While we recently sung her praises in our Artists To Watch series, in all honesty, Berliner Dana Ruh has been going strong for nearly a decade now. On top of running the awesome Brouqade label, Ruh has dropped some deep and minimal gems for Cocoon, Buzzin’ Fly, and plenty of others. With her brand-new “Like a River” release with Anthea just out, we felt it was high time we took a look into her crates to she what she blows out at the weekend.


Amazing, powerful track on my own Brouqade label that I’m constantly getting asked about. I first heard about it a couple of months ago from a friend, and it was a secret weapon of mine for a while. Thank god we were able to sign it to the label and it’s out now!


A really hypnotic track that I am quite proud of, production-wise! It’s super-hypnotic with some nice peaks, too.


Amazing track for me—everything is just right here… the feeling, the hypnotic elements, the great arrangement! There is something really special about this track. I love it and the people do, too. It always creates a special moment on the floor.


After all the recent discussion surrounding Nina, don’t forget about the great music she’s been doing. This is a great tune—it works amazingly well on the floor and has a nice attitude. It’s also a really nice record to mix with!

Powerful track! Very functional and very clever in arrangement! A great track to mix with!

One of my favorite current labels. All the tracks have a certain attitude and a certain sound and are all very warm. You can play all the records in the series, but this is one I really like to use as a tool to bridge into another track.
