London-based electronic songwriter Ryan Lee West aka Rival Consoles is set to release his most personal work to date in the form of a mini-album titled Night Melody through Erased Tapes in August 2016. Coinciding with this new release is a very limited edition of his 2014 Sonne EP on colored vinyl. Continuing on from his Odyssey EP released in 2013, Rival Consoles creates atmosphere and space whilst exploring waves of sound and rhythm, and the power of color. With Sonne Ryan creates music to structure itself around a pulse, rather than the pulse being the defining point.

The title track begins with "a very subtle set of melodies that repeat almost without confidence, and then gradually give way to a huge collage of colour and power," as Ryan describes it. Not relying on a conventional beat, it's a prime example of how an analogue synthesizer can create the power and momentum of a rhythm section. From the distorted waves in "3 Chords," growing and shrinking, to the rhythmic waves of constant speeding up and then slowing down in "Recovery," it's the Moog Voyager, Prophet and tape delay that make up the core sound of the EP. Whilst tracks like "Helios," "Haunt" and "Think Tank" see West play live drums and acoustic guitar.
