RIVAL CONSOLES RELEASES PERSONA

RIVAL CONSOLES RELEASES PERSONA

London based producer Ryan Lee West, aka Rival Consoles dropped his brand new album Persona last Friday. The 12 track affair sees West employ a more rhythmic approach than he has on his previous four albums although having said that on his last EP, Night Melody that was accentuated somewhat. Analog heavy synthesisers abound and combine with a depth of instrumentation impressive in scope and ambition. There’s little doubt that with the variety on offer across Persona hour long length repeated listens will prove rewarding. West released three singles leading up to the record, the last being the incredibly affecting transcendental ‘Dreamers Wake’. Listen to that below and check out the first two, the beatless contemplation of ‘Untravel’ with its Misha Shyukin video and the inexorable march of ‘Unfolding’ where beat and melody spin off in noticeably different directions. Persona is out now on Erased Tapes. Get a copy here.
