The Death of Rave is buzzing to present Rian Treanor’s 2nd EP of pointillist footwork and hyperchaotic garage deviations nearly a year since his nerve-sparking debut. 
 
Pattern Damage demonstrates an increased spatial awareness whilst revealing a skizzy taste for hi-tech noise torsion as much as lush, raving, modernist hooks in four crisply diffracted derangements. 
 
The EP’s four cuts pursue angular mutations of 2.1-step and and early Warp techno into faster BPMs and colourfully chromatic, sidewinding structures, all driven with a breathlessly forward, quicksilver style that’s entirely Rian’s own and with few comparisons in the current field. 
 
Operating exclusively at a signature 150bpm temporality, the Pattern Damage EP finds Rian both opening out and refining his sound, greeting you with the brutalist, grimy n0!se of Pattern_A1, which sounds closest to SND or Errorsmith’s most oblique twisters, before the dub chords and skittish rhythms of Pattern_A2 recall Autechre getting off at Niche Club (R.I.P.) and Damage_B1 comes off like a giddier, footworking answer to Hyph Mngo before Damage_B2 unfolds a super cute and tricksy origami syncopation. 
 
By splicing the syncopated swing ’n parry of Sheffield’s speed garage sound at +8 with the whirlwind flux of Chicago footwork, Detroit jit and the dizzying dynamics of Max/MSP software, his sound dances in a double refraction of ideas and influence between US, Afro-Caribbean and UK dancefloors in various stages of integration and mutation; following a line along Black-rooted dance music and the sharpest edge of experimental electronics in a way that’s informed the best, open-minded UK music since the mid 20th century and is now inseparable from our shared culture in 2016. 
 
BIG tip!
