His previous long player, Lustmore was partially inspired by the concept of hypnagogia, a suspension of consciousness occurring between awake and sleep states. Throughout Ruinism, the British producer takes this exploration further, journeying into the more ominous limbo between life and death.
""Ruinism" is a made-up term I use to describe the way in which blended sound palettes and inspirations interact with one another to form this album,” he explains. Using 100% hardware and real instruments for the first time in his career, he recorded synths and drum hits and re-sampled, re-pitched, twisted and blended the sound “until it was ‘ruined’” and then salvaged it again in an attempt to make something coherent.
