Launched in April 2014, Midgar Records is a Berlin-based label pushing a deep and texturally rich techno sound. Its influences are evident in the latest release from Ruff Cherry, whose Ritual EP presents a sound that is as indebted to deep ambient tones as it is to dancefloor-focused techno. Ritual is the first EP from the Irish producer since 2013, when he released his Section 31 EP on A Sagittariun’s imprint Elastic Dreams. In support of the EP, Ruff Cherry and Midgar have passed along the exclusive cut “Endless World,” which, like its name, features an endless world of textures to get lost in. Wrapping itself around a syncopated rhythm, the track winds its way through dub-tinged bass tones, skittering percussion and haunting ambience, gathering momentum throughout, before slowing to a crawl at the end. Ritual is out this month, and “Endless World” can be download for free below.
