Rival Consoles is known for making synthesisers sound human and atmospheric led by mastermind Ryan Lee West. He recently released a 34-minute, 6-track mini album Night Melody which was born out of and shaped by long hours working into the night. Ryan reflected on the creative process sharing “I found myself, in a silent home, with the days getting dark very early. I’ve never before in my life been affected by the lack of light so much. I just remember it always being night time. I would either make music into the night, go out drinking with friends, or go to parties and dance into the early hours, every day, week after week, month after month, until eventually the days became brighter again.”

We would like to thank Erased Tapes, Native Instruments, and Spitfire Audio for being involved with Rival Conscole's "Slow Song" remix contest. Rival Conscoles streamed all of the submissions and picked Super G as the Grand Prize Winner and Julius Fabes as the runner up. Rival Consoles shared "I really like Super G's remix a lot, it is filled with rough textures and snappy rhythms that contrast the original soft and atmospheric sounds... the structure is also very unpredictable yet flows. very good indeed!". Rival Consoles also wanted to share his thoughts on Julius Fabes remix saying "This remix alters the rhythm of the piece and explores the soft nature of the original, finding some nice moments in a minimal arrangement".
