Growing up in a small town in Virginia, Ruddy Javier Paniagua was always somewhat disconnected from the electronic music scene. After years spent trying to break into post-rock with a number of different self-made bands, Paniagua began experimenting with electronic production in a move that he says stemmed from a desire to “do everything himself.” After taking on the Ruddyp moniker in 2011, Paniagua earned early acclaim for his chopped-up rework of Destiny’s Child’s Say My Name, quickly establishing himself as one to watch. Ruddyp gained further notoriety thanks to a self-titled split-EP with XXYYXX which dropped in 2012, and later, a split release with BEAR//FACE that featured reworks of A$AP Rocky’s PMW (All I Need), and Long.Live.A$AP. His first solo EP is set for release later this year.

Ruddyp’s exclusive mix for SSENSE opens with a screwed version of A$AP Rocky’s Fashion Killa, before pulling in his own production, Maybe. The mix also features tracks from Rustie, XXYYXX, and Yung Satan, alongside remixes from Ryan Hemsworth and Deebs.

I've blended some mind blowing melodic sounds from Cashmere Cat, Sweater Beats, Ta-Ku, Sinjin Hawke and other talented new comers in a chilly yet pumpy atmosphere, the mix is a journey through different styles of bass music with some surprises inside ;)
