IN MEMORY OF
The release brings together Stanislav Tolkachev, VSK, JoeFarr
and ONTHEGROUND for a 4 track compilation. Each artist has
contributed a track to the general theme of ‘broken techno’, with
outstanding, stylistically diverse results.

‘Ant Parade’ by Stanislav Tolkachev opens the record with a
hypnotic march. Over a gently lulling rhythm, a bright melody
repeats over an eerie and disorientating soundscape. VSK’s ‘Blue
Snake’ ratchets up the energy, with skittering percussion and
tense, murky bleeps propelling the track frantically onwards.

Nicz records owner Myztical teams up again with Diagenetic
Origin as ONTHEGROUND on ‘Interstellar Gardening’. A sonorous
melody emerges from rattling beats, serving up a heady communion
of intangible, elusive euphoria and melancholy. JoeFarr
concludes the record with ‘I am a Visitor’. Staccato kicks and
fuzzed out synths stretch and twist, while a dislocated, brash
voice announces itself to the listener.

A1 : Stanislav Tolkachev - Ant Parade
A2 : VSK - Blue Snake
B1 : ONTHEGROUND - Interstellar Gardening
B2 : JoeFarr - I Am A Visitor
