Mancunian musician and producer D/R/U/G/S has made a name for himself over the years with his pioneering mix of ambient beats and post rock sounds. It’s a style that he continues to refine and rework, and the fruits of this constant reinvention can be heard on new track Solid Sky.
There’s a sombre majesty to the track, as synths skim like stones over menacingly shimmering basslines. It rolls along, chiming guitar solos ghosting in and out of hearing range whilst they engage in a duel with, at times, unsettling vocal samples. Ultimately though the track has a driving and uplifting feel, like an urban hymn for the night people, making Solid Sky another highlight in an already impressive series of releases for D/R/U/G/S.
