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.
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.
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.
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.
Remixing as Transposition: Omauha, Dos Buratinos, A&1, and Evave
The Perm ensemble Dos Burtatinos has announced a retrospective collection of remixes. That reconstitution of eight years' work is likened to the sensation of being somewhere else entirely.
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.
