rkss is an alias of Robin Buckley, a London-based sound artist. Their newest work DJ Tools, released on Lee Gamble‚Äôs UIQ, was based on their live performances where they recontextualise EDM sample packs into fragmented computer music. They accompanied this with the mixtape DJ Tools: Illegal Material, featuring edits of Underworld, Alice Deejay and Vengaboys, further investigating this blend of contemporary dance music. Their other releases on Alien Jams, Where To Now? and others have explored the materiality of film sound, YouTube and EDM sample packs through the lens of house, ambient and computer music.
