Just the nuts and bolts, kids: Berlin-based Chinese producer Rui Ho will be releasing their second EP, Becoming Is An Eventful Situation, via Objects Limited on March 23.

And you know? I Couldn’t agree more with the title — becoming IS an eventful situation! To paraphrase (and update) Bob Dylan: They not busy being born is busy dying. True to its name, the sound of Becoming Is An Eventful Situation highlights the ongoing process of Rui Ho’s becoming, sporting some marked differences in approach from their debut EP, last year’s Tales 戰記. Becoming… continues Rui Ho’s merger of modern club sounds with traditional Chinese elements, but this time emphasis on beats in diminished in favor of texture, with stretches of the EP floating along in ambiance.

The EP’s tracklist sees Rui Ho’s four new tracks paired with a small clutch of sliced and diced versions of the same. Rui Ho adds drums for an alternate take on the EP’s second track, “Theia Impact,” while producers Dis Fig and x/o provide versions of “Albafica” and “Supernova.” Check out the un-altered “Theia Impact” down below, and pre-order the whole thing right here. March 23 is sooner than you think, and you wouldn’t want to miss this eventful situation. Would you?
