Raime

Raime the enigmatic London-based duo of Joe Andrews and Tom Halstead are seeking to re-establish electronic composition as a physical and emotionally inquisitive force. Having released two phenomenally well-received EPs on hip London label Blackest Ever Black, Raime have established their sound making vast waves of sound – both beautifully intricate and artfully industrial, all woven around gut-shaking rhythm cycles.

Raime draw explicit inspiration from the marginal mavericks of early European goth, minimal dance and synth wave – artists largely omitted from the current master narrative of post-punk history, who strove to make music at once cerebral and visceral, futuristic and atavistic. Tying this to sonics and textures worthy of future music field leaders Raime prove themselves well-versed in the language of club music, while rejecting its typically rigid sequencing and arrangements.
