A 2 track electronic single (11m 56s) — released April 19th 2019 on Meine Nacht

Daniel Ruane and Breakwave both share a passion – to do something outside-the-box within contemporary dance music. Meine Nacht has been referred to as a peer-to-peer network, the aesthetic of the parties fit in with this notion. A concept based on the idea of providing a network, the small network of people act as a server to others by word of mouth which allows for shared access to the parties. There's a close-knit community of people that return to the events and it's these people that preserve the relaxed atmosphere of the secret parties.

Daniel's previous releases have been recognised for their mind bending, intellectual approach to 3D sound design and glitchy stop start methods. Tengu is Meine Nacht's first venture into label territory, and symbolises the alternative ethos that has been a staple in the concept since day one.

The title track could be regarded as the frantic soundtrack belonging to an anxious generation. There's defiance within its warped and frightened structure; a passion for tearing down walls and de-constructing boundaries, and glitching madness that floats on the periphery of insanity.

It opens, full of optimism, with visions of an otherworldly utopia, before transcending into a manipulated fucked-step. Twisted rhythms, organic/robotic hybrids and mutant grooves, delivered with extraordinary accuracy, birth a form of experimentalism that is at home on the dance floor.

IV (CF_BD) shines a searchlight on a computerised battle. These are Ruane's biological impulses in mechanised form. A dextrous, rhythm provides a loose template for controlled chaos as lairy bass pressure, overdriven kicks and difficult rhythms treat the track like a statue of Perseus being carved out of stone.
