Bolt Ruin


Released in

BOLT RUIN shredded his entire self-titled debut to pieces and constructed a new composition out of the debris. This resulted in title-track Obriultn, containing only sampled elements from all six tracks of fore mentioned album.“I like to set limitations inside my production process to challenge myself. Can I create something that feels new to me by only allowing the reconstruction of my old ideas?” he explains. In the same manner, he invited five artists to let their inspiring approach to destructive sound-design crash with his source material. These processes went much further then classic remixes and resulted in six completely new productions.

Obriultn was originally set to be released on April 18 as a Record Store Day special for Consouling Sounds.Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic RSD2020 was postponed indefinitely. Together we chose to re-orientate the album and release it on May 29 instead.

The global crisis has a profound impact on independent artists. Therefore we find it important to stimulate the contributing artists' exposure and momentum during these uncertain times and not wait for a possible new date for RSD2020.
