about

Ukrainian, Yuri Lugovskoy remains that rarest of things, a genuinely mysterious and enigmatic figure working in the field of underground electronic composition. His work is concerned with minimal, meditative practice. On this outing it yields eight fuzzy, dusty pieces of looping melody and seeping filter adjustments through to canny subbass movements and windswept modulations.

Stripping the sound to its barest bones, Lugovskoy wrings supreme melancholy and a warm, rhythmically pastoral sound from the most basic of sound sources (some of the tracks being assembled from fragments of samples of old ’70’s movies and processed beyond recognition through whatever hardware/software Lugovskoy employs). His unusual loops have a hazy, dream like quality often recalling the low–end hum of late night factories.

The minimalist drift of Wolfgang Voigt's landmark Gas project is brought to mind but Lugovskoy goes one further and removes almost all traces of beats from the work, culminating in a sound which channels BBC Radiophonic Workshop just as enthusiastically as it does Basic Channel or the more contemplative moments of the Raster-Noton canon.

Comes bundled with a raft of remixes/reinterpretations which take Lugovskoy's original works into some unexpected territories.
