RIVAL CONSOLES – KID VELO
The New Album. Released Track by Track, Week after Week.
ABOUT THIS ALBUM VIRAL CAMPAIGN:
London-based purveyor of intelligent dance music Ryan L. West aka RIVAL CONSOLES returns with his sophomore album KID VELO, released track by track over the course of 11 weeks. Every Monday will see a new album track being streamed exclusively from just one online portal connected to one exclusive online store, before going global on Fridays.
‘With brains supposedly adapting to online networks and attention spans reduced to 140 characters at a time, this is bite-sized music for a bite-sized world.’
– Robert Raths, founder of Erased Tapes Records
The campaign kicked off on April 11 and will cumulate in the official album release on June 27, 2011.
The album launch will be celebrated with a London show on June 23 at The Nest in Dalston w/Frog Pocket + Deadfader

TRACK 1: KID VELO – EXCLUSIVE STREAM via Drowned In Sound on April 11:
First on: album opener and title track KID VELO, carrying a name that could be straight out of a super hero comic strip.
According to West ‘this track wasn’t about an emotion. It was more about creating a huge sound; a heavy beast that has a lot of pop running through its veins’.

'There are a few labels which you can just trust. Erased Tapes is possibly one of them. One of their lot in Rival Consoles is doing something relatively novel and streaming a new track from his forthcoming record Kid Velo in various places across the internet over the next 11 weeks. We've got the VERY FIRST track and it's actually really, really good' – Drowned In Sound
