Biography

Genod Droog was formed in early 2005 in a police cell in Cardiff, after being caught up in a soccer hooligan rumble and being wrongly accused. This is where Dutch DJ Kim De Bills met Mr Phormula, an American-born Welsh bred rapper. Following a discussion about soccer chants, the topic turned to music.

Thankfully, no arrest was made and Genod Droog was born. That night, the pair went out to see some live music. Having seen nothing they liked, they returned to their hotel where a smooth lounge trio was playing in the corner - their name was Golden Image. It was a very bad name but they had a great smooth lounge sound. The band consisted of brothers Dyl Mei, Gethin Evans and a poet known only as ‘Nine tonne’ who has his own chair, which he takes everywhere with him. Following their set, they all talked about lounge and agreed that Golden Image was actually crap. The brothers and the poet quit the band and then the fun truly began.

Mix a black rapper, a Dutch DJ, a Breton born French speaking Welshman (did I mention he has his own chair?), a South Korean born drummer and a Northern Korean keyboard/guitar player, and you get the amazing sound of Genod Droog. The sound is a mixture of TV themes, French electro Pop, Welsh folk, hip hop, dance and funk, all reflected in a live show.
