Four Labors of Love: Komba Bakkh, Napo, La Vtornik, and Uplotnenie
For all these artists from Russia and Lithuania, new publications are possible only after much effort. The daily grind and social indifference do their best to make creative work maximally difficult.
Starting Again: Viljandi Guitar Trio, Alpha-Beta, Wols, and Nikita Bondarev
Four publications this month are dedicated to themes of transformation and metamorphosis. Despite their differing styles, they find common ground in a celebration of good-natured change.
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.
Quality, Not Quantity: iTech Sound System and the Heisenberg Club
St. Petersburg has a new club - Heisenberg - which has grown from the local Squat Academy and iTech Sound System. Running the show are Sasha Kaktus, DJ Pitters, and their colleague Yuri Skiff.
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.
New from Ultra Vague: Mamanet, Awesomatic, Sable Beats, and KØL¥∆
Ultra Vague is a Ukrainian netlabel that recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. Not surprisingly, overlapping themes of hard work and fidelity run through a number of releases.
A Faith in Difference: Maylo, Jimmy Roqsta, Deepswell, and Following Light
Recent house recordings from four Russian-speaking DJs are dedicated to the value of change. Somewhere in their fidelity to a given style lies a celebration of difference. (Picture: Maylo's hometown of Berdsk)
A Sense of Place: Toxez, Grace in Space, Mr Morek, and Cucumbers
Two of these dancefloor projects are from the Russian capital; the others come from Vladivostok and Volgograd. Those more distant locations bring with them a specifically Slavic cultural baggage.
Ephemerality: Anton Maskeliade, Deepeople, Rikk Fury, and Elphy Ant
Three solo projects from Russia and Ukraine touch upon a common issue. What is the relationship of hard work to creative success, if artistic "verity" is viewed in terms of something ineffable or fleeting?
