We first welcomed Ruf Dug to the Pool Hall back in 2012 and this what he had to say:
‘LOOK MAN I DON’T LIKE THIS BIO SHIT… I TRIED A FEW DIFFERENT ONES AND THEY DON’T WORK. MY RECORDS ARE RAW TRACKS FOR THE CLUB THAT FUCK AROUND WITH THE CONCEPT OF COPYRIGHT A BIT BUT NOBODYS MAKING $$$$ SO ITS ALL GOOD. I HAD MY FIRST RECORD ON POPULAR PEOPLES FRONT AND THEN POWERED UP RUF KUTZ, WE DONE A FEW RELEASES NOW AND THEY ALL GO FOR BEADS ON DISCOGS.
I LIVE IN MANCHESTER, IT FUCKIN KILLS UP HERE, WE HAVE A GREAT SCENE. I WAS BORN HERE AND SPENT MOST OF MY LIFE HERE EXCEPT FOR 8 YEARS WHEN I LIVED IN SYDNEY AND GOT INVOLVED WITH SOME MAD WAREHOUSE SQUAT PARTY SCENES.
ME AND SOME CHUMPS DO A PARTY IN MANC CALLED WET PLAY, IT IS FUCKIN DOPE AND YOU SHOULD COME CHECK IT OUT IF YOU LIKE A NICE RAW SWEATY SESSION THAT STICKS TWO FINGERS UP TO THE PONCES AND THE POSERS AND WHATVER IS “HOT”.’
In essence, nothing has changed. Ruf Dug is realler than ever and his gospel of good vibes and eclectic dancefloor bombs is spreading.
Wet Play has been superceded by DANCERS WANTED – the best dance up north and Ruffy now has a popular NTS show and one of the years best albums, ‘ISLAND’ under his belt.
Mr Ruf Dug aka Si, is the cornerstone of everything we stand for and an inspiration for all we aim to blossom into and it is with the utmost pleasure we welcome him back to the dance for the fourth time!
2 decks, a rotary mixer, 1 red neon light and a few crates of vinyl.
