Ruoho Ruotsi is the musical moniker of iroro, a composer and producer based in San Francisco. His music is largely improvisatory in nature, nourished by interests in natural progressions, reverberant bass accents and inter-wreathed textural deployments. His sonic jaunts draw upon the visceral aesthetics of dub, techno, garage and impractical melodic leitmotifs of experimental electro-acoustics, fusing them into imaginative new musical opportunities. His music has been described by some as “vaporous”, “aching and expansive” and by others as a “wicked dub abstraction” or as “Jamaica-meets-Detroit with jazz legend Eric Dolphy at the helm”.

In 2006, Ruoho Ruotsi won an international BBC Radio 1 remix competition , reversioning Steve Reich’s seminal piece “Music for 18 Musicians”, leading to CD & 12” vinyl releases on Warner Bros. Records (Nonesuch).

Ruoho Ruotsi has released a number of 12” vinyl records on de’fchild productions (San Francisco), SKOR Records (Los Angeles) and done remixes for Auralism Records (San Francisco), ZeroG Sounds (Boston) & Thoughtless Music (Toronto). He has performed live at the Winter Music Conference (Miami), Decibel Festival (Seattle) as well as numerous underground venues across North America.
