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
