Muscut / Europe / 2019
We open 2018 with an LP from St. Petersburg musician Eugenii Fadeev (Flaty). Raising the attention of the musical community with his work for the 12th Isle and GOST ZVUK labels as AEM Rhythm Cascade, he's also recently released on Udacha and his own label ANWO as Dada Ques. In addition to the aforementioned, Flaty also adopts such aliases as Ocurob and Wrong Water. Under that last name he presents this current release of a dozen tracks, most of which were recorded purely using analog instruments. Drawing inspiration from the music of such electronic pioneers as Delia Derbyshire, Bruce Haack, Mort Garson and others, Wrong Water is an attempt to qualitatively re-think the heritage of the 70's and 80's. Thus, through tireless experimentation, Fadeev manages to create his own inimitable neo-library parable. Full of graceful flickering stars and midnight tropical breathing, Dozen is a welcome addition to the endlessly fascinating world of Muscut.
