Early this month the London’s electronic collective Rude Audio released their new Noise Redux EP via Zirkus Records, and it’s a wildly interesting and groovy offering, rife with inventive dub-wise electronica.
The core of the South London-based collective are Mark Ratcliff (whose releases have been played by the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Laurent Garnier, BBC Radio 6’s Nemone and Gideon Coe); Owain Lloyd (mixing engineer for everyone from Oakenfold and Weller to Niall Horan) and Dave [The Rave] Brennan (ex-The End recordings and key player at tech house dons’ label, Bombis).
The team of Rude Audio has a history of putting on underground parties with no dress code, just grooves and spacious sonic flourishes for the alternative electronic tribe. Like the five tracks on the EP, the group’s new single “To The Sun” sports swirling electronica that’s flecked with Middle Eastern and Indian influences while retaining a fervent commitment to the dubby end of the spectrum.
The EP also includes a remix by Rich Lane, one of the best underground remixers and producers in the UK’s electronic music.
