RUDE JUDE-FROM PARIS TO THE UK WITH UKG

by | Dec 6, 2016 | MUSIC | 0 comments

Rude Jude is the hirsute dj, producer and multi-instrumentalist bringing UKG back to its bouncing glory. 

Rude had been in his native Paris where he was a regular on the dj circuit plying the wonders of UKG. After pushing the movement, he relocated to the UK recently to make a pilgrimage like journey to savour UKG from the home of the genre.

Since making the UK home, Rude has been dropping regular videos where our Parisian brother re-creates live some of the biggest UKG sounds from yesteryear. For those old enough there’s certainly a journey into heady beats of nostalgia when it was cool to hold just two fingers in the air-as a sign of appreciation while listening to cuts like, Never Going To Let You Go, Movin Too Fast (1999) and What’s it Gonna Be (2008).

Here he drops I Need To Know blessed with 4 mixes. The project leaves us in no doubt that that Rude and his compatriots on the project-Pallace, Lazy Flow and Tashi are aficionados of the dance genre. The opening track evokes old skool energy reminiscent of Madonna’s Vogue (1990) and that era of super models with absurd demands-‘why is no one cleaning my ass’?!

While there are four mixes the third mix is quintessential UKG  complete with a ridiculous drop followed by insane levels of bass-definitely like that.

Will be interesting to see how Rude follows up-we know that he has some projects in the pipeline so we will keep an eye out.
