A Retrospective Gaze: Dza, Mujuice, ZOLOTO, and Race to Space
Four new dance releases from around the Russian capital seek an escape from the daily grind. Increasingly, however, a pessimistic view of the future makes prior decades an attractive reference point.
Hardships and Hope: Vtgnike, Nuage, Ksky, Cream Soda, and Pixelord
The extremely gifted producer known as Vtgnike has been arrested and imprisoned in Vladimir. We consider the situation, describe his current scene, and offer some ways in which people can help.
ABC Galaxy: Captain Eureka (FFM11)
ABC Galaxy (Roman Skarednov, Izhevsk): "The 'Captain Eureka' album is an attempt to combine motifs of euphoria, pleasure, panic, and horror. There are parallels with the current economic state in Russia"
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.
