Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Huge summer festivals? Check. Massive sold out shows? Check. Faces melted across the USA? Check. Being one of Chicago biggest Dubslingers for years now? Check. Ruckus AKA Charlie Bro has been a busy man this year. As many of you may know, Ruckus started as a drum and bass DJ. In early 2008 the pulsating sounds of dubstep grabbed a hold of him with no turning back since.
Highlights include Ruckus destroying the Red Bull stage at the inaugural North Coast Music Fest in front of thousands of screaming bass heads and playing the first ever sold out Booty Halloween with DJ Dara and Eskmo. He's also shared the stage with a "who's who" of global talent including: Daedlus, The Gaslamp Killer, 12th Planet, Joe Nice, Rastatronics, Ginz, Metaphase, HULK, Mark Instinct, Claw, Nameloc, Richie August, Dara, Borgore, Bombaman, Eliot Lipp and Midnight Conspiracy "to name more than a few".
Ruckus is also involved in the founding of a new super group of Chicago talent, Tripp Syndicate. The Syndicate features the roaring bass of Nameloc, the terrifying mic ripping MC Anti and the diabolical DJ skills of Ruckus ripping up 4 decks.
2010 allowed for ventures into the business side of bass music. Ruckus holds down the A&R duties of major North America dub step label: Betamorph's drum step venture while also maintaining the status of the labels head DJ
What's next for this multi talented man? Be on the look out for more insane events with an ever growing crowd of fans. As a new generation of bass monsters arise and come to dominance and Ruckus will be right there at the top, maintaining a "semi-professional" approach while still partying with the best of them.
