Named after RUDDA's late grandfather's middle name, 'St John', encapsulates that melancholic hopefulness that he wraps in club-ready energy.
Paying an ode to the current UK garage scene, the South-West London artist incorporates elements of 2-step and garage in an effortless manner before sprinkling in the finishing touches of Breaks and House. With finishing touches of soulfully pitched vocals and floating soundscapes, 'St John' can only be described as a track that serves the emotions and feelings of 'getting lost in the dance'. Inspired by Calibre’s “Feeling Normal” album and work by Conducta and Sammy Virji, RUDDA, in turn, steps into the ring with punch and panache.
Talking on 'St John', RUDDA said;
“I have an interest in the connections between the different dance genres, the similarities and differences in how they relate and rely on each other is something I aim to explore in my music. I love putting music out and seeing it be enjoyed in any capacity, whether in a rave, on a beach or in the Brixton WH Smith by the station. The current UK scene features such a wide range of sound and I hope to contribute to the culture in some way or another with my releases!”
