Consisting of members Pessimist, Vega and Cooper, Ruffhouse are amongst the hottest property in modern drum & bass. With a timeless sound, bridging classic aesthetic together with cutting edge production values, Ruffhouse are quickly carving out their own groove within bass music.

Dropping their debut 12” for Alignment Records in the form of “Pellet” and “Classified”, Ruffhouse are setting the bar high. Like it’s namesake would suggest, “Pellet” is an armour piercing dance floor smasher. Echoing classic Virus sound of the 90’s with an edge and vibe that could only be found in 2012.

“Classified” delivers the goods in the form of drone bass yearnings and clinical percussive drum hits. Sonically stealthy with all the muscle to shake the speakers. An apt flipside to “Pellet” making this 12” a certified club favourite amongst dBridge, Loxy, Doc Scott and Skeptical.
