“Rhythmic danger in overdrive… Rootical rally-cry uproar.” - Simon Reynolds on DJ Ripley

Ripley has caused total dance mayhem in spaces like a re-purposed public lavatory underneath a street in East London, a
former commercial fishing ship off the cost of Rostock, an (initially) laid-back lounge in Oakland California, a half-squatted office space in downtown Riga, the basement of an Indian restaurant in Bristol, as well as warehouses and clubs in most places you’d think and some you wouldn’t.

wreckstep raggaphonics spill over and rumble under into dubdownbreak sound experiments and bounce back into nastybeast beats. Ripley’s fierce intellect and raw energy spark new uprisings and unseat preconceptions in the company of artists like Hrvatski, Kid606, Blevin Blectum, Dizzee Rascal, Kaffe Matthews, Bong-Ra, Criterion, Drop The Lime, and Dr. Israel.

 In the world of letters, Ripley also examines global property systems through the lens of law and history, shouting out
Scientist’s lawsuit against Greensleeves and the RIAA’s raid on Mondo Kim’s, while Grooves magazine cautioned listeners to miss her Ich Bin Defekt mix on Death$ucker Records at their own risk. Ripley wants everyone to dance.
