like the perfect meeting point between jon hopkins & tim hecker, the London-based producer, Ryan Lee West, has delivered an electronic masterpiece where he continues to search for a balance between home listening & the dancefloor.
opening with the title-track (without doubt one of the highlights of 2015), the album explores a wide range of emotions; from the dissonant eruptions & primal rhythms in 'Howl', to the mournful improvisations of '3 Laments', which features a sample of his own voice. the esteemed erased tapes label's first ever signing is Foremost a guitarist, growing up listening to rock rather than club music & here he has adopted a darker set of tones across the whole album. "I try to create atmosphere & mood throughout with a less-is-more approach to composition. I'm always trying to find an exciting reaction from a few ingredients, because that is magic to me". magic it is indeed!
