ICMP Selector Playlist: Marcello Ruggiu

Listen to our latest Spotify playlist from Ableton Live and Music Production tutor Marcello Ruggiu...


From jungle to breakcore via underground electronica and dance music, our Ableton Live and Music Production tutor Marcello Ruggiu is a lover of beats, bleeps and bass. 

Since moving to London from his native Italy, Marcello has immersed himself in the capital's underground dance music scene, hosting events, playing live and DJing. If you're in London this month, then you'll be to catch Marcello performing under his Amousement alias at the Amersham Arms in New Cross on 15th November and the next Crux event at Five Miles in Tottenham on the 17th. While he's very active in London's nightlife, Marcello's passion for making music shines, not only after dark, but also in his ICMP classes. 

With so much going on, we managed to pin Marcello down for our latest playlist, this time delving into his current electronic inspirations. Listen below and found out why Marcello has made each selection below... ​​​

Noisia & Phace: 'Deep Down'

Noisia and Phace delivering an incredible uplifting tune. 

June Miller: 'Robots & Romans' 

June Miller is an amazing producer. Listen to these drums!

Current Value: 'Deadly Toys'

Current value is another amazing producer with incredible sound design skills. 

Squarepusher: 'Do You Know Squarepusher?' 

Bass and drums are the two elements that are driving this song by the amazing Squarepusher. 

Stazma the Junglechrist: 'Feed From Screen'  

Stazma the Junglechrist is a great french producer with a great ability to mix different styles in his breakcore music. 

Amph: 'My Girl' 

A remix of the famous 'My Girl' beautifully crafted by Amph. Amen breaks rush in 3 ... 2 ...1.

Phatworld: 'Is This For Real'

I never miss any release from the great Sheffield based label OFF ME NUT. 

Ruby My Dear: 'Gaviscon' 

Ruby My Dear is on the next level when it is about shocking your ears. 

Caparezza: 'Habemus Capa' 

Would be a shame not to mention one of my favourite tunes from Caparezza

Rolando Simmons: 'Walk on Strawberries' 

After all this fast beats let’s finally slow down with a great tune by Rolando Simmons.
