Ruth Flowers - Still Rocking (Club Edit)

Do not, for one second, think that I've forgotten about Ruth Flowers, she of the Euro-DJ stylings...she of the big beat bangers...she of nearly 70 years of age who caused quite a ruckus earlier this year when American media outlets began to pick up on the heat that she's been dropping in clubs for the past few years. Now, she's back with a dose of new music, and we've got nothing but love and props for her.

While the mainstreamers may have swept her under a rug after the initial "oooh looky wow" factor died down, Flowers kept at it, and the little beasts like us did a bit of digging today just to see what she's up to. And what'd we find? Well, she's got a new single out, Still Rocking, that was just released on July 5. How's that for timing?

 

The track once again finds Ruth behind the wheels...commandeering everyone in a late night dancefest. The single comes with 3 edits and 2 instrumentals and can be purchased here.

 

Next time you think you're feeling old...yeah, DON'T.

Introducing: Ruth Flowers

Whoever said you can't keep a good woman down obviously had the foresight to know that Ruth Flowers was soon to be hot on the DJ scene. She spins at the hottest clubs in Paris, wears some of the freshest duds, and she's called "Mamy" by those closest to her. See, Ruth is 69 years old...and she literally kills on the decks.

"It's a little bit glammy...a bit over the top, perhaps. But it fits the bill, I think", the softspoken sextagenarian quips about her musical styles. Influenced by her grandson's music she heard at his birthday party at a London nightclub. "I was dumbfound…there was such an atmosphere! It was so different from the parties I used to go when I was young. There was a real osmosis between the lights and the music, it really drove and made me feel so much younger."

 

Since the budding DJ was on pension, she had a lot of free time. Her grandson introduced her to a French producer and they hit it off immediately. With the help of his team, she began to book local gigs and now mans the music at hot spots throughout France. Up next for Ruth? Her debut single, Mamy Rock, is scheduled for an as-yet-to-be-determined release.

 

Watch part of her original web series, Behind the Decks, below. (I had no idea she was this legit when I joke-tweeted about her earlier this week.)
