Coming up in the music scene of Kansas City, Uun (Ryan Malony) crafted his love for the darker edges of sound as a guitarist in multiple Metal and Hardcore bands before turning his focus to techno. Both his early work as a band member 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.
After DJ’ing for 7 years, Ryan began working on a live PA in an effort to fully bring his vision of techno to fruition. These extended production sessions became the basis for his current live PA sets which are now his primary form of performance. These live sets take his previous skills as a DJ / multi-instrumentalist and blends them with his love of sound design and production all while maintaining an attention to the dance floor.
As a producer Ryan’s work with labels like Dynamic Reflection, Unknown Territory, and Amazone have garnered attention from the likes of Chris Liebing, Truncate, Octave, Tom Hades, Slam, and many more.
As part of the Kansas City Techno crew he has helped keep alive the Midwest underground by bringing in top regional talent from the techno scene.
In August of 2016 he will be launching his label Ego Death, which will be the home for many of the productions heard in his live pa sets as well as a corresponding series of official label nights.
