RJA39 : Chef De Party

The final Ruffjamz episode comes from the hardest working man on the Glasgow club scene.

At just 33 The Earl, aka Chef De Party is already something of a veteran of the Scottish club-scene, having been involved in promoting and DJing at many esteemed club-nights in Scotland's capital. Chef is now making a mark for himself in Glasgow after a recent re-location, setting up his Forever Cookin' promotions business which is working closely with institutions such as The Sub Club, Melting Pot and La Cheetah as well as bigger events such as Wee Chill and Electric Frog. His huge passion for forward thinking deep house and heart-warming soulful sounds are also proving to be popular as the Solid Gold Safari all-dayer he ran at The Halt Bar with DJ Dribbler every Saturday attested. Look out for news of a string of brand new Safari projects coming for 2012 on both sides of the country.

RJA32 : Daniel Solar

The man responsible for Dikso Recordings and plenty of top-notch mid-tempo productions drops a fine selection for Ruff Jamz.

Originally hailing from Hannover but now residing in Berlin, Daniel has been making music of various styles for over seven years. However it's only recently that he's found a new audience with his slew of funk-assed mid-tempo disco jams doing the damage across many a floor. Watch out for his new EP on Undertones and further material on Dikso as proof.
For the mix he ups the pace and delivers a floor-friendly mix of deep house and discofied edits. Braw.
