We're thrilled to present the boundary-hopping, internationally-minded luminary DJ Rupture!
You won't find another musician as agile and reckless as DJ /rupture. He's performed in over 25 countries, released records on Soul Jazz & Tigerbeat6, DJ'ed in a band with Norah Jones, done two John Peel Sessions, and was turntable soloist with the 80-member Barcelona Symphony Orchestra. Rupture's fans include Robert Plant and that hot person you saw on the street yesterday but were afraid to talk to. What's Rupture sound like? A border-crossing bass visionary.
His dynamic live sets simultaneously partyrock and suggest complex political undertones. A recent New York Times review called Rupture “a thoughtful pipeline for music from countless distant and obscure outposts.”
Each Monday evening from 7-8pm, Rupture hosts a radio show on NYC-area FM station WFMU, 91.1 fm, featuring lots of international exclusives and live guests. You can listen online & stream the archives. Rupture's show is re-broadcast weekly on local FM stations in Belgium, France, Germany, and Croatia.
Rupture also runs Soot Records, an independent label with impeccable curation, dedicated to international urban music.
