The Detour presents Ruf Dug (Ruf Kutz, Rhythm Section, NTS Radio on Sunday 18th April 2021
Ruf Dug brings analogue heat, weirdness, expensive records, 50p bangers and a HEAVY VIBE to the party.
The original tropical cyberpunk boasts his own monthly NTS show, runs the highly collectible Ruf Kutz imprint and co-owns Manchester’s newest and weirdest appointment-only record shop, Hi-Tackle, a paradise of vinyl gems and computer games. He also makes tunes that find their way into A-list record bags and has built a reputation for jamming out highly energetic DJ sets that reflect his wide range of influences.
A regular guest at Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section, Gottwood and Houghton, DJs from Moodymann to Ben UFO to Midland to Gilles Peterson reach for his tracks on labels as diverse as Unknown To The Unknown, Golf Channel, Music For Dreams or his latest Man Power remix on Future Boogie. Not content to stay still stylistically, Ruf Dug’s sound is tough to pigeonhole. Blame the esotericism on his nomadic background – brought up in Manchester with summers in Ibiza, Ruf Dug moved to Australia and got caught up in the post-millenial Sydney underground warehouse scene, earning his DJ stripes at squat jams and sex parties.
From the dirtiest cassette techno through the smoothest street soul to tropical island beats; from sensual sunset ambiences through late night disco peakers to burned out boogie – Ruf Dug joins dots like none other, never once losing the connection between the mind, the body, the soul, and the dance.
