Back in 2021, London-based producer Ryan Lee West aka Rival Consoles has released a new album called Overflow. According to the press release, it is a resonant and explorative soundscape of original music, composed for renowned choreographer Alexander Whitley’s contemporary dance production Overflow.

Now he’s announced the release of a new album called Now Is which is out on October 14th via Erased Tapes. It marks a new chapter in an ongoing quest for refinement and evolution. More playful and melodic, the album draws from much experimentation in minimalist songwriting and seamlessly blends synthesisers and acoustic instruments. “There are some pieces that are influenced quite strongly by the isolation and anxiety of these times. There are also pieces which are more optimistic and vibrant, which I think is a consistent attitude of my records, as I want art to express many aspects of life.”
