Gaining visibility, without losing an inch of the mystery which surrounds him. This seems to be the slogan of the elusive Becoming Real (Toby Ridler), a young bedroom producer living in London, devoted to plastic arts and wide-ranging electronic music. His broken, yearning music and geometric approach to abstract beats, grimey dubstep and funky house invite you both to float at home, and to shake your shoulders on the dance floor. After the good reviews garnered for his recent work for Ramp and Lo Fi Funk, Ridler has a new reference, an EP called “Spectre” which will inaugurate the catalogue of Not Even, a new label associated with Moshi Moshi. It includes four cuts featuring the collaboration of grimer Trim (on vocals for the astral, bewitching “ Like Me” and “Showdown In Chinatown”) and DJ Rashad (his is the remix of “Like Me”), a pioneer of the Chicago’s Juke scene that’s being talked about so much of late. The album will hit the stores on 15th November.
