Jack Sparrow and Ruckspin team up

Bass collaboration Author are streaming a new mix previewing material from their debut album.

Leeds has a thriving electronic scene. David Kennedy (Ramadanman / Pearson Sound) studied in the city, while the area boasts clubs with a nationwide reputation. Now Author pits two of the city's foremost producers against one another.

Jack Sparrow and Ruckspin have teamed up to form the project, with their debut album set to drop on Tectonic. A Bristol label for a Leeds' sound, Author are set to drop the self-titled LP on November 14th.

Following a series of one off cuts, Author have already established a reputation for more spacious arrangements. The emphasis has been moved from the dancefloor to a more general exploration of sound, with the partnership using live musicians to push their output in different directions.

Taking their cue from Kruder & Dorfmeister’s ‘K&D Sessions’, the pair also cite prime era Mowax as a massive inspiration. A step beyond their usual frame of reference, Author sees Jack Sparrow and Ruckspin explore influences that maybe wouldn't fit in with their previous reputations.

Tectonic will release the duo's debut album on November 14th, with Author recently recording a special preview at Eiger Studios in Leeds. Caught performing live, you can stream the results in a new mix available below...
