Vakula Firecracker EP 5
Other Lands. Pattern Transform. A long known staple of the Scottish imprint, they themselves seem equally as perplexed as we are- but we can all agree that it's certainly not altogether unpleasant. Boss man Lindsay Todd describes it as 'occupying the space between Vakula Firecracker EP 5 exotica, classic jacking house workouts and a BoC 'Chromakey Dreamcoat' kinda vibe'.
From the swirling and hypnotic esoterica of "Descent Into Nasqueron" to the brooding journey into the abyss that is "Chapel Perilous Closed". Then comes the EP's most accessible track "Late Feeling Yourself", a smoky, sexed-up, late-night deep house jam that calls to mind his usual work or that by label staple Linkwood.
Everyone Is A Door. Very little is known about him, and he's hardly prolific - in fact, this debut album is only his second release, after 's acclaimed and now devilishly hard to find Accents 12" on Scenario. The mystery is heightened by his scattergun approach to music-making; Everyone is a Door's 10 tracks variously take in warm, jazz-flecked analogue Vakula Firecracker EP 5, Eric Satie style piano movements, quirky ambience, Boards of Canada-ish IDM and decidedly cosmic synth wig-outs.
Throughout, there's an off-kilter, soft focus feel to proceedings that's never less than thrillingly atmospheric. Everyone is a Door, then, is an impressive debut album; expect to hear more from the mysterious Roman in coming years. Rings Around Saturn. Unthank Steven Legget. Firecracker EP 5. Unthank Vakula Firecracker EP 5 2. If this year is going Vakula Firecracker EP 5 be dedicated to anyone, Ukraine's favourite son must surely be on the list - treating our ears and your hips to a veritable bounty of expert releases on numerous labels of high repute - Dekmantel, 3rd Strike and Ethereal Sounds to name but three.
Anyone who has indulged in just one of the aforementioned releases should need no prompting to check this ten inch - with Vakula drawing on a surfeit of influences such as AFX, Claro Intelecto and DBX across the three untitled tracks. The A Side is where the deepness lies whilst the flip contains an expansive deviation into subaqueous, stripped down, hypnotic minimalism.
Don't be expecting "A Tender Place" Mk2 but do expect to be seriously impressed. Named in honour of the Ukrainian cultural icon Taras Vakula Firecracker EP 5 opposed to the one time free scoring forward Andrei and rumoured to be closely affiliated with the Firecracker imprint upon which Vakula first came to our attention, it's a stellar first release that gives further credence to the Vakula Firecracker EP 5 opinion Vakula can do no wrong.
The Gorgon Sound Find Jah Way track sees Vakula indulge in some smudged out beatdown business on "Deaf World Dub " which draws you on a kaleidoscopic journey to the lower echelons of hypnotic, fluttering house music.
Obvious sonic references to Detroit pervade the track but it's indelibly marked with the graceful Eastern European touch of Vakula. It proves to be a subtler yet equally potent example of the producer's lack of interest in traditional house music structures. Hopefully Vakula will continue to release music of this standard long after we run out of superlatives. The main recording alias of Ukrainian Mikhaylo Vityk, Vakula first emerged in with a succession of singular deep house explorations for respected hubs such as Dekmantel, Ethereal Sounds, 3rd Strike and Firecracker offshoot Shevchenko an as the extended title suggests this album focuses on unreleased material from this same period.
Musically, the tone mirrors Vityk's material for Shevchenko, taking the mainframe of house and melding it with elements of "Ukrainian folk melodies, esoteric cryptic rhythm patterns, field recordings, interludes and overgrown organic effects hidden beneath acres of cosmic murk. Shevchenko 2. Again referencing the cultural heritage of his homeland, with a hand stamped quote from foremost Ukrainian poet Leysa Ukrainka, Vakula's first release in a minute begins with the aptly titled "You Cannot Resist".
Heavy jacking rhythms combine superbly with guttural filtered tones and are countered by the rising crescendo of glistening piano touches and far reaching pads across the opening few moments.
However, as with seemingly every production from Vakula, the ease with which he travels through various sonic moods within the space of a track simply captivates. Chute Libre Chute Libre and there's so much detail to the ecstatic rhythmic pulses of "Rural Dances" it's hard to decide what to focus on - perhaps the most immediately satisfying aspect being the bleeping melodies that sound like R2D2 high on MDMA.
Shevchenko 6. This time, however, Vakula Firecracker EP 5 Music" favours a more techno-leaning approach than usual. Swarms of industrial scratches are engulfed into a psychedelic arrangement packed with enough crunches to make your jaw wobble!
Then, the aptly named "Vermona" pays a clear homage to the power of analogue beat arrangement and we're back into more familiar territories as smooth chords and effect-driven rhythms glide over the track. A great addition to an already scintillating catalogue.
Shevchenko 3. Vocals echo around our senses, falling to the depths before rising and shooting in different directions as the track throbs away at your brain. Vakula indulges in some scratchy, abrasions on "Track 2" which makes for the kind of production those with little studio know how will sit through and wallow in a state of confusion as to how he made it.
As ever, it's hard to compare anyone else to what Vakula is doing right now. Vakula feat Dices. Shevchenko 5. The Early Emissions EPs Here, on the suggestively titled "Early Emissions" we see a bunch of early EPs collected together. Elsewhere the dreamy filtered beach funk of "Getting Togetha" and the distant, hazy soul of "Aksman" are further fine examples of the label's strong Johann Sebastian Bach Glenn Gould The Goldberg Variations 1955 Recording. All in all brilliant compilation Lord Creator The Skatalites King And Queen pays Erica You Used To Think to the country's traditional music yet presenting in a modern electronic format.
Highly recommended! The music on offer on the Prima Industria EP is is a fusion between cosmic sounds, proto Vakula Firecracker EP 5, jazz funk and electronica. After the sublime Vakula Firecracker EP 5 that is "Iris Primum" get gets straight down to business on the oddball acid of "Indigo Auctoritas" and a couple of short experimental pieces which make for curious listening. But it's all about the following Cal Tjader Ode To Billie Joe in our opinion, where the intergalactic space funk of "Wise Glaciem" made a nice impression, as did the rather Hieroglyphic Being sounding analogue soul of "Neuter Gyrum".
The flipside is a more mystical affair, shuffling to hypnotic Heiroglyphic melody and shifty, padded bassline that wouldn't sound out of place in an Actress track.

Naturally, the effort from Legowelt proves to be a real highlight, especially when the strains of acid lock in amidst the constantly unravelling analogue oscillations and rough drums, but the other remixes provide enough variety in tempo and feel to ensure this is worth investigation.
