Spotovsky: Not as Close as I Want (Saint Petersburg FFM2)
Spotovsky (Saint Petersburg): "Everything's designed for psychedelic dancing... by people who are sitting down. This is the soundtrack to a game of hide and seek - with your own echo"
A Series of Minor Miracles: Stoned Boys, Cola Koala, L.O.S., and Ext
New dancefloor publications from Russia and Ukraine this week touch upon the theme of hard work. It seems that elbow grease guarantees little; even the most diligent souls need an occasional miracle.
Archival Tapes: Ambidextrous, KLIM Beats, Elphy Ant, and Jwush
A number of new recordings concern themselves with the passage of time. That central theme leads to a growing nostalgia, motifs taken from childhood, and various audible aspects of cassette culture.
Faith and the Long Haul: Timonin, Ivan Latyshev, Nemphirex, and Alimov
The career of Andrey Timonin moves from a southern industrial port to Moscow, London, and then beyond. His resulting trust in hard work is tempered elsewhere - both by doubt and a faltering faith.
Sochi's SWMC versus the Winter Olympic Games: "High Tide Vol. Three"
When the Sochi Winter Music Conference clashed with the Winter Olympics, scheduling problems arose. The worldview of a house label associated with the SWMC is proposing a solution.
Intimate Spaces: Ishome, Cream Soda, NiklāvZ, and Simak Delitvin
Mira Iskhome in Krasnodar releases some new recordings that are tied to Russia's southern electronic scene. For three other dancefloor publications this week, location is equally important.
Emancipation: High House, Incepto's Snowfall Sampler, and Grusha
Fresh house compositions from Russia and Lithuania show some fundamental, even universal elements of a house tradition. They celebrate the longstanding inclusiveness of classic disco in difficult times.
Quiet Exits: Paul Formatick, Alexander Zhakulin, L.O.S., and Vejopatis
A number of tech-house and dub techno releases this week speak fondly of solitude. Both isolation and introspection have a unique significance for those who work online.
An Outsider Soundtrack: The Beryoza "Old New Year Compilation"
Moscow's Beryoza project releases another fine example of Slavic "ghetto" tracks, playing upon the meaning of provinciality in Russia and Ukraine. Humor and anxiety often coincide.
Reality Remixed: Low Orbit Satellite, Valer Den Bit, Shuma, and Max Vertigo
A Belarusian "ethno-jazz" ensemble announces some remixed, yet traditional compositions. That same desire to stay relevant through reinvention informs a number of other dance releases.
