Coming up in the metal scene of Kansas City, Uun (a.k.a. Ryan Malony) crafted his love for the darker edges of music as a guitarist in metal bands before turning his focus to techno. Both his early work as an instrumentalist and his current work as a techno producer share a common exploration of darkness both in mood and in execution. As his discography has grown, so have his productions and mixes quickly evolved into their own unique sound.
Uun’s recent work with top labels and producers Reloading Records, Dystopian Rhythm, Teggno, Sutter Cane, Brian Burger, and Andrei Morant, has garnered attention from the likes of Chris Liebing, Joseph Capriatti, Octave, Tom Hades, Dubfire, and many more.
As a DJ, Uun has quickly made a name for himself around the Midwest. His deep, hard, and heady style relies both on smooth blends as well as complex layering, moving from the depths of dub and bass to the broken dystopian soundscapes linking his own music to the larger techno world. He has also put great importance on the DJ mix as a complete concept, releasing thoughtful sets for Project Techno, Reloading Records, Dystopian Rhythm, SUBterror Radio, and Monument among others.
In 2015 and beyond, Uun’s hardworking ethos will continue with multiple new releases and remixes in the works. Whether in the studio or on the decks, prepare for a descent into dub and darkness.
