RYD "beautifully nuanced, the blissful electronics set against that melancholic vocal to produce a wonderfully bittersweet effect." Clash Magazine
RYD is 22 year-old North London producer Ryan Downie.
With a plethora of “ethereal” artists out there, RYD stands alone, not only because the beats and production are so special, but because the emotional impact of the song doesn’t fade when it’s over. You’re left feeling a complex mixture of hope and pain.
Sonic influences might include Bon Iver, Bonobo, Four Tet and Flume, but really RYD is carving out his own path.
