Comedian Rudy Ray Moore, better known as the affluent pimp Dolemite from the 1975 film ‘Dolemite’, has passed away in his Ohio home at the age of 81.
Moore, whose actual name was Rudolph Frank Moore, passed away Sunday from complications of diabetes, his only child and daughter, Yvette “Rusty” Wesson, told us.
Rudy Ray Moore was also known as the “king of the party records” and released many comedy records throughout the 1960s and 1970s, developing a style even more rude and explicit than contemporaries like Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor. This kept him off of television and major films, but cultivated an enduring fan base. He also guested on Big Daddy Kane’s CD Taste of Chocolate, released in 1990.
The 2 Live Crew used Rudy Ray Moore’s records as scratch samples on their early work; most notably on “Throw The Di*k.”
Dolemite is survived as well by his mother Lucille who is 98-years-old.
“Serato and Ableton are happy to announce a partnership, which will pave the way for the future of Digital DJing.
With shared artist rosters from hip-hop (DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Nu-Mark, A-Trak) to electronica
(Paul Van Dyk, DJ Sasha), both Ableton Live and Serato Scratch Live are renowned as the premier
performance platforms in clubs around the globe.
While Serato’s Scratch Live excels in vinyl emulation, music library control and lightning quick hands-on
scratching, Ableton Live provides the tools for production, on-the-ﬂy remixing and beat creation.
“Ableton and Serato take different approaches to modern musical performance,” says Ableton CEO
Gerhard Behles, “But both companies live by the philosophy that software should be straightforward,
easy to use, and most importantly, reliable and stable onstage and in the studio. Ableton has never had
an answer for the DJ who wants vinyl control, and rather than try to emulate what Serato do so well, we
simply make sure that our products work well together.”
Serato Audio Research CEO Steve West agrees. “After years of talking together, we’re thrilled to be
working with Ableton. It’s exciting to think about what we can offer to DJs and producers: the ability to
go beyond just spinning records and add a personal stamp to the music they play.”
Just where this Serato and Ableton collaboration will take us has yet to be seen but one thing is clear:
the worlds of DJing, remixing and production for artists worldwide have changes ahead.
Ableton develops technology to inspire creative people. Since the company started in 1999, Ableton has attracted an extensive and highly committed community of musicians, composers, and DJs worldwide. Currently, Ableton counts about one hundred employees in its Berlin and New York ofﬁces.
The company has received outstanding press, awards and customer feedback since the unveiling of Live in October 2001.”
