Ryan McRyhew is a composer residing in Denver, CO, as well as creative lynchpin in the Denver DIY electronic music scene. McRyhew’s relocation to Chicago’s South side from (2011 – 2014) allowed him secluded time and space to create in-depth and unconditional music as Entrancer. He draws influence from pioneering electronic and experimental composers who placed an emphasis on extended development and technique, alongside early analog dance producers who went all-out and all-in with little more than a TR-808 in their arsenal. While Entrancer reframes elements of Chicago Juke and house in long-form design, the end result one in which a subtler horizon is discovered, trumping more palatable musical codes and dissuading us from treating electronic music, or any genre-stamped style matter, with rote attention.
