Rian Treanor - Ataxia [Planet Mu 405 Promo]

Scheduled for release on March 15th, 2k19 via the renowned and critically acclaimed Planet Mu-imprint is "Ataxia", the full length nine track debut album created by Rian Treanor who has released acclaimed singles on labels like The Death Of Rave and Arcola previously. Whilst the album title refers to 'the loss of full control of bodily movements' we defo see the musical outings on this longplayer, cheekily all named "Ataxia" and defined by their placement within the vinyl album version with Treanor's intention being '...to make people's bodies move in unpredictable ways', move bodies, opening with highly hypnotic and abstract polyrhythms paired with intense Spoken Word repetitions presented in "Ataxia_A1" whereas the follow up "Ataxia_A2" strips things down, bordering Phonk, Glitch, IDM and echoes of Breakcore before "Ataxia_B1" indulges in a cold, yet atmospheric scifi future with its deep melodic intro elements and expertly sculpted beats. With "Ataxia_B2" we see Rian Treanor exploring highly cut-up realms of FuturePop and experimental PostGarage for buzzing dancefloors, "Ataxia_C1" can be filed under the flag of thrilling FutureGrime abstractions and "Ataxia_C2" brings forth a sweet, seductive take on ElectroPhonk for advanced late night sets. Furthermore "Ataxia_D1" caters to the needs of all Breakbeat ravers with killer bleep melodies, advanced rhythms and distinct, highly ecstatic stab sequences, "Ataxia_D2" gets down in a bouncy, positive and slightly tribalistic fashion, once again delivering a massive dancefloor impact before the final cut "Ataxia_D3" provides a fascinating amalgamation of early 90s IDM Rave in a B12-reminiscent way and cut up, multilayered Future Soul-vocals for a massive closing. Highly recommended.
