Biography of an Up, Bustle & Out DJ

When the world focused on Bristol, names like Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Soul II Soul and Up, Bustle & Out exploded in to existence. Up, Bustle & Out didn't run to the major record labels, but chose a humbler route - the independent. Up, Bustle & Out signed with the UK's most famous label NINJA TUNE, and their sound pioneered the London Label and carried their reputation internationally.
No other Ninja artist released the volume of work that Up, Bustle & Out did with 5 albums and 13 EP singles.
DJ Rudy, the creator, writer and producer is an unusual character seeing music as a story, a journey and a road to new experiences. DJ Rudy always experiments with sounds, as a student inherited his uncle's 1970's vinyl funk record collection, spent most of his time, in between studying, DJ'ing on the cool Bristol Scene, hosting a 2-hour weekly Pirate Radio Show and hanging out in record shops between London and Bristol. At 18 years old he produced the first 12" EP cut for Up, Bustle & Out - An African Friendship - an instant success and was the golden key to labels, remixes, promotion, international DJ'ing, press and a long and accomplished writing and production career.
DJ Dave has been involved with Up Bustle & Out for over 10 years performing memorable Live sets and DJ sets all over the world including Russia, Europe and Japan. His sets are eclectic blending UB&O beats with Reggae, Funk and global breaks and beats. Listen to his exclusive DJ mixdown on the DJ Dave page.
As a DJ, Rudy is not looking for attitude, just cool, happy party vibes - mixing up Beats, Hip Hop, World Grooves, Jazz, Reggae, D&B, and FUNKY sounds from vinyl, all with originality, a confident flare and with an edge of mystery as found in Up, Bustle & Out recordings and releases.
