Next up on the premiere series is a record from the newly founded Ruffset Records who launch with their debut EP 'Chicken Shops'. The first release see's label co-owner Al 'Upstart' Smith showcase two original tracks, both with remixes from the super talented Peaky Beats and his deeper house-influenced alias, MYR.
Born from a love of all things old school and a common passion for discovering and dancing to new sounds, Al, together with co-founder Elliott Owen have coined together their ethos of 'Reflections of the past. Sounds of the future'.
Both parties have been involved in the scene as DJs for some time, whilst Elliott also brings with him a core affiliation with the reputable party and label Music Related; who broke their Fabric duck just recently. Despite Ruffset being Al's first label project, he's had tunes signed to Needwant and will be well involved in the recruitment of new produce as the label develops.
"We want to explore the wide range of sounds and vibes that resonate with us and our rave heritage. Built with the vinyl resurgence and independent labels in mind, we want to give back to the scene by delivering the fun reflective of 'back in the day', without trying to make it the same as it was. Expect to see more UKG but also Jungle, Breaks and Hardcore as well as House & Techno. We expect to put out 2-4 releases per year, so nothing too hectic but only if the music is right!
Introducing 'Fleeing Clocks' by Upstart on Ruffset Records.
