Berlin-based Chinese producer RUI HO makes electronic music that bridges modern club influences with traditional Chinese sounds. After releasing their well-received debut EP ‘Tales 戰記’ in May 2017 on Shanghai-based ‘Genome 6.66 Mbp’, They have prepared a whole new set of tracks for Lara Rix-Martin’s Objects Limited label. ‘Becoming Is An Eventful Situation’ moves on from the heavy club influence of their first EP, bringing out more melodic and ambient vibes, with percussive elements fulfilling a more supporting role.
The title track’s expansive, cosmic soundscape opens the EP leading well into ‘Theia Impact’ whose name is taken from the moon formation hypothesis and the Titaness of Greek mythology. ‘Albafica’ gets its title from the Japanese fantasy manga Saint Seiya and is formed with a more aggressive and distorted approach to rhythm and sound. ‘Supernova’ is inspired by classic, epic trance tracks pushing the emotion and euphoria to the maximum. The final three tracks are all reworks. RUI HO adds grimy drum sounds to Theia Impact while Berlin-based US producer Dis Fig adds her own vocals to a stunning remix of Albafica, ending with Canadian producer and sound artist x/o’s distorted techno take on ‘Supernova’.
