RUFFAGE is back for July after a bangin’ opener in June. Here’s how July line up is looking…

Eli – After missing last month due to illness, Eli is still hanging to drop his Drumfunk set. Expect leftfield jungle, drumfunk and choppagee from late 90s to present day releases. Think artists like Paradox, Krust, Breakage, Equinox, Photek…

Haze – Coming in with Hardcore Breakbeat and Jungle sounds. Haze is production partner with Ross Fader who absolutely smashed it last month. His musical influences come from producers from the infamous Moving Shadow, Reinforced and Kniteforce labels to name a few.
Production wise Haze now focuses on the sounds of yesteryear with tracks ranging from 130bpm to 170bpm in either early Hardcore, Breakbeat, Jungle or Drum & Bass.

Sophie Loizou aka Anomie – Expect a mixed bag of upfront UKG and broken beat bass. Sofie has played alongside the seminal greats including Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus, Daedelus, Kode 9, Teebs, DJ Vadim, Theo Parrish, Goth Trad and many more. She is also presenter of the excellent 2ser radio show “Shadows of Tomorrow” and part of the amazing collective Djs and producers at Got Music Social Club

Alec Sander – Part of the infamous Dunj collective this guy knows his beats. We have been told to expect a set of breakbeat / grime / early dubstep – The era of dubstep where there was a lot of experimentation and genre blending going on. Artists like Slaughter Mob, Elemental, Toasty Boy, MRK1, Darqwan

Vaughan Healey – slowing down the tempo’ s for July – Vaughan will be bringing a record box full of 90s downtempo breaks to warm the room up.
