Daniel Ruane is a musical vandal, he confronts traditional electro and breaks the form to create experimental tracks. His tunes often incorporate, fast paced, maddening, uncontrollable beats. In contrast, a portion of his work also concentrates on ambient music.
He’s had a string of releases on labels like Natural Sciences, Infinite Machine and oqko, some collaboratively, but most recently being a five track solo EP, Twitch, which encapsulates his tenants and proves he’s a standalone artist.
Whilst his DJing schedule has taken him to Berlin, London, and shortly Liverpool and Leeds, Daniel’s next next venture will be the launch of his label, Failed Units.
Inviting him to our mix series, Daniel channels a fierce selection of sound influences that through the worlds of techno, IDM, and trance interspaced with occasional ambient flushes of bliss. Listen in full below.
