SUMS is the collaborative project of French electronic producer Kangding Ray and Mogwai multi-instrumentalist Barry Burns.

Berlin Atonal Recordings conceived this project, giving the musicians carte blanche to develop a new group that would bring together different elements of both Kangding Ray and Barry Burns’ musical traditions. With the addition of drumming savant Merlin Ettore, Ray and Burns devised a musical world that blended post-rock soundscapes and structures, using the sound-language of contemporary techno and experimental electronic music.

After a debut performance in 2013, the group took the project into the studio. Working with a range of instruments over a two-year period, SUMS began to produce tracks that achieved an organic fusion of spatial electronics and rousing post-rock sounds, seamlessly blending the best of both Mogwai and Kangding Ray. SUMS – SUMS is the first release from this new phase of the project
