Rival Consoles joins LittleBig, preps EP for Erased Tapes
LittleBig are pleased to welcome Rival Consoles to the roster.
The London producer will release a new EP called ‘Sonne’ via Erased Tapes on September 15th.
The new release follows last year’s ‘Odyssey’ EP, and represents hit attempt to imbue his music with “colour.” He explained to RA recently “There are lots of instances of very colourful ambient sounds, which I took great care to create for each song, using various methods, from passing analogue synths through chains of effects to chopping up random sequences of recordings and forming tiny collages.”
Originally signed to the label after sending an unsolicited demo, West has found a home for his analog-focused music on Erased Tapes. His music as Rival Consoles has progressed from its IDM roots to approach the slow-building, atmospheric heft of the imprint’s orchestral ambient act, Winged Victory For The Sullen.
West will debut a new live set at a yet-to-be-announced London release show, and is also scheduled to play Seattle’s Decibel festival. Check out Sonne’s second track, the minimalist ‘3 Chords,’ below.
