Jack Sparrow and Ruckspin ready Author for Tectonic
Purveyors of a dark, malevolent brand of dubstep, the Leeds based pair have built solid reputations as solo artists, with Sparrow (real name Ryan Gath) releasing his debut album, Circadian, last year, while Ruckspin aka Dom Howard’s early 12″s found a snug home on Toby Davies and Harry Devenish’s Ranking Records – he’s also part of the live dubstep ensemble Submotion Orchestra.
The pair had already collaborated on one track – “Dread” – before the album project commenced. According to a press release, Author will see a retreat from club-focused sounds into “more spacious arrangements” and will include collaborations with live musicians.
Author will be released via Tectonic on November 14 on CD and digital formats. For a taste of what to expect, check out the below mix of old and new material recorded live from Eiger Studios in Leeds.
