The Runcible is the seventh release for the Toronto
based Dirty Inputs, and first for the paper+sound label.
The five tracks on the album flow together into one
continuous epic electronic soundscape. Complex layers
of sound reveal highly melodic riffs that interwind
with the occasional rhythm.

Dirty Inputs is Aaron Dawson, a musician and VJ based in Toronto, Canada. Dawson was part of the Toronto ambient drone collective Off The International Radar and has shared the stage with the likes of Holy Fuck, A Place To Bury Strangers, Junior Boys, Hauschka, Quintron and Nadja among many others. Having grown up in a small town in the Rocky Mountain foothills of western Canada, moving to the continent’s fourth largest metropolis has produced conflicting desires for nature and technology. Dirty Inputs’ euphoric synth-driven soundscapes search for the beach between these desires, between the beautiful and the terrifying. This focus has created a body of work that is often dark and brooding, and other times joyful and emotional. It is an attempt to strip away hype and rhetoric to reveal the humble existence of humankind staring into the void.
