More in Ruby My Dear
Ruby My Dear, aka Julien Chastagnol, is a producer, songwriter and live performer who fuses melodic electronica, IDM and jungle to create a highly inventive and musical brand of breakcore. His tracks mix dream-like atmospheres and haunting melodies with sharp, complex rhythms, to take the listener on a constantly evolving journey through his unique sonic universe.
Julien started his Ruby My Dear project back in 2010 with the release of his DJ Shadow’s “Building Steam with a Grain of Salt” remix, out on his own label, Reconstruction Productions. Now, four years later, he has produced 8 EPs on both Peace Off and Acroplane and 2 full length albums on Ad Noiseam.
Performing live is also a large part of Juliens arsenal. He brings his intricate production to the stage to rework his studio pieces so naturally that it seems effortless. He is captivating and engaging to watch on stage as he blends sonic beauty with live energy.
Notable appearances have been at the Berghain, Glastonbury, Bang Face, Maschinenfest, Fusion Festival and club events in every major city throughout Europe.
In 2014 Julien joined forces with a Toulouse artist, Lisa Chabbert, to shoot a movie “Jitter Room” and has completed a new collaborative EP with Igorrr.
In November 2016 comes a new Ep, Strangers in Paradise, on Prspct Recordings.
