On July, 12, as part of the Selector AfterDark series supported by Beefeater Gin London, the Kuznya club in St.Petersburg will host Simon Ruf Dug from Manchester, artist of the Bradley Zero label and one of the presenters at the popular NTS.FM show. The event will be held as part of the 2019 UK-Russia Year of Music by the British Embassy in Moscow with the support of the British Council.
Ruf Dug is a Manchester-based DJ, owner of the popular edit-label Ruf Kutz, organizer of monthly parties at Soup Kitchen — one of the best clubs in England according to The Guardian. Having moved to Australia in the early 2000s, he took part in semi-legal techno raves in abandoned hangars and warehouses for almost ten years. Ruf Dug released tracks with the labels Unknown To The Unknown, Golf Channel, Public Possession, Is It Balearic, Tirk and others. He composed a wonderful album Islands on Music For Dreams and the experimental ambient album Treatment 32, released in a limited edition on tape. He is known all around the world for his eclectic sets which include almost all genres from dirty techno to sad and romantic disco.
Kito Jempere will perform together with Simon, with whom they had played once at the NTS radio
