Ruby My Dear: À Dada

So now that Igorrr has crossed over into the metal world, his past collaborator Ruby My Dear seems to be picking up the torch and making wacky, genre-obliterating breakcore. Except this album might even be more fun than anything Igorrr has ever done. Honestly, the most accurate made-up genre to file this under would have to be Itchy & Scratchy-core. It’s close to that level of sadistic glee. There’s atmospheric guitar melodies tucked away inside piledriving breakbeats, momentary bursts of death metal growling and hardwired guitars, glitchy polka horns, cartoonish vocals, and so much more. But as with everything this artist does, it is all deadly precise and extremely musical instead of just being a shitpost pileup of random samples. Even when he’s going for the funny bone or shocking you with pure nonsense, or even consciously writing lullaby-type melodies and spiking them with breakbeats, RMD’s music seems too elaborate and inspired to just write off as a novelty. I saw him at Bangface the first time I went a few years ago, but I barely remember his set. There’s no way I’m going to forget his set this year.
