Urulu, real name Taylor Freels, is a California boy through and through. With an innate talent for sunny, contemplative chords and clever drum programming, he quickly caught the ear of Berlin's Dirt Crew. He'd go on to drop acclaimed releases on respected imprints such as NYC's Let's Play House and Melbourne’s Voyage Recordings, as well as tastemaking outlets such as Needwant, Shabby Doll and Spanish outfit Saft/Pulp. Freels is also a beast on the decks, armed with the chutzpah to mix gnarlier Detroit and Chicago emanations with modern, envelope-pushing house sounds. To that end, he's gathered a tight-knit group of producers for his own label Amadeus, a home which aims to bring it all together. With his label, he's working with Auckland-based scene stormers Chaos In The CBD, LA house zoners Sage Caswell and Cromie and fellow Berlin ex-pat Huerta. As 2017 draws to a close, Urulu is preparing to launch a follow up record for Melbourne mainstay Andy Hart's Voyage Recordings and a couple of new projects with which he can indulge in the dubbed-out club sounds he's become enamored with while living between Los Angeles and Berlin.
