Art Electronix: Partly Broken (Kryvyi Rih FFM6)
Art Electronix (Krivoi Rog, Ukraine): "In most cases, our compositions are made from collages of aging, defective sounds - together with old-school drum machine beats, all in the true Detroit spirit."
Spotovsky: Not as Close as I Want (Saint Petersburg FFM2)
