Ruane Maurice Share Their "Nomenclature"

Ruane Maurice self-titled debut album

As Walter Sobchak would say, "Dude, Chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature." But I gotta tell ya, hip-hop trio Ruane Maurice, who are set to drop their self-titled debut album with Stars and Letters Records on September 9th, ARE the preferred nomenclature.

 Chinaman is NOT the preferred nomenclature

The aptly named “Nomenclature”, their first single, and “Farne” which just came out last week, are musically and stylistically robust with a strong focus on musique concrète and found sound — but the guys of Ruane Maurice aren’t afraid to throw in some fluid rap lyrics and seriously smooth slow jams too.

It's hard not to notice impeccable production and the presence of so many influential genres, but it comes down to what Matthew Forbes, Sam Lewis and Chris Caedus do with them that makes the tracks so innovative and worthwhile. The layering and composition, the smokiness, the way every sound molds to the next make these guys so fresh and exciting to hear.


Reading through the band’s vast musical history, you’d hardly believe they’re just three unassuming 21-year-old guys who grew up chasing the usual teenage exploits in post-industrial Birmingham, England. The difference is their love and experimentation in everything from pop and R&B to electronica and ambient dance. Forbes had been creating his own solo dance sounds before moving back to London just 2 years ago to join his two friends, and just like that a beautiful alliance was formed.

My personal favorite part of this trio: all 3 members write lyrics and produce together and yet if you listen, the lyrics don’t come out sounding disparate with parts coming from different places. It’s a true partnership, musicianship at its finest.

Ruane Maurice will have a BBC live-to-air coming out this month and they’ve already built quite a buzz in the UK, so don’t miss the opportunity to connect with them and hopefully see them stateside soon:
