Future Bass act, DROELOE, has announced they are officially splitting up. The duo, consisting of Vincent Rooijers and Hein Hamers, said that the differing creative ambitions were the primary drivers of the split, and noted that the split was a mutual agreement. The duo have long focused separately on the functions of the group, spearheading the music and visual side of things respectively.
The name DROELOE will continue, Rooijers will continue to release music under DROELOE, while Hamers will continue making visual art on a multitude of projects. In their personal letter about the split, both artists thanked their fans and expressed gratitude for the journey. Additionally, Hamers helped further explain the reason for the split:
“This isn’t a decision we take lightly and we completely understand that this might come as a shock for people. However, we both think it’s the best thing for us to do to further stimulate both of our individual growth.”
The announcement comes just days after DROELOE released “Roadside Flowers” preceding their incoming anthology album. Read Rooijers and Hamers’ full statements below.
