Planet Mu affiliate Rian Treanor explores the chaotic rave shapes of ATAXIA, his debut album.
On Top Flight, journalist Chal Ravens selects the best releases from the outer edges of the dancefloor and traces new innovations from the global bass underground. This week, Rotherham’s Rian Treanor joins Chal to explain the disruptive rave of his debut album, ATAXIA. Playing on the album’s title – defined as “the loss of control of bodily movements” – it’s a record of chaotic cut-ups and asymmetric rhythms that draws influence from his own father, Mark Fell (a legend of minimalist electronics). Treanor steadies our route through ATAXIA while Chal picks the best new tracks from across the bass spectrum, including Swing Ting’s Epic B, Western Lore’s Sonic, ragga business from Wrongtom and dembow from Mina.
