Music is a craft that demands love, the purest kind, the ones that translates into complete devotion and full dedication, and the depth, the intensity of such commitment result in great talents, works and a careers. First of all, Leonardo Ruas is a DJ deeply in love with the artistic form he adopted as his and this is expressed in all of his realizations and achievements, as well as pours all over his sets.

These are propelled by the vigor of a perennial joviality that doesn’t bindle respect chronologisms or generations, his performances are energic journeys, filled with musical references, all very well sewn together through his refined choice of tracks and the skills shown in each transition. Sophisticated and fun selections which conduct us with ease throughout a very singular and personal rhythmic narrative, a natural outcome of a quite precocious musical formation, deeply grounded in the solid classic foundations of Brasilian popular music branching out into the elaborate contemporary resources of House Music.

Thus, it becomes clear how Leonardo Ruas manages to imprint a strong personality, as captivating as it is exciting, onto all of his efforts and endeavors. Somewhat that spreads over all of his mixes, his most recent attempts at producing or each new edition of his authorial events, dedicated to the greatest loves of his artistic life: Soul.Set, a haven for the lover of authentic House Music in a uncompromising and festive environment, and Patropi, bastion of promotion for quality traditional Brasilian music for generations that, otherwise, would hardly have contact with it.

So, his life i regulated by that very passional element that is inherent to the artistic universe: Leonardo Ruas lives off music and for music. First and foremost, he lives it. And it constantly and vibrantly pulses in his sets, driven by his irreverent versatility, the same way it pulses in his veins.
