about

Back from the past! It's DJ Ruffty & Ciid with another 26 tracks, for twice as much audio as they brought y'all before in "Best Of The Ruffle Sisters Vol. 3" (known internationally as "Greatest Hits 2011-1992"). You might remember them for such classic hits as "The Amen Break", "Sick Guitar Solo", and- uh, I think they have one called "Qwod"? - among many others! Whether you're a long time fan, or a first time listener, you're sure to find something here for YOU! Listen to the music itself and/or read on these words to find out how.

DJ Ruffty & Ciid pledge to only let you listen to the greatest content they produce. Here you will find 26 tracks, each carefully selected, pruned, filtered, left out to dry, and tossed into a bin for months on end. The audio appearing here dates from as far back as 2010, although everything has been worked on up to and very much including 2016. This is the longest time span achieved yet for Ruffty Studios! We only hope to see this tradition of combining the old and the new, while presenting each in a continuous integration.

This time, DJ Ruffty takes the backseat driver while Ciid steers right into synth alley. Although it wouldn't be quite the same without the dj's staccato smashes of sound like "drum3", "Sick Guitar Solo 2013", or "Theme From Bosc", Ciid takes the real charm of today's production with pieces such as "Cosmic Excursion", "1955 In Review", and "Generator". The portfolio is still diverse as ever, with each contributing such unique takes as "Virtualized Whatever", and "Phones, Cameras, Talking", respectively.

Please look forward to the duo's next potential release, "Here Are The Absolute Greats Of Our Hits From Our Lives 2010-2099", slated to come out, as it says on the label, in the year 2099! No matter where they go, you can trust DJ Ruffty & Ciid to always bring along an open mind, and a microphone to record whatever noises they produce, incidentally hear, or otherwise accidentally create. Maybe, inside each of us, there's a little of DJ Ruffty & Ciid? Keep your ears open to any sounds out there, and you can be just like your favourite musicians!

Since you've read it this far, you'd be interested to know: there are two easter eggs about this album. Can you find them? It'll take more than just an ear, you'll have to do a bit of digging and eventually do the work on your own! Good luck, aural explorers. To help you figure things out without expending effort in the wrong places: 1) each easter egg is a similar principle, 2) solutions can be sourced entirely in this album, or in previous albums, all available on ruffty.bandcamp.com. Have fun!
