Minneapolis’ Elite Gymnastics just dropped two EPs, Ruin 1 and Ruin 2. Airy ambient textures share space with clubby beats, with 80s vox-style cameos. The rub here is mood, and Elite Gymnastics sets a stone-cold mood that will drop you 5 feet into a valium-flavored k-hole. Yum.
I’ll never forget these guys at the Halloween show QRO and Cream Team put on in Chicago. The first Gymnast hunched over a soundboard while the second Gymnast brandished a tumbler of bourbon and croon-waved into the microphone over an endless tide of beats and synth. Pretty fucking Elite.
Their Twitter account, on the other hand, is no longer elite (having been unlocked from a private account), so go stalk ’em there. Visit their Tumblr to download both EPs, and stream a couple tracks below. Cheers!
