DJs Pat Drastik and Tom Wrecks are the two halves that make up trap duo THUGLI. With sound reminiscent of EDM sweethearts RL Grime and Baauer, it’s not hard to understand why the trap community have welcomed the Canadian beatmakers with open arms. The longtime friends began their careers on a diet of VHS instructional videos and DJ battles before deciding to collaborate as THUGLI in 2012 when they dropped their debut mixtape, Take Off. It’s been uphill since then, with big names like Diplo and A-Trak dropping their music, THUGLI are well on their way to trap stardom.
