Ruf Dug – ‘Go Doof Doof’ Ransom Note Mix
Our second edition to the 'Go Doof Doof' mix series is from Manchester's charismatic Ruf Dug, who just happens to be taking his second bite of the R$N mix apple… Yes, he has previously supplied us with a juicy mix, which you can listen to here. A mythical chewy mix it was… But this time around we've been given a mix with a bit more OOMPH. A cosmic feathered serpant with diamond eyes, to be exact.
For a man who likes to be out playing and partying, he isn't short of achievments with his own Ruf Kutz imprint, multiple releases on labels such as Unknown To Unknown, Crosstown Rebels, Banoffee Pies and more plus he has a few exciting projects hitting shelves soon, which include an album on Music For Dreams.
Get your Doof Doof sweats on, it's going to be a bumpy ride;
WHO ARE YOU:
I am Ruf Dug. Good afternoon.
WHERE ARE YOU:
In the sunshine!
WHY ARE YOU DOING A MIX AGAIN? YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TWO BITES OF THE R$N MIX APPLE!
What the fuck is a mix apple and where do I get one?
THE LAST TIME WE HEARD YOU PLAY RECORDS WE WERE LYING ON A LILO IN THE ADRIATIC AS YOU NURSED OUR PRETTY SAVAGE HANGOVER BACK INTO THE LAND OF THE LIVING… THANKS FOR THAT.
ANY, THIS IS A BIT MORE DOOF DOOF THAN THE LAST ONE YOU DID FOR US ISN’T IT?!
Yeah man, you would probably be asking for your money back if you heard this mix at a relaxing sunset session…
WHERE WAS THE MIX RECORDED?
At Tuck HQ, our secret base in Ancoats.
WHAT WOULD BE THE IDEAL SETTING TO LISTEN TO THE MIX?
