Mr Wolf pres. LDRUs F**k Off Exams Party | Fri 15th November
LDRUs biggest end of Exams set to hit Mr Wolf
Hailing from Sydney’s sunny Northern Beaches, L D R U – AKA Drew Carmody – turned to music production after suffering a debilitating back injury during his late teens. In his recovery, L D R U spent enough time finely tuning his compositions and ultimately engineered his distinct sound that would eventually go on to captivate his city, his country, and fans from all corners.
This distinct sound, what L D R U describes as “trapical,” bounced through his debut 2013 single "The Tropics" released via Sydney’s Future Classic label and a collaboration with Yahtzel "The Only One" is what caught the attention of Skrillex, A-Track, Diplo and What So Not. Eventually the pair formed the OWSLA duo Carmada and earned themselves a Gold Record (ARIA) for "Maybe".
From one record to another, L D R U soon released "Keeping Score" featuring the defined vocals of Paige IV, reaching 19 million Spotify streams, high rotation on Triple J, a Double Platinum Accreditation (ARIA) and coming in at a hot #22 on Triple J’s 2015 Hottest 100. The track also received 3 ARIA nominations for Apple Music Song Of The Year, Breakthrough Artist and Best Dance Release and was the highest selling Australian single in 2016. His latest single "To Be Free” has also reached 7 million Spotify streams and is not far off a Gold Accreditation (ARIA).
The past few years have seen L D R U tear up stages across his National Australian & New Zealand Tours as well as major Australian festivals including Splendour In The Grass, Stereosonic, Sydney City Limits, ThisThat, Field Day, Listen Out, Southbound and Falls Arts and Music Festival just to name a few.
In 2017, L D R U released his highly anticipated 9 track EP titled “Sizzlar” and toured off the back of the release. A year later, he performed to 10,000 people in the Mix Up Tent for a special performance at Splendour In The Grass for LDRU + Yahtzel present: Carmada.
In the last year, Drew has released multiple tracks, “Can’t Drive Ft. Mammals”, “Lay You Down Ft. Muki” & just last month, he dropped a 2 track EP, one track with indie band, Boo Seeka and the other tilted “Ruler”.
Drew is currently working on releasing new music and playing more shows over the New Year!
