TEESH presents RüF Dug
Joining us for his debut appearance at Sneaky Pete’s, and 1st time in Edinburgh no less, we are proud to present Rüf Dug!
Manchester’s Rüf Dug 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.
DJs from Moodymann to Ben UFO to José Padilla reach for Ruffy’s tracks on labels as diverse as Unknown To The Unknown, Golf Channel, Music For Dreams and his own highly collectible RUF KUTZ imprint – 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.
He’s back in Manchester these days, holding a residency at award-winning club the Soup Kitchen and is one of the minds behind the infamous Wet Play parties. He’s a regular guest at Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section (they called him “The epitome of everything we stand for and an inspiration for all we aim to blossom into,”) presents a monthly show on NTS radio and has a knack for bringing the vibe to any room.
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.
For the uninitiated, TEESH is resident DJ Cheers ‘All You Can Eat Mind Buffet’ through Cosmic Afro, Boogie, Classics, Disco, Funk, House, Hip Hop, Soul, arps, clicks, warm weirdness, subtle highs and occasional strandbar, throwing parties the 2nd Saturday, every month at Sneaky Pete’s.
With eclectic guests including ~ Kindness / Pearson Sound / Palms Trax / Lord Of The Isles / Glowing Palms / Project Pablo there is also a strong emphasis on visual art & video.
