Portland, OR based trans-global groove maniac GlobalRuckus scours the four corners of the earth for hot emerging electronic and traditional sonic gems and distills them into pan global dance frenzy elixirs. Specializing in Balkan beats, Arabic hiphop, nu-cumbia, electro swing, Tropical, bhangra, moombahton, and danchall with the added spices of banda, samba, kuduro, and any other culturally rich sounds that engage him, you're guaranteed a wild ride on the dancefloor with sets that range from high energy to slow and sensual. The last year and a half has seen him perform at a vast array of genre-bending events including Electro Swing Club - London, bass nights in Johannesburg and Beijing, tropical nights in Shanghai and Sydney, Balkan beats nights in Brussels, Vienna and Holland and many more at various festivals and events around the US including of course Black Rock City (Sacred Spaces, Hookah Dome, Root Society, Dustfish).

    @Mugsy Kudzu: I'm pretty sure this is a Zeb the Spy from Cairo track. I tried to find the specific name, but haven't so far.

    @Mugsy Kudzu: It's Movits! (from Sweden). I think it's the track off the Swing Diskoteka compilation - Vals På Vinkelgränd, if I remember correctly.

    Holy hello Sarah, this track is so powerful, it brings tears to my eyes. Always have been a fan, but so impressed by this track. Looking forward to big things ahead for you all. I've created a new soundcloud set list category just for your sound.... Future Classic Rock. Go get em.

    Sacred Spaces was a Burning Man camp that had lots of intentional workshops and sacred geometry, as well as great music at night. Last year I played there after Random Rab and Emancipator. Macpro may be able to better explain. Here's one picture from google images... http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweendo/7936908230/

    This is fantastic, looking forward to the day that you are sharing these or selling them. Dancefloors in Portland Oregon and up and down the west coast USA need this.
