Rian Treanor; Pattern DamageThe Death of Rave
RAVE 017 EP
Twelve Inch Single Record
Pattern Damage is the second flash of idiosyncratic footwork and garage hybrids from South Yorkshire's Rian Treanor.Pattern Damage finds Rian both opening out and refining his sound. The grimy noise torque 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 and "Damage B1" comes off like a giddier, footworking answer to "Hyph Mngo" and "Damage B2" unfolds a super cute and tricky sort of syncopated rhythm origami.
