[GOST017] Wulffius — "Sorang" LP
kausto posted a topic in New & Upcoming ReleasesSorang, the debut album of Yalta native Wulffius, represents his work over the last eight years. The playful creature on the cover, Stone Eater, is based on childhood sketches of the producer's father. The album's name alludes to the first collection of his father's poems, which took its name from a short story by Konstantin Paustovsky, a master of nature writing in Russian prose. Sorang is the name of the south wind that "blows once in centuries," and you can hear its unique warmth in these tracks. There is a sense of wholeness here, a palpable style and atmosphere that permeates the individual pieces. Wulffius creates what he refers to as "B-sides": something too strange to be danceable, with "complex ease" and rhythmical variety. The music has a charming serenity and beauty thanks to Wulffius' intuitive approach, which is childlike and whimsical in the best possible sense. By the way, Paustovsky wrote Sorang in an hour and a half at a speed writing competition. You can hear a similar spontaneity here, but make no mistake, this is the work of a master that has been crafted over a period of years. It all comes from experience.

Kuzma Palkin — Stadion Sever [MEM01]
kausto posted a topic in New & Upcoming ReleasesEst. 25 Jun 2021 Juno Saint Petersburg-based Kuzma Palkin returns to GOST Zvuk with a new series, Memont. GOST has been expanding its presence for several years through sublabels Instrument and Archive, as well as releases from GOST family members on their own labels. Flaty's experiments can be found on the ANWO label, while OL has issued a number of releases through Asyncro. For Palkin, Memont represents a return to his roots. The artwork for the first release, stadion sever, features the original packaging of Moment universal superglue, something that will be familiar to every Russian who lived through the 1990s. The album is named after the eponymous stadium in Palkin's hometown of Severodvinsk, which is displayed on the back cover. Sever represented a kind of playing field in childhood, but has now come to stand in as a metaphor for daily life. The visual landscape of modern Russian life points back to Sever. Musically, stadion sever is also a return to Palkin's roots. The echoes of early IDM that kickstarted his career in the beginning of the 2000s are on display here. While the music is thoughtful and attentive to detail, traces of irony can be identified among the seriousness, not least in the title of the series and the track synth1 power user. The same ironic touch makes its mark on the album's sound. Palkin borrows the recognizable textures of club music, but drastically modifies their context and transforms them into something altogether more thought-provoking and inscrutable. Palkin's unique sound and the beauty of his music can be found in the balance between retrospection and looking ahead, where austerity meets humour.
[GOST013] Gost Zvuk - GOST ZVUK 5 YEARS
kausto posted a topic in New & Upcoming ReleasesFive years ago, the expression ‘Russian electronic scene’ had borne a tone of futurology and expectancies rather than a real state of affairs. It was possible to put together musicians of local and genre importance easily in general, but not of significance in national scale. With rise and further development of ГОСТ Звук, Russian electronic music achieved power not only as cultural phenomenon within country’s borders, but also proved fully to be a thing of international meaning. Starting operations in 2014, the label quickly defined its domains of authority and engagement and created full-bloody community of musicians, where everyone has a special view on his own work and unique sound. The projects presented on this compilation can be rightfully called the contemporary vanguard of Russian and global electronic music. Each of resonant artists holds his own disparate creative field and impact. However, in this diversity the unity of creation of beauty and ingenuity is born, that distinguishes Russian independent electronica. All compiled tracks perfectly characterize the artists involved, sometimes from extremely striking sides; chaotic improvisations and ethereal grooves, unearthly landscapes and undistracted concisions. Both electric boffinry and club anthems merge into united vision, placed in graceful frame of Rashad Becker’s mastering. Maybe this compilation won’t close the question ‘What is the Russian Sound?’, which has been raising for more than a twenty years. Nevertheless, it is able to give an extensive view on the evolution of Russian electronica in the 2010s. Preview: Preorder: https://gostzvuk.com/album/gost-zvuk-5-years
[GOST012] INFX — "Fences of Metal"
kausto posted a topic in New & Upcoming Releaseshttps://soundcloud.com/gost-zvuk-records/gost012_infx Gost Zvuk continues its journey to the depth of today’s Russia experimental music scene with the debut EP from ИНФХ, yet another emerging artist from country’s capital Moscow. Young muscovite prefers to work on the margins of popular electronic music genres, using the complex broken rhythmical architecture to create his own kind of introverted club tracks for highly observant and thoughtful listeners. The resulting music is an ever-changing, multifaceted and polychromatic living organism with a constantly mutating structure — a truly unique piece of art that should not be overlooked. ГОСТ012: ИНФХ "Fences of Metal" is already available at Hard Wax, "Ace, smartly stepping IDM EP". Coming to all worldwide shops tomorrow.
[GAR001] Mikhail Chekalin – "Ecstatic Lullaby"
kausto posted a topic in New & Upcoming ReleasesCheck this out For Russian electronic music, Mikhail Chekalin is not only a major character, who has affected the scene's establishment and development, but also a kind of symbolic figure. His music has been praised by many in the West - from journalists and critics of all kinds to Frank Zappa and Karlheinz Stockhausen, while in Moscow Chekalin's name was excluded from the official cultural agenda for a long time: he was accused of propaganda of foreign 'pro-Western' aesthetics and up until the end of the 80's wasn't allowed to release his works or travel abroad. This, however, didn't interfere with him recording dozens of innovative electronic compositions and contributing greatly to the development of unofficial Soviet art in general - for example, providing sound design for the famous exhibitions of 'Twenty Moscow Artists' on Malaya Gruzinskaya or arranging the first audiovisual performances on a specially constructed 'light organ'. However, just like all great artists, Mikhail himself prefers to focus not on personal achievements, but on creativity. 'I don't have a biography - only a discography' - this quote of the author may become an entry point of sorts into the compilation presented. This archival collection of works recorded within the period from 1978 to 1987 are Chekalin's multigenre experiments ranging from spatial music (in essence, ambient's precursor) to more contemporary synthesizer and post-symphonic compositions.
[GOST011] AEM Rhythm-Cascade — "Litie" 2xLP
kausto posted a topic in New & Upcoming ReleasesNew forthcoming GOST ZVUK release by Flaty On the sixth double LP in the label's catalogue the Saint Petersburg-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Flaty presents another phase in the development of his project AEM Rhythm-Cascade. The sound of the record is kept true to the stylistic vector defined by the artist way back on one of the first Gost Zvuk's releases, a three-tracker with its main hit «Vspominafoniya» («Memoryphonics») currently enjoying a well-deserved status as the de facto anthem of the label. On his new album «Lit'yo» («Metal casting») Flaty continues to experiment with various dance music genres, attempting to bring diverse stylistic features to a common denominator, a perfect «golden ratio». With his strict and thorough approach to sound synthesis and arrangement, keen attention to detail and «deep» sound atmosphere, here he designs rhythmic structures almost organic, the pulse of percussion smooth and fluid without a slightest hint of technological engineering. The spirit of this quest for flawless harmonic proportion is also present in the symmetric design of the album: two records hold twelve tracks, three on each side. GOST011: AEM Rhythm-Cascade "Litie" Side 1 А1: New Day (6:02) А2: Mimicore (4:33) А3: Soap Water (4:30) Side 2 B1: Spiral (5:30) B2: Razmetka (4:26) B3: Serviz (5:28) Side 3 C1: L–Expo (5:26) C2: Orange (3:48) C3: Partial Presence (4:16) Side 4 D1: Volnushka (5:18) D2: Plaksa (5:40) D3: Emulsiya (4:45) producer — Flaty mastering — Simon Davey photo — Ernest Yakovlev design — Pavel Milyakov executive producer — Ildar Zaynetdinov St. Petersburg city 2 x 12" LP, full colour print June 2018, Russian Federation. © «ГОСТ ЗВУК»

[GOST008] AudioSAPR - AudioSAPR 2x12" LP
kausto posted a topic in New & Upcoming ReleasesOut now. Press-release: Audiosapr is one of the most consistent albums you're likely to come across in Russia's GOST ZVUK entire back catalogue. Surprisingly, the full-length by Saint-Petersburg's scene veteran Kuzma Palkin is a compilation of random jams and studio recordings he made in the period of 2014-2015, carefully pieced together by label's masterminds. SAPR stands for the System of Automatic Projection (a Russian term for Computer-Aided Design, CAD) which defines the album's experimental yet complex and interlocking heart. Based around a central theme of immediacy and spontaneity, Audiosapr builds upon the foundations of early, pre-Detroit era of electro and techno, and then progresses the wispy entrails of analogue gear in a contemporary dancefloor direction. It's clearly music that can be attributed as hybrid, however it's not you're going to think about while listening to Audiosapr, Palkin's definitely most inspiring work to date. hardwax clone juno
