infused with unreleased tracks at that time.
🔴 The next episode of our ongoing feeder sound live streams will bring together Dan Andrei (dj set) and Serebe (live painting) on the 16th of September during the Romanian Design Week. Join the event here!
