Arma continues to explore the dark and wild corners of contemporary machine music via a new split 12′ featuring Lvrin and Maoupa Mazzocchetti. Lvrin occupies a sound world where blown out boxes spit out gnarled beats and slimy basslines through an overdriven sesk, with the ghosts of post punk and industrial looming over his nocturnal incantations. Maoupa Mazzocchetti has been weaving defiantly unconventional strains of electronic music. He delivers hhree rugged, body-poppin’ grooves to the B side.
The Russian cats are rolling frozen melons on you this winter. Slow hypnotic grooves that will cool you down on the dancefloor, and A Vega style to heat you up on your way home through the snow wheel. This will get you through the night alright.
Digital Tsunami presents this summer their 3rd rave camp in the wild Lithuania forests, with an insane line-up that makes us droll.
Jenya Lavrinov is a young rising musician from Russia and LVRIN is the alias for the gloom side of his productions. All six tracks for this EP were made during last year under the red lights of Jenya’s home studio. As before LVRIN adheres to the one take method of recording as the best technique of dealing with the sound and with the moment. Setup for this EP in particular consisted of Akai MPC 1000, Yamaha AN200, Analogue Solutions TBX-303, MFB-Synth II, Polivoks and a couple of effects pedals.
