Portland, Or, United States
Portland's trans-continental groove maniac.
Spinning world beats at parties the early 90s, and a Hookahdome and Dustfish favorite at Burning Man, GlobalRuckus has never been afraid to play songs outside of most DJ's sphere. Favoring high energy world party music or perhaps the type of music you'd hear at ethnic weddings, he works the dance floor into a frenzy playing klezmer, Balkan, calypso, New Orleans brass band, mariachi, bhangra, cumbia electro-swing, and more. His immense & ever growing music collection now includes cross-cultural mashups and remixes of traditional tunes that have left audiences sweaty and exhausted around the globe, including Mexico, Nepal, Tibet, Turkey,Geneva, London, Johannesburg, Sydney,Shanghai and Beijing . As a Portland ambassador of global beats he also hosts touring international sound DJs and producers at events in Portland, including dunkelbunt, Max Pashm, Gypsy Sound System, Filastine, Joro Boro, Sidecar Tommy.
