Ruff is a 20-year-old artist hailing from the New York City area. Combining influences from all facets of dance and pop music, Ruff‘s sound steadily adapts record by record with the goal of emotion always in mind. This is Ruff‘s debut single on Australia’s highly acclaimed Teamwrk Records.
Mikey Catanzaro (better known as MIKEY C) is a producer and DJ from Hartford, Connecticut. Influenced by the uplifting sounds of Odesza and future-bass styles of Flume, the American producer has found quick success with his own unique sound. Only one year after earning his Bachelor of Music degree, the Dutch record label, Spinnin’ Records, signed and released his remix of Two Friends‘ hit, ‘Just A Kid’. The track garnered support from Tiesto‘s Musicial Freedom, Big Beat Records, and more.
Lila McKenna is the final piece of the puzzle in terms of ‘Self Sabotage’. She is a singer/songwriter from Cleveland, Ohio who has amassed hundreds of thousands of streams over the past year. Used at the centrepiece for this vocal dance-pop track, Lila McKenna showcases her dynamic and impressive vocal range, delivering a wonderful performance on this single and proving why she has received much success in her career thus far.
‘Self Sabotage’ is a dance-pop track that opens with an atmospheric, country music-esque guitar riff immediately showing off the feel-good nature of this record. Combining the uplifting and melodic production styles of Ruff and MIKEY C with the euphoric vocals of Lila McKenna, the hook of the record brings soothing vocal chops, lush synth chords, and acoustic drums inspired by the sounds of rock bands from a century prior.
