Tectonic release the self-titled album by Author, the brainchild of Leeds based dubstep producers Jack Sparrow and Ruckspin.
It maybe a new name on the scene, yet the producer duo that constitutes Author are certainly no newbies in their own right. Both Ruckspin and Jack Sparrow have established themselves as highly gifted and hardworking producers, dedicated to engineering optimum quality sounds.
Following their first collaboration, ‘Dread’, which was included on ‘Get Darker Presents This is Dubstep 2011’, they formed Author as a shared project. Removed from the pressure of the dancefloor, Author takes the baton from Kruder & Dorfmeister’s ‘K&D Sessions’, The Cinematic
Orchestra and timeless Mowax recordings in exploring more spacious arrangements and sounds. It represents the opportunity to experiment within the context of dubstep, collaborating with live musicians and celebrating a wide palate of musical influences.
Ryan Gath aka Jack Sparrow has had a slew of deep-dubstep dancefloor killers under his belt on Contagious, Earwax, Pushing Red Recordings and Cloqwerq, as well as jaw-dropping debut LP ‘Cicadian’ out on Tectonic last year. Alongside Sparrow, fellow Leeds based beat-sculptor, long standing friend and producer Dom Howard aka Rukspin is also a key member and producer for the live dubstep super-group Submotion Orchestra.
