An Almost Hallucinogenic Anxiety: Dza, IJO, 300 Degrees, and Escenda
Four dancefloor recordings, from very different locations in Russia and Lithuania, are linked by a sense of troubling, yet productive worry.
Chillout: New Recordings from Microcosmos and Alexander Saykov
The St. Petersburg label Microcosmos has published three chillout recordings, examining alternative views of actuality. Alexander Saykov extends them––to Moscow.
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.
Quiet Exits: Paul Formatick, Alexander Zhakulin, L.O.S., and Vejopatis
A number of tech-house and dub techno releases this week speak fondly of solitude. Both isolation and introspection have a unique significance for those who work online.
Reality Remixed: Low Orbit Satellite, Valer Den Bit, Shuma, and Max Vertigo
A Belarusian "ethno-jazz" ensemble announces some remixed, yet traditional compositions. That same desire to stay relevant through reinvention informs a number of other dance releases.
Global Options, Local Realities: Rață, Up & Pg, Broxy, and Snap Kit
Tetriz Records and Get High Music are Ukrainian tech- and progressive house labels. The role of collaboration is important for both projects, but what role does a label play in the face of piracy?
Tradition: Volta Cab, Gregory Esayan, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Dallonte
Four house releases from Russia, Ukraine, and Moldova combine the traditions of Chicago and Detroit with Soviet history - in order to fashion an alternative to local, industrial reality.
Astronaut Ape, Cosmic Replicant, Slow Reflections, and Synthetic Sunrise
St. Petersburg's Microcosmos Records has published a chillout compilation that serves to illustrate the meaning of downtempo modes in Northern Russia. Reverie travels very far from home indeed.
Aspiration: Evgeny Bardyuzha, Bring Bliss, and Four KOS.MOS Artists
In the face of geographic, commercial, and industrial challenges, these Russian and Ukrainian artists manage to stay optimistic. They take faith from history, Soviet rockets, distant stars, and poetry.
Promoting Diligence: 7Oceans, Anturage, Anivia, and Cream Soda
As new dancefloor publications find themselves obliged to create promotional material, doubts emerge regarding its efficacy. Gradually hard work is validated over and above any hard sell.
