A Refusal to Choose: Cadeu, Sal Solaris, Alexey Volkov, and Apex Sphere
New techno from Belarusian and Russian towns describes itself in neo-Marxist terms, as a repetitive or quantitative choice leading to qualitative change
Abstractions versus Assiduousness: Nikita Zabelin, Koloah, and Doyeq
Minimal techno and bass publications from Moscow and Kiev bear an overarching theme this season: hard work. Their PR rhetoric, however, is not always enthusiastic.
Two Teachers, Shoulder to Shoulder: Anton Maskeliade and Valotihkuu
New publications from Anton Maskeliade and Valotihkuu have a pedagogical intent. The former artist is actually a teacher; the latter hopes to champion the importance of noiseless humility.
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.
Thresholds: Sal Solaris, Bisamratta/M. Sultan, Crane's Dreams, Borisov & Salnikov
The new LP from Sal Solaris is dedicated to transgression, both in sound and society. Other electronic releases from various Russian cities ponder similar themes.
Deconstruction: Harmash, Mujuice, 4 Positions of Bruno & Gultskra Artikler
Against the backdrop of East European political and economic challenges, four recordings ponder the appeal of deconstructive gestures––rather than stately pomp.
Lithuania's "Ritmo Kovos IV": Chaotic Sounds from a Hornets' Nest
A new and wide-ranging compilation of Lithuanian electronic producers has just appeared, entitled "Ritmo Kovos 4" (Beat Battle #1). It bears much social import.
The World Outside: Sunrises, Japanese Ash, Nearfield, and Atariame
From snowy Siberia to the medieval towns of Belarus, a range of new recordings are directly informed by their melancholy setting. A folk ensemble from Saint Petersburg pushes back––with a smile.
Hybrid Sound and Social Potentials: Happy New Year from Hyperboloid
Moscow's Hyperboloid label has a New Year's compilation to announce, including six tracks from Raumskaya, Cadeu, Koloah, Fisky, A.Fruit, and Baked Milk.
Major Projects in a Minor Setting: Bop, Nuage, Dissident/Kontext & KSKY
An interwoven network of musicians in Saint Petersburg unveils a series of publications––almost simultaneously. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they all share common ideas and convictions.
