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"

Emancipation: High House, Incepto's Snowfall Sampler, and Grusha

New from Ultra Vague: Mamanet, Awesomatic, Sable Beats, and KØL¥∆

A Faith in Difference: Maylo, Jimmy Roqsta, Deepswell, and Following Light

A Sense of Place: Toxez, Grace in Space, Mr Morek, and Cucumbers

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?
Family Therapy: Coronabeats, Cao Sao Vang, Naive Diver, and LetsGetTune
Against the backdrop of a happy, productive hip-hop community in Latvia, some new publications by Russian artists take a dark view of group membership. Kindness and collaboration are both absent.
ITech Sound System: Sasha Kaktus, Anton Lanski, Timtril, and Spieltape
ITech Sound System is a St. Petersburg label, agency, and community. Despite the professional success of its members, ITech retains a meaningful connection to an underground ethos.
