After much preparation and an almost year-long hiatus, we’re very excited to announce new Proximal Records music!
First up we have the “Lakes” Ep, by Manchester based Proximal new-comer Daniel Ruane. This bass-ladened collection of tightly executed dance tracks artfully stitches together field recordings gathered during a trip to England’s Lake District National Park into a compelling collection of sci-fi influenced soundscapes and dark club bangers.
The LAKES EP, by Manchester, UK based Proximal new-comer Daniel Ruane, came to us from across the pond. This bass-ladened collection of tightly executed dance tracks artfully stitches together field recordings gathered during a trip to England’s Lake District National Park into a compelling collection of sci-fi influenced soundscapes and club bangers.
On LAKES, Ruane creates a lush sonic environment that keeps listeners suspended, unable to fully quantify the medley of textures that form his compositions. Though free from the gridlock of modern electronic music, Ruane anchors his tunes in decidedly electronic structures, sounds, and ideas. The EP is rounded off by a club focused remix by Proximal veteran, Wake.

Tolerance Training: Part Two
The first track to be shared off of Courtship Dances was “Tolerance Training: Part Two” which debuted on XLR8R with these words from Glenn Jackson,
["Tolerance Training: Part Two"] spends much of its five-minute run coyly shifting shapes from a cavernous dance track, to a more energetic house affair led by active (and even a touch funky) synth sequences and lined with an array of minute rhythmic details. An impressive feat of dancefloor evolution…Read the full review
J’ed(ed) / Chyme
The second track to be released from Courtship Dances was “J’ed(ed) / Chyme” which debuted on THUMP from managing editor Jemayel Khawaja who had this to say,
This tune comes out the gate as a raunchy, fidgetty heater and switches up into dystopian ghetto-tech beat now and again – but somewhere around the three minute mark, it devolves into a voided soundscape from which it never returns. The whole thing is an engrossing endeavor…Read the full review
