Innovative turntablist Ricci Rucker began producing under his own name in the early 2000s, releasing records intended as tools for scratch DJs and collaborating with fellow turntablists. In 2005, Rucker designed the Vestax Controller One, a turntable meant to be used as a musical instrument. Rucker remixed Jesse Boykins III and Exile under the name Ruckazoid, and by 2010 he was using the name exclusively. He began developing a solo style which combined his turntable wizardry with smooth vocals inspired by '80s and '90s R&B. Irish hip-hop label All City Records released the first Ruckazoid 12" in 2010. In 2015, DJ Shadow signed Ruckazoid to his Liquid Amber imprint and released the Scratchgod I EP. ~ Paul Simpson
