Ruby Savage (GB)
On the horizon with a bag full of warm eclectic grooves as well as straight up pumping beats.
Since moving from her hometown Amsterdam to London in 2007, Ruby Savage has worked behind the counter at Honest Jon’s Records and managed record label Sounds Signature, where she also created the Wildheart Recordings sister label. Much of Brownswood Recording's recent success has been down to her stewardship as label manager (2016-20) while solo exploits have taken her to the dance floor with her In Flames post-punk disco party, a monthly on NTS and bopping through the booth of a large number of London’s most well respected clubs including Oval Space, Phonox, 5 Miles, Pickle Factory, Giant Steps and The Village Underground.
Born in Amsterdam to English and Surinamese parents, Ruby Savage was raised on a mantra of “freedom, healing, peace and power in music”. From her mother she inherited an appreciation for the eclectic – from Fela to Miles to Chopin and The Supremes while her spiritual connection to music, rhythm and dance came through her Surinamese father- a singer, percussionist and Obiaman centred around the Winti religion.
