Ekali and 1788-L make their return with new music in 2019 collectively, on the glitchy and exquisite “R U I N.”
1788-L has been supporting Ekali on tour, and Ekali has been a supporter of 1788-L’s tunes since almost the start, so a collaboration like this was solely a matter of time. The result’s a spectacular show of sound design, filth, and sweetness.
I usually say that juxtaposition is certainly one of my favourite parts in music, inserting two opposing sounds or forces in opposition to one another to maximise the qualities of every to the utmost diploma. The similar applies for “R U I N,” whereby the tremendous mechanical and glitchy first drop is contrasted by the wildly lovely and melodic second drop.
The single is accompanied by a music video depicting some publish apocalyptic scene like one thing out of Blade Runner. Crumbled statues litter the huge wasteland, making for a one other fascinating distinction with the very synthetic sounds of the music it portrays.
Watch and hearken to “R U I N” under. If you’re in New York City, be sure you catch 1788-L at Kings Hall subsequent Friday, February 22. Tickets can be found right here.
