After more than 15 years working as music journalist, this deejane from Madrid decided to launch herself into the clubs as a selector (2007).

Stardust, Siroco, La Boite and Specka are some of the clubs where she started her career. In 2012 she moved to Berlin, the heart of European electronic music, where she had a great reception, being present in booths such as Urban Spree, Kater Holzig (Kater Muke), Golden Gate and Brunnen70.

After two years, Ruth chooses Barcelona, a city in which she leaves her mark by visiting such emblematic venues as Moog, Macarena, LAUT and Razzmatazz. It is in Barcelona where she dares with Mots Music, her own music media. In addition to the Spanish booths (Ibiza, Mallorca, Bilbao, Plamplona…), Ruth is well acquainted with the scene in countries such as Portugal, Malta and Italy, where she has been able to show that her sessions do not stick to a single style, but are trips that range from postpunk and new wave to industrial techno, passing through EBM, electro and dark disco.

Her vision of her music leads her to join the visualist Katherine Scholz, with whom she leads The 3M Project, a multidisciplinary project that unites music and collages. Unstoppable, Ruth works alongside international artists including Client (UK), Light Asylum (USA) and Le Syndicat Electronique (France) as a promoter. Likewise, she was a programmer for the live shows of Asymmetrical Club (Bcn).

This vinyl lover has collaborated as a singer with Le Syndicat Electronique, Mynationshit, lvan Smoka and Tecib, to later form her own musical project, Mann of Seasons, a group that she leads together with Swesor Bhrater (Bruta Non Calculant). Mann Of Seasons releases its first LP in May 2022, “The Songs Of Innocence” (Unknown Pleasures Records), an album that navigates between neofolk, synth wave and new wave, being compared by the French press with bands like the legendary Dead Can Dance (4AD). She is currently working with other producers as In Aeternam Vale, Israel Padilla (Banshees Records) and Jørgen Thorvald.
