A fan of rap and reggae music, French DJ & producer Hugo Douster has always looked for the mutations those styles gave birth to, mixing themselves with traditional rhythms 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 take the listener from one continent to another, looking for groundbreaking new styles of music emerging from the modern world. Throughout his carrer, he collaborated with key participants of the global music world like Diplo (US), Omulu (Brazil) or ZZK (Arg) for releases on labels such as Man Recordings, Mixpak and Enchufada amongst others.
Whether he's composing an emotional rap beat for platinum selling French band PNL or a fresh 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 avant-garde .
