High-Frequency Pressures: Cream Soda, Mamanet, Naadya, and Filatique
Using either canonical or peripheral dance-floor sounds, four publications from Russia and Ukraine consider the growing "pressure" of stately intent upon private whim.
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.
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?
From Yekaterinburg and Beyond: Sansara, RSAC, OQJAV, and AloeVera

Road Movies: VEiiLA, Romantiki, Vivienne Mort, and So Mnoyu Vot Chto

As various bands perform in distant places, travel the globe, or simply dream, a common desire emerges: the possibility of erasing geography altogether.
News from the Past: Tikriaeht, Sport & Music, NV, and Computer Graphics
Retrospection is a common theme in Russian and Ukrainian electronica. In some new recordings, it takes on a very different significance altogether.
