Earl Grey & PJU - Drum Boxx EP
After a long time of DJing and partying together, London based producers PJU and Earl Grey raided their collection of floppy discs full of edgy samples and put them into a dance project. With a mutual passion for all things early Chicago House and JACK, they draw inspiration from the early days when house music was raw and edgy and their mission is to bring that vibe into the present.
The trio released the big club monster “Call Me Up” last year on the Exploited Ghetto label to much acclaim, with airplay from BBC Radio 1 Annie Mac among countless club DJs. A handful of fun packed studio sessions messing around with a Roland drum machine & an SH-101 bass box resulted in the “Drum Boxx EP”. The title track “Drum Boxx”, heavy on the drum machine percussion, is a homage to all great noisy drum machines out there. “Computer Wars” makes you want to jack to Defender, while “Muzik” is about... well music which makes you dance! It’s simple and most cleverly stoopid, like some great music should be. Also included in the package is a remix of “Muzik” by Earl Grey himself. Adding some classy piano chords giving “Muzik” a more soulful approach. A nice release after 3 heavy hitting jacking House Traxxx. Enjoy Earl Grey & PJU - “Drum Boxx” EP. Now, let’s JACK!
