Abstractions versus Assiduousness: Nikita Zabelin, Koloah, and Doyeq
Minimal techno and bass publications from Moscow and Kiev bear an overarching theme this season: hard work. Their PR rhetoric, however, is not always enthusiastic.
Solo: Arizona Dream, A. Zaitsev, Sweet Mountains, Vejopatis & Giriu Dvasios
A range of new electronic recordings from Russia and Lithuania find increasing appeal in solitude. Belief and ideals both need seclusion.
Two Kinds of Anonymity: Paul Menska, x.y.r., IC3PEAK, and Milky Toad
Russian social networks are home both to shyness and subversion. Some artists seek nameless refuge, while others plan loud protest––from nowhere.
Discreet Stanzas: Anton Malinen, Grebenshchik, Gaya Marina & "Bo i Bro"
Four new acoustic releases have roots in very diverse towns, all the way from Magadan to Kharkiv. What they share is a desire to hide from crude actuality.
CXEMA's Schemes: John Object, Potreba, PRCDRL & Molodoy Chelovek
CXEMA (The Scheme) is an underground techno community in Kiev. Four new podcasts, each showcasing an electronic artist, are unavoidably framed by recent events.
Virtuality at RTS: Tema Rodin, Sasha Khizhnyakov, Artem Kleinst & Belogurov
Late last year, the online dance and electronica station RTS.FM celebrated its tenth anniversary. A new collection of sets and podcasts continues to shape a musical virtuality.
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.
Pine Therapy: Endless Melancholy, Pavel Chigarskikh, SiJ, and Furthers
A collection of ambient and drone recordings from Yekaterinburg, Sevastopol, and Kiev share a common desire. They all express a sage preference for solitude over city life. Silence often heals.
Road Movies: VEiiLA, Romantiki, Vivienne Mort, and So Mnoyu Vot Chto
The future can be unpredictable in Eastern Europe. Four new recordings visualize tomorrow as a road movie, a winding or rocky passage, and a dead end. Hope is needed.
A Sweet, Familiar Melancholy: The Cancel, BMB, Tantsui, and Oligarkh
Objects of desire move further from home in some new house, hip-hop, and bass releases. As fantasy becomes a behavioral norm, some artists discern a historical pattern.
