Mauricio Ruiz

Session Bassist/Percussionist

Mauricio Ruiz on SoundBetter

Open minded session musician who loves playing any kind of music genre. 10+ years experience in bass/drums/guitar and formally studied orchestral percussion.

Specialized in playing electric bass and drums, I began playing electric and classical guitar more than 10 years ago. Formally studied orchestral percussion in Tijuana Youth Symphony, Tijuana Music School, Centro de Artes Musicales, and UABC University in Ensenada, mainly in snare, marimba, timpani, and latin percussion. Also been a teacher in a young orchestra for children.

My main instrument is the electric bass, which is what I'm playing with my current project that has recorded 3 albums and travel inside my country. In Entre Desiertos my main sound can be described as muddy and distorted, but I also love playing clean and melodic lines. Whatever the songs needs in tone, I will respect it.

I've had recorded and produced other projects from local singers, doing drums, bass, guitars, keys and vocals.

To pop, folk, rock, heavy rock, experimental, I'm very open minded with every music genre, and would love to help other musicians to sound how they want.
