Back To Mine with Ruf Dug

In the game for nearly 20 years, Manchester’s Ruf Dug, has never been one to rest on his laurels. In the last year alone he’s been nominated for Track Of The Year at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards, been made one of the hosts of NTS’s flagship daily Soup To Nuts show, resumed his DJ schedule in fine style, and launched an audiophile rave in Manchester that’s already attained legendary status.! Ruffy’s productions and remixes have graced labels such as  Rhythm Section, Shall Not Fade, Futureboogie, Music For Dreams, International Feel and WOLF music, and his own label, Ruf Kutz. And when it comes to playing out he’s pretty much done it all – from Pikes to the Panorama Bar, from Gottwood to Glastonbury, from Brilliant Corners to Barbarellas to Burning Man. As his brilliant rework of  Bianca’s 1990 classic, ‘Tabu’, drops on NuNorthern Soul, DMCWorld goes Back To Mine with Ruf Dug…


Bianca – Tabu (Ruf Dug’s Caribbean Dub)

Just cos your back to mine, it doesn’t mean the party can’t continue right???


Daniel Bell – Baby Judy

Daniel Bell - Baby Judy

Ultimate 5am track… heads down, eyes closed, even if you can’t move, this will MOVE U!


Ruf Dug – Head Band Dub

Ruf Dug - Head Band Dub - RK#3

Perfect afterhours tackle this – the super lysergic bass will trap everyone and by the time they realise they’re listening to Dire Straits it’s too late.


Theo Parrish – When The Morning Comes

Theo Parrish - When The Morning Comes


Don’t fear the sunrise at the afterhours Throw open the windows, stick this on and greet the new day.


Ricardo Villalobos – Waiworinao

Ricardo Villalobos - Waiworinao

Just loop up the first 8 bars for 6 hours. Nobody will even notice ‘cause this loop is perfect.


Ex Ponto – The Middle Path (Tolouse Low Trax Version)

The Middle Path (Tolouse Low Trax Version)

It’s a proper wonky beat like only Tolouse Low Trap can do and then it’s got LOADS of foul mouthed swearing. Perfect tackle for an afters.


Terri Crawford – Gunfighter

Terry Crawford - Gunfighter

Yes it’s true, I played this at Pikes 500 times in a row. Because it’s perfect.


Pure Silk – Nothing Like This


The OG is the ultimate back to mine yeah??? Let’s have a UK Lovers version then.


Don Cherry – Brilliant Action

Don Cherry - Brilliant Action

There always comes a time at the afterhours where you need to flush out all the wasters. There’s nothing like some Free Jazz to sort this… GET EM DON.


Jun Fukumachi – Morning Glow

Jun Fukamachi - Morning Glow

And this is how you close it out, make everyone think they’ve died and gone to heaven. Job done.
