Originally founded with a live band, Raw City Rukus hit the ground running, playing a large number of shows and festivals at venues all over the nations capital. Including: - Groovin The Moo- Canberra, Foreshore Summer Music Festival 2011 & 2010, Summer Rhythm Festival, Academy Nightclub & Sharing the stage with the likes of Pharoahe Monch, Xzibit, Jean Grae, Koolism, Drapht, Illy, Horrorshow Spit Syndicate and Lowrider just to name a few. RCR released their debut EP 'Genesis' in early 2012. 2013 see's a fresh start for the group. Trading the live band for turntables and refining their sound over soulful and hard hitting production. This year is set to be a big one with music video's, collaborations and an EP on the horizon. Plus already smashing support slots for big name's Oddisee, Blu & Exile (USA) and Spit Syndicate. Bring da' Rukus.
