Droeloe is a Dutch interdisciplinary art duo consisting of producer Vincent Rooijers (born 26 September 1992) and visual designer Hein Hamers (born 24 November 1994). In 2016 Droeloe joined San Holo's bitbird imprint where the duo released a string of singles including “zZz” and “Wake the Warrior”.[1][2]

History[edit]

The duo met at the University of Arts in Utrecht, where they both attended different studies. They teamed up as Droeloe, where Hein focussed on the visual aspect and Vincent on the music production.

Early 2016 they caught the ear of San Holo, who brought them aboard his bitbird imprint, teaming up for a string of successful single releases.[1] “Make My Day” accumulated over half a million SoundCloud streams,[3] but it was follow-up single “zZz” which hit #1 on the Hype Machine where the duo really made their mark. Tastemakers across the industry, including Martin Garrix, Mr Suicide Sheep, Majestic Casual, Trap Nation, and CloudKid all supporting.[4] Since then, the duo has gone on to put together a string of successful official remixes for bitbird, NEST HQ, and Atlantic which have all placed within the Top 10 of the Hype Machine charts. Their official remix of “We Don’t Talk Anymore” by Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez has 20 million Spotify streams and was premiered via Billboard.[5][6] They followed this with the release of “Shibuya” on Elysian, which solidified their position in the bass realm.[7] Droeloe returned to the bitbird label where they released “Wake the Warrior” revealing a stunning self-directed music video for the single which showcased the duo’s creativity imagined in a hyper-realistic visual perspective.[8]

2017 saw them kick off the new year with another Hype Machine #1 and a Lowly Palace debut with “In Time”.[9] Once again, the duo showed off their visual prowess and knack for creating engaging visual content by digitally animating the shapes and textures within the single’s artwork to bring the song’s story to life. With all of the hype building up, the duo debuted their first ever tour joining San Holo on the road through March across the United States.[10] They took their partnership with long-time mentor San Holo one step further teaming up for “Lines of the Broken” their biggest hit to date on bitbird.[11]

2018 has now seen the duo continue to find ways to extrapolate the Droeloe sound into a variety of styles plus make successful festival debuts at Okeechobee, BUKU, Coachella Do Lab, EDC Las Vegas, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza[12] and more en-route to a debut headline fall tour of their own.[13]
