Speaking about the tour in a press release, UNKLE’s James Lavelle said: “With the Rōnin Tour, the UNKLE live experience is reimagined within the context of a club environment rather than a traditional live show. This allows us to be creative and experimental in many different ways.

“The Rōnin shows are layered, collaged and sampled to create a seamless UNKLE soundtrack experience, drawing influences from the past, present and future of UNKLE. The project started as a DJ-based performance and we aimed to push the limits of what we thought DJing was at the time, incorporating visual elements along with the music. We want people to dance, celebrate and have a great time.”

Previously speaking to NME back in 2021 about ‘Rōnin I’, Lavelle said: “You get this light out of the darkness in club music. It was important, looking at the songs, that some of the lyrics and what they meant could be put into a different context. I like the idea that, as a journey, the records are still lyrically trying to communicate things that I feel are quite appropriate right now, even though a lot of songs were recorded before COVID.”

He continued: “Before COVID there was still this sense of a lot of uncertainty and unrest and political extremes. You do feel like there’s BC and AC, Before COVID and After COVID. Before COVID felt so narcissistically over the top and a very greedy period of time, so a lot of the songs had connection with those feelings. Yet when you put them into a different context with COVID, there was still this feeling of that sort of sentiment being important now.”
