Recent collaborative counterparts, Ekali and 1788-L are among the many most alluring names on the digital agenda as of late. 1788-L, since his ascension by means of an auspicious function on REZZ‘s “H E X,” has up to now remained nameless, at the least by face. His off-kilter pressure of glitchy electro is distinguishable to even essentially the most untrained ear. Ekali’s fervent reception has landed him in some barely bigger arenas within the years since Skrillex remixed his “Babylon” unique.
By method of their all-but-“R U I N”-ous brainchild, the pair achieve scaffolding of each other’s diverging manufacturing kinds for a fancy and decadently maze-like sonic offspring. Drop one falls in 1788-L’s courtroom, with its grinding, stop-and-go, mid-tempo electro, whereas Ekali ensconces the second breakdown together with his invariably melodic DNA. Prophetic wind and piano synths be part of dizzying drum ‘n’ bass fills for a paradoxical supply that melts monotony in its tracks.
The two have been teasing the observe for a while, sprinkling it into their units all through Ekali’s Crystal Eyes Tour. Illenium provided up his edit of the observe forward of the discharge, bolstering anticipation for the unique. “R U I N”‘s launch comes with a Blade Runner/apocalypse-themed visible spearheaded by Quentin Deronzier.
