Described by Nusic as ‘suave, soulful and charismatic’, Rudi sequences a seemless song-to-song flow in his live sets to keep the audience dancing -much like a DJ does. Luscious synths, killer drums and infectious hooks are signatures of Rudi’s sound. His debut EP was an unmistakable invitation to the dancefloor: nostalgic but feeling anything but dated. (Leftlion)
Alongside his band, Rudi will be showcasing new material from his upcoming EP.
