Chaotic experimental club tracks with hints of IDM.
Meine Nacht describes "Tengu" as "manipulated fucked-step," which is as good a place to start as any. It's a tangle of metal shards that occasionally form a rhythm, while lower-pitched sounds fray into abrasive basslines. It sounds like Ruane reverse-engineered records from the likes of Objekt and LOFT, then bashed them together. One section introduces a sound akin to one in Clipse's "Grindin'," before it all fades into an eerie drift. "IV (CF_BD)" feels ordinary in comparison, though even here few producers could match Ruane's level of detail and chaos. Tengu is a promising start for a new label.
