Premiere: Daniel Ruane’s New Single Sounds Like an Artefact From Outerspace
Ruane's 'Tengu' EP will kick off the label arm of Meine Nacht.
Both Ruane and Meine Nacht label head Breakwave share a forward-thinking out-of-the-box mindset when it comes to music and the way it’s presented, an aesthetic that can be found in Ruane’s intellectual, sci-fi sound design and Meine Nacht’s inspired venue choices—Meine Nacht events have taken place in spaces such as an old supermarket, a bakery, art galleries, a factory canteen, and an old police station. Now, the pair join forces on Tengu, Meine Nacht’s inaugural EP.
The title track opens euphorically with a set of otherworldly bleeps and awe-inspiring atmospheres, before Ruane piles on his notoriously frenetic rhythms and alien sounds—it’s a track that constantly morphs and warps its way through seven head-spinning minutes. From there, things get even deeper and weirder with “IV (CF_BD),” a track that plays out like a score to a battle between two extraterrestrial beings.
Tengu can be ordered now on limited-edition dubplate or digitally from here, with the title track streaming in full below.
