“"This has made it possible to find myself in the music again, I am able to be even more concentrated since it's such a physical experience and fucking love it!" ”
Q&A with RDG about the SUBPAC:
What role does “feeling” play in the music you make and love?
For me, the whole aspect of feeling music is so important to understand the music i create, support and push. It’s physical and it’s a sound that should not only be heard -but rather experienced.
Has the SUBPAC changed the way you create, produce or mix music?
SUBPAC has definitely added some new ways of been able to go deeper into the surgery of the sub bass, as K Man would have explained it! Read More...
How could “physical audio” change our relationship to sound and music in the future?
I believe that all audible experiences should be physical. You should always priorities good sound and especially the lower frequencies. The physical aspect is already here, still, there is so many people haven’t experienced it properly, which only means that they have something good coming their way.
What excited you about the Feel SUBPAC project?
It’s gonna be exciting to check out all the musical projects that have been made with and for SUBPAC.
Born and raised in the cold northern Danish countryside, RDG was introduced to music from an early age through his father, and spent years as a kid collecting samples, playing with musical toys or listening to records – all of which continue to influence his productions today, through an incredibly vast sample archive and an exhaustive studio setup, both built up over the course of the past two decades.
With his relocation to Copenhagen as a teenager, RDG immediately dove into the underground music scene and heavily involved himself in music production, organised underground raves and put on nights at bars and clubs to further promote local producers, MCs and DJs. Read More...
Fast forward a decade and Ruben now successfully runs two record labels with over 40 releases combined, and has organised events at essentially every night club with a noteworthy soundsystem in Copenhagen, across multiple genres like dubstep, drum ’n’ bass, techno, juke, garage, grime and many more.
As a producer and DJ he has released and appeared on a handful of vinyl releases, toured North America and Europe, and has had his music featured on major public and pirate radio in the UK, US and Denmark.
Having dedicated a substantial amount of his waking hours for the last 10 years to keeping underground music in constant motion, RDG is not slowing down and continues to inject his contagious, positive energy in music production, DJing, event promoting, radio hosting, festival organization and much more.
