This distinct sound, what L D R U describes as "trapical," bounced through his debut 2013 single "The Tropics" released via Sydney's Future Classic label and a collaboration with Yahtzel "The Only One" is what caught the attention of Skrillex, A-Track, Diplo and What So Not. Eventually the pair formed the OWSLA duo Carmada and earned themselves a Gold Record (ARIA) for "Maybe".
Since then L D R U has released official remixes for Flume, Lorde, Jack Ü and Miami Horror. From one record to another, L D R U soon released "Keeping Score" featuring the defined vocals of Paige IV reaching 12 million Spotify streams, high rotation on Triple J, a Double Platinum Accreditation (ARIA) and coming in at a hot #22 on Triple J's 2015 Hottest 100. The track also received 3 ARIA nominations for Apple Music Song Of The Year, Breakthrough Artist and Best Dance Release and was the highest selling Australian single in 2016. His latest single "To Be Free" has also reached 2.2 million Spotify streams and is not far off a Gold Accreditation (ARIA).
