Sacred Ground 2018
“RY X was a seed that was planted, gently watered and nurtured. And it has grown, and blossomed. It has already grown beyond what I initially imagined.” Elaborates RY X of his rise to notoriety following his standout debut EP, Berlin released late 2014.
Originating from Australia and now based in LA, enigmatic artist and producer RY X has been making waves since his debut EP Berlin entered the public consciousness upon it’s release in late 2014 powered by the sleeper success of the set’s title track. RY X’s momentum has continued alongside the release of highly acclaimed albums and touring by his projects The Acid and Howling.
His eagerly anticipated debut album, Dawn released May 2016 via esteemed UK label, Infectious Music. A conscientious and unfeigned debut, RY discloses how the 12-track LP came to fruition via a candid process of self-discovery and trust – “I have followed my heart and it has been a beautiful process of building trust with myself, as an artist, and person.”
‘Dawn’ has a threadbare power – the arrangements stripped back so there is nothing to separate the listener from the song. The album represents the beginning of a beautiful unfurling, where we get to become witness to the intimate relationship between RY X, his art, and the world around him.
