Fresh from the debut single and collab with Spearhead Record founder BCee – Sunshine on SIGMA’s relaunched Beats, Bass, Ruth Royall continues to light up the drum & bass world with the latest enchanter New Ride via Our Space.

From starting her career at 14 voicing the X-Factor video game to recording a jazz album in the famous Abbey Road Studios to ascending to smash hit drum & bass royalty, Ruth Royall has already had a richly diverse musical career and shows no signs of slowing down.

With a background in jazz and soul, the producer, songwriter, and vocalist’s unique musical style has led to opportunities from collaborating with heavyweights such as Pola & Bryson, Ekko & Sidetrack, and Nookie to joining legendary duo Fred V & Grafix on their 2018 farewell tour. In addition to fronting Paper Dragon, a Bristol-based DnB and House collective recently dubbed as “redefining modern artistry” by Nitelife magazine, Ruth Royall has landed critical acclaim for her solo work from BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Spotify New Music Friday, and UKF and received 2 nominations for the best vocalist at the Drum and Bass Awards.

The instrumental for New Ride was sent to me by Phonetic back in 2021. I absolutely fell in love with the track and decided I wanted to work on it. I’ve found myself doing a combination of co-production and collaboration on a lot of my music. I love how collaboration can spark new ideas and take my music to places I wouldn’t expect. I had a studio built in my garden by at the start of this year which has been an absolute game-changer, this is where I do most of my vocal recording and production.
