Valentine Yakovlev alias Talipes Valgus is a remarkable composer from St. Petersburg, Russia. He is in love with lazy beats and sampling instruments to a near infinite number of times to create rare sounds. Breathing vocals with a luminous background until everything turns to a beautiful melancholic and unpredictably sly tune.

He takes inspiration from contemporary fine art. Valentine believes in the notion that fine art and music can’t live without each other just like Cola and BigMac. In particular, ’Sly’ was inspired by fine art of Brendan Monroe, who kindly agreed to use his work for the cover.

Sly provides a soft pulsating glow and naive young spirit mood, it builds into a thunderous theme full of the beauty of natural phenomena and fever. As it progresses tender synth keys emerge and the blur of a robot voice. Sly is a story about rhythmic beginnings leading to the placid, but unavoidable process of decay.

Analogue hardware: guitar Fender Stratocaster, microphone Shure SM58, midi keyboard Roland A-49
