Episode #049 - Rude 66

Oh yes. We've got one of Bunker's most prolific producers and executioners on the show this week. It's Rude 66 in the mix!!
Rude (real name: Ruud Lekx) has been making a big name for himself since the early 90's with his dark and raw signature sound. From acid techno to brutal electro and even weird space age electronica, his sound played an important part in the development of the Sound of the Dutch Westcoast. Ruud always stayed true to natural aesthetic of his trademark Bunker sound and this also brought him to release on such notorious labels like I-F's Viewlexx, his own Vynalogue, Acid Planet and DJ TLR's Crème Organization since the early 00's. What a lot of people are not aware of, is that he is also an avid vinyl collector and a superhuman selector.

We've been loyal listeners of his Cosmic Overdrive show on Intergalactic FM for quite some time now. Every monday evening, he hosts his show directly from his 666 lounge, playing all kinds of good music. From Velvet Underground specials, to amazing krautrock and wave sessions, there is a lot to be learned from a man with his knowledge. He's been such an important inspiration to us in recent times, that we just had to invite him to the show and present him to our audience in return. And what a treat it has become!

This exclusive mix is called 'the corners of the grey room' and covers many, many kinds of territories. We could try to describe the mix any further, but it would simply do unjust. It's one hell of a journey that one has to experience all by himself. So without any further ado, we'd like to introduce you to the world of one of our most favorite honest selectors of this very moment: the world of Rude 66. Enjoy!!
