Interview with Gancher & Ruin

These twins double up the sickness!

Gancher & Ruin are Russian twin brothers who have been storming the scene with their Neurofunk. Their Eatbrain releases are by far some of the best we’ve heard to date. Every track of their is spot on!  The duo have released on Position Chrome, Mindocracy, Yellow Stripe, Future Sickness, and Enzyme. We’ve been listening to their tracks for some time and have loved the progression and transition into Neurofunk. After their latest release “The Chase” EP on Eatbrain, we decided we had to talk to them and find out whats next!

Artist Interview

First off, We are excited to talk to you and appreciate you taking the minute to talk to us about yourself and your latest EP “The Chase ” on Eatbrain’s imprint. We’ve seen some changes in your production overtime. Hows it been going the last few years? What have you done different in your production process that makes “The Chase” EP different from your previous releases?

Hey there!
Yeah, actually it’s been a big time for us. We have been working on a lot of different styles. Music won’t stop. It always vary and that’s what we like. More you listen to different genres – more you grow. Especially when you produce different music. It brings you new horizons (if you know what I mean). That’s great thing that brought us a new view on drum and bass.
If you like more neuro-style you do that – there is no borders. If you know you can do it – then do it. At least you try and move forward 🙂

As you know by our first question, we listen to your music. I worked with Cooh in the past so while our paths didn’t cross our musical influences surely have. I knew your music as that Crossbreed Drum & Bass that was very hardcore techno influenced music as well as your metal influences heavy amen music. While still hard bass, this latest EP is surely not that at all. What brought you to the Neurofunk side?

As an Artist and as a Person you have to get to the new level, I think. We choose Neurofunk as a new level. It has really nice techniques and vibe that we’ve been into for a long time.
We actually did a lot of Neurofunk back in the days but never released or showed anyone. It was more for getting skills on producing. And one day we thought: We can try do neurofunk and do it as we see it, but not as everybody does. I know it could sounds a bit … standard. We wanted to find a way to make a bridge between our old and new style and try to be not one of a many.

The engineering in “The Chase” has been great. You’ve set a new bar for yourselves and we are excited for whats to come. So we ask, whats next for you guys?

Thank you! The Chase was the first track Jade took for an EP. We just tried to follow the emotions you get when you chasing some one or getting chased. You can stumble, fall, loose the breath and get adrenalin of course. For us it doesn’t need some much sounds to show these emotions. The Chase is better than the catch. 😉

I hope soon you will hear some great stuff we’re working on these days!

At DNB Magazine, we love album artwork. Trinyo Art did this EP and its dope. Anime like and I like it. What do you guys think and who made the edit with your dog on the motorcycle? We love it.

Yeah, we felt in love with this artwork. It is amazing job! That’s the one we’ve been waiting for so long!
Firstly we’ve been talking about the artwork with brother and giving each other the ideas how it will be done, the idea of artwork, which theme will be chosen. We’ve checked all the Eatbrain Artworks trying to get how it will be done. But after we got the first version – I even could speak – It was so awesome!

About the edit with the dog. That was Alexey. He did small clip for instagram just for fun. Our dog has too much energy for her small size so she always running through the studio on the hyperspeed and sometimes you have to chase her to get her out form the studio. He just added dog’s head on the artwork and put it through a few filters in Prisma iOS app. So basically edited artwork gives you a representation of our chase for dog in the studio.

Any other words?

We never forget styles we’ve been into, so there are a lot of new tracks to come! For us it’s really boring working only in one style so get ready for new music!

We thank Gancher & Ruin for their time to talk to us and know they will surely be a force to recon with in the future! Connect with them by clicking on their logo below!
