    RUFF early 1989 in collaboration with his cousin Mark B, decided to form their first band, IN A LOW VOICE, the name had been chosen randomly pointing the finger of a vocabulary. They bought their first instruments Emu, Ensoniq, Alesis and other equipments, which had to pay by instalments. The Techno Pop of Depeche Mode had acted as bait, in fact, at the beginning of their career In a Low Voice often played their covers. After you have found their right groove, in 1989 recorded a first demo tape noting a discreet regional success and followed by concerts in Canton Ticino (CH) and in Northern Italy.
    In 1990, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Ian Curtis death, the famous leader of the band Joy Division, participate in a compilation of covers choosing to remake "A Means to an End" with the collaboration of their friend guitarist known under the name of Cele.
    The song is transmitted by the Swiss National Radio Network 3 noting a great success. Gerand G later joins the band, which will alternate with Mark in the role of singer and keyboardist. They will create new tracks with a softer style that recalls the sound of the Talking Heads, and some previous songs will be revisited and remixed.
    Unfortunately, in 1991, Mark and Gerard left the band to pursue other professions. Ruff begins a period as soloist; contaminated by the new trend Break Beat, between 1993 and 1997 creates some tracks under the name of ELECTRO PLASMA and founded a new studio called PLASMA, his sonorities become harder and technology.
    In 1996, Ruff knows casually Klaus, DJ had performed in various clubs in Europe. So began a collaboration to create new songs tend to Disco House.

    BEAT MACHINE Later debut album was recorded a remix performance of a famous song by Herbie Hancock renamed "Thriller Jazz".
    In early 2006 Beat Machine have composed two new singles "Free My Body" and "Do You Funky", the latter characterized by beautiful arrangements of brass.
    After two years of break Maurizio M, a piano teacher and friend of Ruff, asked him to compose a remixed version of his vinyl mix of Garage House a little dated, so from the studio Plasma comes out Remixed version of "Movin".

    AL.E is active in the music business since the early 70's, he recorded his first album in 1979. Until now has participated in more than 250 products of jazz both as musician and producer.
    Born to be a good drummer, lately has been fascinated by electronic percussion and groovebox, so that now it can’t be separated from these machines.

    DJ RUFF since 2010 is the new alias of Raffaele A, it was created for some productions of House mixed compilations. Occasionally collaborates again with AL.E, who is working for a new project called KILLJOY SQUAD. Last year he composed for them a song "Intro" for the Live Tour 2012.
