Listen to the eerie ‘In Media Res’ now.

UK production duo Raime – who have released projects with Blackest Ever Black and Diagonal –  have today (October 18) announced the launch of their own label, RR.

The imprint’s debut release is We Can’t Be That Far From The Beginning, a new three-track EP from the duo that builds upon the mutant grime and zombie dancehall of Am I Using Content Or Is Content Using Me?, their outstanding debut release for Mumdance & Logos’ Different Circles.

‘In Media Res’ weaves together sparse, choppy beats with disfigured Anime samples and murky bass to truly unsettling effect, evoking a sound that is a mixture between the skeletal avant-grime of early Rabit and the brutal sound design of Lotic.

We Can’t Be That Far From The Beginning is available digitally and on 12″ vinyl, including a special edition clear vinyl pressing limited to 300 copies, via Boomkat. Check out the cover art and tracklist below.
