S Ruston cut her teeth in the Bristol bass scene in the early 2000s. Playing anything that’s jackin’, pumpin’, voguey, UK, ravey, fast, or slow, she knows what you need and she’ll give it to you good. 

Back in the UK, S Ruston started organising secret warehouse parties in London and playing at seminal bass music events and major festivals such as Subloaded/Dubloaded, Glastonbury, Shambala, Bloc, and SXSW. 
Since 2010 she’s been Berlin-based, dividing her time between the studio and the decks.

As a resident of femme-forward party collective Lecken and luminary of Berlin’s queer sex-positive party scene, she’s made appearances at TrashEra, Riot, Hot Topic, Whole Festival, Pornceptual, Warning, and more.
S Ruston’s activities include co-founding the label One4Ho, which focused on 140 bpm driven music with female led creative input, as well as releasing both as a producer and vocalist on Houndstooth.

In 2012, S Ruston served as Zebra Katz’s DJ on his first European tour, and continues to make occasional appearances at his gigs. She’s also worked closely with artists Linards Kulless and Ursula Hutchinson on music videos and VJ/DJ collaborations. Recently, she contributed to a compilation put together by Trashera Berlin, which also features Jerome Hill, ELECTROSEXUAL, and Fabrizio Nocci.
