Rhath is the name chosen by Ry Hamilton-Smith as an outlet for his electronic dark chill and horror hop. Ry started going under the name after he discovered Sun Araw (aka Cameron Stallones) through the video game Hotline Miami. Initially, Ry fit the songwriter-guitarist mould, before taking a few steps over to the electronic genre. Influenced by instrumental hip hop, Ry combined this with his video game influences, notably the soundtracks of titles such as Hotline Miami, Portal and the Fallout series. Performing solo with midi controllers and Ableton Live, Ry mixes in his pre-recorded material in the form of samples. At the end of last year he released This Alien Headdress is Not Helping Me Float. You can check it out through his Bandcamp. The Bridge, Castlemaine – June 19. He will be joined by The Astros.
