Post-Punk Funk | Ruby Savage (UK)

In an igniting DJ set, this UK performer navigates listeners through the sounds of a unique stream of dance music. Taking note from the incredible DJs that passed through London’s underground club scene and the influence reggae had on UK punk and dub, Ruby Savage plays anything from warm eclectic grooves to straight-up pumping beats.
