Ruckus Roboticus produces an incredible fusion of music that incorporates funk, hip-hop, and experimental electronica all in one — a unique sound that's wildly vivid.

The producer's career exploded when he self-released a remix of Bloc Party's "Hunting for Witches." Originally, the track was going to be released along with the Bloc Party single; however, the band didn't approve it as an official release, so he leaked it himself.

Ruckus Roboticus' debut album, Playing with Scratches, is an audio collage that incorporates many different samples. He calls it "part children's music, part hip-hop."
