Rygby is 21 year old producer, Joe Potts. Raised in the quiet surroundings of Stroud. He has been based in Bristol for the last 3 years, a move he made to get closer to vibrant music scene the city offers. Since his first label-backed release in 2012 he has put out 6 further EPs on a variety of labels including Encrypted Audio (UK), The Pack Recordings (NE) & duploc.com (BE) with the latter notably playing home to his first release printed to vinyl.
While mainly known for pushing a style reminiscent of the classic dubstep tracks that first introduced Joe to the scene, his overall output draws on a huge range of sounds and styles with everything from Grime to Jazz to the Gaelic Folk he grew up around playing their part.
We are pleased to Welcome Rygby to Studio Rockers and present a sublime four tracker. Things open up with the full frontal assault that is "Starship Trooper". Crunching beats, darting chunky slabs of synth and galactic stabs fire this one along. Next we get vocal with Medic MC on the vocals. Rolling bass grooves and locked on drums adding a solid backdrop.
"Problem Solvent" is next. Things take a leftfield wonk turn here with it alien like stabs and galaxy crushing bass. We close things off with the "Carta Magna", want a soundtrack to a space station opium dens? – you could do much worse than this.
