Next up on the list of featured artists on this great forthcoming release is somebody many of you will not be that familiar with inside our niche Transnational Bass scene, yet he is quite a big name within Portugal itself. He is also known worldwide and was a featured guest on that infamous Buraka Som Sistema Boiler Room Session where they pushed the creation of the Zouk Bass concept.
For his track on this release, DJ Ride turns in a hazy psychedelic electro dub monster that wraps up the release in astonishing style.
With 10 years behind the decks and 6 champion titles under his belt, plus a world champion title in 2011 as Beatbombers (with Stereossauro), scratch avantgardist, DJ, sound designer and producer, DJ Ride is an inherent part of the scene and a reference in the urban music.
With almost 100 gigs per year, shows from Lisbon to London, Servia to Poland, from dubstep to hip hop heads, in underground clubs or summer festivals …with huge crowds, opening for names such as Q-bert, Flying Lotus, Dam-Funk, A-trak, Gaslamp Killer, Steve Aoki, Moderat and being booked as turntablist for many bands from other musical backgrounds, he has caught the attention of global print media, tv, radio shows and web.
Ride name stands for quality, talent and innovation without skipping a single facet of DJing, whether it be records releases, club gigs, battles or recording. With his skills and strong musicality alongside with Beatbombers mission to push things to the next level, it’s always difficult to track ride’s fast moves but at the same time so easy to see the magic he put’s on everything he touches.
Check him out in these videos. One of him at that infamous Boiler Room Session & another of him rocking one of the (numerous) festivals he plays each year.
