An amazing work here by Ryan Lee West, aka Rival Consoles. So much drama and energy conveyed through a sparse ambient landscape. I very quickly found myself lost in the amazing beats. I’m not sure if there’s a way for me to actually become a ghost w/o dying this Halloween, but if I do, I shall be listening to the track “ghosting” as I scare the crap out of teens.
Killer album, a must have for our ambient fans out there.
Rival Consoles is Ryan Lee West - a London based electronic producer signed to Erased Tapes who has his roots in rock music and is primarily a guitarist. His mission on his new album, Howl was to find the perfect balance between club music and something more personal to listen to at home. The albumâ€™s title track is made up from Westâ€™s experiments of wiring synths up to guitar pedals, the resulting noises were howl-like. These experiments also inspired a darker tone to the album. His less-is-more approach to composition fits in with the Erased Tapes ethos.
