Rival Consoles

London-based producer Ryan Lee West, better known under the name Rival Consoles, is notable for making synthesisers sound human and atmospheric. With the release of his 'Odyssey' and 'Sonne' EPs,West has gained a reputation for making thoughtful electronica that spans a wide spectrum of musical ideas.

Foremost a guitarist, growing up listening to rock rather than club music, his new studio album ‘Howl’ sees West strive towards finding a more personal balance between music for home listening and larger spaces. Fascinated by sound from an early age, Ryan chose to dedicate his time to studying, experimenting with and producing sound, graduating from De Montfort University in his hometown Leicester.

Having repeatedly performed at such prestigious venues as the Tate, and having created a bespoke audio-visual performance for Boiler Room at the V&A Museum, the blueprint for West’s current live A/V show was formed

● 'Exceptionally brilliant' – Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music

Quit Safari

Quit Safari is a record label run by the musicians it releases. What began as a podcast quickly shifted into a portal for them to release music under. The label is driven by a DIY attitude. The artists mix and master their own music, shoot their own music videos and design their own artwork - 100% self reliant. Quit Safari have created a home to grow as artists and push to create music that is distinctly their own.

They represent the new wave of experimental live producers coming out of Cape Town.
