WL//WH is pleased to premiere “Cristal”, taken from the forthcoming V/A “Spazio Invasore Vol. 1″ compilation” via Moscow‘s new label Spazio, from Kikok, the electronic music project of Pavel Fedoseev, ex-drummer of the ‘stargaze’ band Gnoomes, with already three full-length LPs under his belt and an incoming new colorful EP, whose surreal synth-laden sound is a trippy, and wonky concoction of woozy Ambient, leftfield House, and proto-Techno.
Led by ceaselessly lashing beats, “Cristal” bounces its way through a retro squelchy and bubbling acid-flecked TB303 bassline, wrapped by a heady phantasmagoria of swirling and flashing moody synths and twinkling stabs, to evoke a groovy and sulky twilight dancing nostalgia.
A series of cassette variations in the turmoil of the days is opened by a collective improvement of high-class Russian craftsmen — VA “Spazio Invasore Vol. 1.”
The tape custom is fully equipped with collective images in the spirit of its time. Two sides come together: day and night, light and twilight. The rhythmic in-depth intro sets the pace with a touch of space disco, which is periodically warmed up by retrospective Indian chants.
A more dense continuation falls into the rut of modernity with airy synthesizer additives. As soon as the first side crosses the equator, acid projections mixed with Italian classics and a little whimsical freshness of new disco immediately begin to sound with bright inclusions. The clever alternate combination of the same elements with the addition of high-energy switches to the B side demonstrates a bold modern look at production. Next, a color of intensity appears with a hint of Depeche Mode and Sovietwave, giving way to trance non-trivial indie dance, and then again going into the mysterious haze of acidity.
It’s time for everyone to get their hands on a copy — the collection is already on the shelves!
