A Very Fluid Movement: Gultskra Artikler, Mårble, Ajokki, and Wet Straw
Toying with the basic structures of techno or glo-fi, four new recordings from Siberian artists consider a different kind of escapism. Psychology slowly takes the place of dance-floor frippery.
Getting There: Lena Kudrina, Kawri's Whisper, Endless Melancholy & Isea N
The theme of time is foregrounded by several new publications, but their authors remain unsure of an ideal outlook: forwards to the future––or back to a superior past?
Time to Listen: Information Ghetto, Lay-Far, Low Orbit Satellite & Tikriaeht
Four dance floor publications from Moscow, Krasnodar, Tula and––eventually––Syktyvkar are dedicated to difference. They consider the risks inherent in novelty.
Just One Letter: Kobra, Awlnight, Sasha Vinogradova, Mariqa & Armanjazz
A series of new publications from St. Petersburg, Moscow, and provincial Belarus all give thought to the slimmest of differences between matters "cosmic and comic."
Improvisation: Artemiev, A. Toymintseva, M. Kutskova, and A. Rostotskaya
Four recent publications from solo artists in both Russian jazz and pop music are dedicated to themes of individual effort––and the related risks thereof.
Rhythmic Designs: Rave Smith, Roma Khleb (RJB), Tony Soprano & Mårble
Although none of these recordings are dance music in the strictest, most canonical sense, their dalliance with rhythmic escapism and abandon is crucial.
Pine Therapy: Endless Melancholy, Pavel Chigarskikh, SiJ, and Furthers
A collection of ambient and drone recordings from Yekaterinburg, Sevastopol, and Kiev share a common desire. They all express a sage preference for solitude over city life. Silence often heals.
Unvoiced Dreams: Sirotkin, Artek Elektronika, The Tairyfale, Kim & Buran
As a series of new recordings take inspiration from the melancholy romance of Soviet pop music, the question arises: what about tomorrow?
An Almost Hallucinogenic Anxiety: Dza, IJO, 300 Degrees, and Escenda
Four dancefloor recordings, from very different locations in Russia and Lithuania, are linked by a sense of troubling, yet productive worry.
Chillout: New Recordings from Microcosmos and Alexander Saykov
The St. Petersburg label Microcosmos has published three chillout recordings, examining alternative views of actuality. Alexander Saykov extends them––to Moscow.
