Shall Not Fade make a very warm welcome to the original tropical cyber-punk, Ruf Dug. The Manchester veteran joins the label for it’s 51st release, 4 tracks brimming with Ruf Dug’s wigged out, balearic energy, one of which is a gorgeous remix from the unstoppable, Shanti Celeste. With a sound that’s hard to pigeon-hole, his role as vibe purveyor is impossible to deny. Over a decade of producing as Ruf Dug, aside from releasing on his own sought-after Ruf Kutz imprint, he’s graced Unknown To The Unknown, Rhythm Section and Music For Dreams, and many more esteemed labels with his midas touch.

‘Addicted’ is a feel-good bubbler - sun-soaked keys, bubbly synth and velvet vocals from the talented vocalist Danielle Moore mixed with a tinge of Ruf Dug’s love for retro sounds glimmering through Peach Disc’s boss and party-starter Shanti Celeste gives ‘Addicted’ a glistening euphoric rework; pacey, wigged out and a bunch of fun - a sound with which she is synonymous. Next up, ‘Manc Sunset’ is a stripped back broken beat number - ravey notions meet dream house vibes. Bringing ‘Manc Sunset’ EP to a close, ‘Lo-Fi Roller’ is a brain-melter - bugged-out vox and kickin’ beat summon that deep in the dance tingling feeling, one to get lost in!

"Manchester is renowned for its grey skies but it’s also home to some of the most gorgeous sunsets; the light gets in more often than the cliché-mongers would have you believe.

This release hooks into these sentiments; a homage to the Manchester I grew up in - gritty, counter-cultural, moody - but always with room for a little dusky sunshine”
