Mister Ruiz

Mister Ruiz is swiftly becoming a streaming sensation. With his instantly recognizable mix of house and electronic styles, the Brazilian artist has taken Spotify by storm. With millions of streams on his existing tracks, this DJ and producer show no signs of stopping any time soon.

There’s only one word to describe Mister Ruiz’s output in the last year, and that word is prolific. His first track, “Love Alive,” dropped in September 2020, and, going by his YouTube, Spotify, and SoundCloud accounts, he’s been hard at work ever since. He’s been pumping out new songs like there’s no tomorrow, but we’re certainly not complaining. In that short period, he’s released an astonishing ten new singles, including tracks like “Feel Only Love,” “Talk to Each Other,” and “Godzilla.”
The pandemic has had a remarkable effect on every industry, and that’s just as true for musicians as it is for bars, restaurants, shops, and cinemas. Without the prospect of live audiences, many artists have expressed difficulties in matching their usual level of output. With that in mind, it’s even more outstanding that this 24-year-old artist has appeared, almost out of nowhere, in that short time.
What’s next for Brazil’s newest up-and-coming star? Is there more to this musician than meets the eye?

Q: How important are lyrics?

Lyrics are essential; it’s what can save or ruin a song.

Q: Do you ever sing while taking a shower or having a bath? Why is this popular? Do you sing in tune?

Oh yeah, what could be more human than singing in the bathroom? It’s the best place in the house for out-of-tune people like me to sketch that kind of talent (lol)
