One of the most discerning and understated labels on the Moscow dance scene is Udacha. Its musicians do all they can to stay anonymous, and the resulting music stays far from primetime maximalism.
From Moscow, Novosibirsk, and maybe even further come various new instrumentals dedicated to some absent object of desire. People and locations are considered in terms of distant possibilities - and a present sense of lack.
New tech-house recordings from Zaporozhye and Krasnodar lead to some questions regarding "provincial" dance music. Offering one of the most pleasant and optimistic outlooks is Mike Spirit, owner of Moscow's Highway Records.
Fullpanda is a label operating between Paris, Berlin, and Moscow. Although its founder is a long-time resident of the West, the techno sound of Fullpanda still owes much to the Russian context.

Time to announce the publication of another fine work from Modul, the minimal techno stars from Krasnodar.  It comes to us as a 55-minute podcast via the Highsessions netlabel that's operated from the same city by Sergei Zarin (below).  Typically these podcasts are given over to work by Zarin...
In this third and final report on Moscow's MIGZ festival of Modern Music and Media Arts, we'll say a few words about Pro-Tez, who will be presenting a showcase of their artists.  More precisely, this will consist of Mujuice, B-Voice & KHz, and DJ Korablove, among others. Pro-Tez is...
