About King Dou Dou
A fan of rap and reggae music, French DJ and producer Hugo Douster has always looked for the mutations those styles gave birth to, mixing them with traditional rhythms from all around the world.
With the King Doudou project, he looks for the common tie between Latino- American dembow, Ivorian coupé décalé, Southern US rap or Brazilian baile funk. His DJ sets takes us from one continent to another, looking for groundbreaking new styles of music emerging from the modern world.
Throughout his career, he collaborated with key participants of the global music world like Diplo (US), Omulu (Brazil) or ZZK (Arg) for releases on labels such as Enchufada, Man Recordings, Mixpak and many more.
Wether he is composing an emotional rap beat for the platinum selling French band PNL or a fresh dancehall riddim for Catalan dancehall queen Bad Gyal, King Doudou ties link between the mainstream and the underground, Europe and America, the old school and the avantgarde.
