The weekend has landed and all that matters now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. You've got 48 hours off the 9-5, it's time to unbutton your hustle and breathe vigor back into life. Whether it be through losing your soul on the dance floor or grooving to it, we have your soundtrack covered. The EARMILK Weekend Selector, an exclusive guest mix series where we invite the latest budding talent from behind the booth to usher you through all the boozie and jam. From your morning bedside to tonight's evening formal, your weekend selector is here to fill a void of good taste and allow fresh connections to flow vicariously.
Regardless of how long you've followed the name, it's still hard to put a finger on Douster. A man that has often flipped his production style from stripped down house to more serious electro. Listening to his catalogue you'd be hard pressed to accept that he's based out of the French city of Lyon. With a brighter palette of sounds, exotic percussion is a must. And that's what makes this pelican stand out in such a drab environment. His music is of a different colour, but the motif has always stayed the same. An aural assault that pecks away at your insecurities and lures you onto the floor. Tribal and tropical, the feeling is natural and buried deep inside of us.
It's in wall beating tracks like "Afro Nuts", the 2009 release that saw play from everyone, the electro headbangers to the chin scratching house heads. And of course, who can go about mentioning his name without running over "King of Africa". The Lion King sampled intro track that threw his name into the spotlight as top bill DJs opened their headlining festival spots with a throwback to everyone's inner toddler. Since then things have changed, Douster has been racking up credentials to his name and his sound has grown to fully wrap around who he actually is. Find out in our interview with the man on decks and his hand as the soundtrack to your weekend.
