Biography

Born from the industrial powers of Dayton, Ohio, Ruckus Roboticus has risen to unleash his fury of funk, hip-hop and mischief. Part turntable, half drum machine, all sex machine; the robotic wonder has continually electrified listeners with his colorful and imaginative world of sound.

When he’s not busy remixing Bloc Party, or winning awards from Rockstar Games (Best DJ Mix 2003), Solid Steel (Best Mix 2003), and Scion (Free-Up-Your-Mix Finalist 2005), this bot can be found tearing the roof of your local dancehall, art gallery, fashion show, and house party with a fierce live-set. His sharp skills and diverse selection have landed him countless shows across country. Perhaps you’ve caught him on stage with RJD2, The Juan Maclean, Prince Paul, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Cosmo Baker, DJ Ayers, DJ Premier, or Mr. Lif. Or maybe you have unknowingly bobbed your head to his beats featured on Nickelodeon, MTV, the Disney Channel, Numark and LOGO TV. It’s no wonder some people call him “the second hardest working man in show business.”

At the beginning of 2008, Ruckus quietly infiltrated the iPods & Turntables of the world with his long-awaited debut album,  “Playing with Scratches” (Grease Records, 2008).  While the album didn’t quite reach the Pop Charts, his tracks nonetheless dazzled critics and DJ’s alike, gaining support from indie juggernauts KCRW (Los Angeles), WFMU (New York), KEXP (Seattle), WOXY (Cincinnati), and others, eventually catapulting the album into the CMJ Top Ten.  Tracks were also supported by The World Cafe (NPR), XM Satellite Radio, Rob Da Bank (BBC Radio 1), Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1), Solid Steel Radio (London), The Blend Corp. (Australia), Brooklyn Radio, and Spin Magazine.
