Under the monikerbhides young, elusive electronica producer and drummer Izaskun González. Her music blends different genres, powerful compositions, jazz-influenced experiments, pop melodies, abstract rhythms, synthetic textures, compressed and distorted noises, and endless layers of vivid, imaginary sounds used to build artificial environments where you can feel unpredictable emotions. RRUCCULLA’s talent is even more evident when this unparalleled artist plays acoustic drums live to her ultra digital music. RRUCCULLA’s musical vision has taken her to play in renowned Spanish musical festivals such as Primavera Sound, SXSW, Sonar, BBK Live, Lapsus Festival and LEV Festival among many others. She has also opened for such important international artists as American Football, Iglooghost and Superorganism.
The refreshing arrival of this young producer in the music scene happened in 2016, at a prestigious Spanish music competition; she won all the prizes that night. Very soon, RRUCCULLA was acclaimed as one of the most promising new artists in the Spanish scene. Before her first public appearance, she claimed to have recorded almost a dozen albums, secretly scattered around the World Wide Web under different artistic alias. As RRUCCULLA, she has released six albums between 2015 and 2018, each of them under different musical visions. That includes the compilation “Early Sound Sketches”.
Besides, the non-conforming artist recently released an ambient piece called “Safe Nooks”, which she describes as “getting inside a secure virtual reality to chill a little”. Bird sounds designed with synthesizers, human voices that sound like sea waves and shiny textures are some of the noises included in this sound trip.
She is not only a highly creative musician, but she also is in charge of the visual component, creating fascinating images and collages for the sleeves of her songs and albums. Moreover, one of the most moving sides of RRUCCULLA is her very special performance as a drummer and percussionist. This is showcased in “Istripuak”, an album of experimental drum solos which also features Chris Egan (Chk Chk Chk, Solange, Blood Orange).
Originally from Barakaldo, RRUCCULLA keeps on creating art in her secret lair, releasing new music regularly and expanding even more the concepts of her unique sound. Her most recent release ‘S HuSH’, defies every musical genre with her particular musical approach, and it has been very well received by very important blogs and musical websites such as Pitchfork, The New York Times, Stereogum or XLR8R, which consider RRUCCULLA an emerging artist to be taken into account.
