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.
From Abstract to Anarchist: Ninja Glam and Clonki (FFM52 and 53)
The two newest FFM releases have direct connections to the Russian capital. One has slowly moved towards Moscow; the other hopes somehow to escape.
Three Moscow Networks: NII, GOST Zvuk, and the John's Kingdom Label
A modest experiment on Moscow's music scene has spawned a great deal of attention. "Science and Art" (NII) has also fueled a couple of vital labels.
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.
Virtual Trajectories: Oxxxymiron, The Erised, ABC Galaxy, and Vakula
Criticism of professional options in Russia and Ukraine is countered with a series of alternatives: psychedelia, fantasy, emigration––and virtual reality.
Sonic Protest: Pripoy, Ninja Glam, and Siberia's "Vovne" Community
Two noise projects in Moscow see a connection between their recordings and the nation's social fabric. Similar ideas transpire far away––in Siberia's "Vovne" group.
Convergence: Two New Compilation LPs from Electronica & Full of Nothing
Two of Russia's most significant independent labels––Electronica and Full of Nothing––have begun the New Year with simultaneous compilation albums.
Twenty-One Outsiders: The "Cyberghetto" Compilation from Hyperboloid
Moscow's Hyperboloid label releases a new compilation, dedicated to the noisy residents of Russia's "cyberghetto." That neologism has several meanings, both local and international.
Wind, Sand, and Stars: Yuka, Foresteppe, x.y.r., and Race to Space
One of the most enduring motifs of Soviet culture within Russian popular music has been the so-called "Space Race"––the competition between Moscow and Washington to explore the cosmos.
