REVIEW : Incredibly hard hitting street-wise distorted cuts and minimal noises rattle the block, broken beats chasing the song as it marches with unwavering avarice. It's a gritty song that is sandwiched between layers of audio glitz and glamour that shows another side of the entire story as it unfolds before the listener. This is one of the work of this this multifaceted musician Kiev, Ukraine. He is young, but very experienced like the "veterans" in the music world, starting in his teens making electronic, techno and dance music and years later entered completly into the experimental, free improvisation and noise music. How you can imagine I choose one of his noisiest works as my favourite, but despite this fact we don´t deal aboute extreme noise but an ultra controllated noise, making just few little cuts, broken beats and distorted sounds. It remind me electronic projects like Autechre or Pan Sonic and noise musicians like KK Null at the same time. I read in a review he don´t use only electronic instruments but also rock and acoustic instruments to get small and original effects. At first listened of this album I realized I was in front of something serious, original, with quality and simply... good. I promise to get more music and info about this artist to add in this blog. Don´t miss. Amazing work friends.
