Drumcode is thrilled to welcome back Victor Ruiz for his first label release in nearly two years, following two EPs ‘Freedom’ and the collaborative ‘Consciousness’ with Pig&Dan, plus a standout single ‘Love Story’ on A-Sides Vol.10, which made him the imprint’s most prolific contributor in 2020.
Since then, highlights for Ruiz include playing our Drumcode takeover at Warehouse Project, collaborating with Hannes Bieger on his acclaimed ‘Balance Presents’ album and joining the line-up for Time Warp Brazil.
His four-tracker ‘Beirut’ signalises another pivotal step forward for the São Paolo-born artist, the title track being a dedication to one of his favourite cities. Ruiz has always operated at the more emotive end of the techno spectrum and this opus exemplifies his ability to craft dramatic tension and beauty in equal doses. A classy EP with cuts to furnish the summer festival season.
