Ruins EP is E.N.Cowell's first attempt to splice together music with a modern computer and transition away from the pure chiptune electronic music of his past. C64 acid lines, analog synths, lofi samples, hacked video game devices, and aggressive rhythms drive this dystopian cyberpunk-inspired soundscape.
released September 18, 2014

This is definitely not your classic chiptune album! while it still has the bouncy energy of bit shifters other works, this album has a new take on the concept of bass in the gameboy. Tracks 4 and 8 are like nothing I've ever heard before, and tracks 5, 6 and 7 have the most amazing drums and leads, *-*
