Hailing from the Dirty D (aka Dayton, OH), Ruckus Roboticus is a mastermind at fusing many genres of music into one piece of sheer magic. Not only is he experienced in remixing for the stars (heard that Bloc Party remix?), he has been on stages with mounds of notorious DJs. Not to mention he can be heard on Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel. He must be busy. His new solo album, “Playing with Scratches,” was released in 2007 and portrays a “semi-autobiographical” story. Read on for why he loves the city he grew up in.
