Inspired by youthful dalliances with IDM and Dance music, Ryan West Lee aka Rival Consoles has grown to forge a sound that’s based around a careful fusion of analogue equipment and real instruments. The resulting music has been electronically based but focused in textures rather than beats, placing West in his own rarefied air on the standout label Erased Tapes. His latest offering for the label comes in the form of the six tracker ‘Sonne’. Made of tunes to get lost in, its West’s finest dive into absorbingly colourful ambience thus far and marks his creative zenith.
