Despite the challenges of the Covid pandemic, Rubi Du (FKA as Silva MC) has been keeping focused and working diligently through these difficult times to keep her flow on, making fresh tunes with her talented peer-group, and looking forward to being able to perform live once more.
Now this empress of heavy basslines and melodic vocals blesses us with a smoking hot new track called ‘BACK UP’.
Produced, mixed, and mastered by up-coming prodigy IceyGhosts (Van Zyl Wagner), the two paired up to deliver a fresh, smokey banger about always having ‘Back Up’ – “something a lot of us have had to learn the hard way in recent years”, says Rubi. “We’ve all had a moment or two where we didn’t have any back up, and this is just a reminder to back up your back up!”
The riddim heavy, bouncy dancehall / hip hop tune is a testament to Rubi Du’s versatility and exuberant style which invokes her Caribbean heritage and Rastafarian upbringing.
“Icey is really good at producing beats that bring out the best flow in me. When I first heard the riddim, I texted him straight away telling him not to show it to anyone else because I love it so much hahaha”, says Rubi.
Working with IceyGhosts was a fun, fast and easy collab experience for Rubi Du, saying “We have such good studio chemistry it only took us a couple of house to record the track, and we both knew then and there we had to share it. I’m really happy with the result.”
Renowned for her sultry vocal, infectious delivery and electrifying live performances, Rubi’s unique and unforgettable style of South Pacific reggae, drum n bass and hip-hop flavours ensures Rubi Du’s sovereignty over the New Zealand dancehall scene reigns supreme.
