Info:
After gaining support from the likes of Claudio PRC, Cio d’or, Adam X, Dave Clarke, The Hacker, Pfirter and Samuli Kemppi with his Planete Rouge debut, Playground, Russian up-and-comer Alexey Volkov returns with another skulking slab of industrial-inspired techno.

Title track “Dust” launches the EP into an immediately throbbing groove, rung through with the dissonant clangs of the genre’s cold, machine-obsessed heritage. This hydraulic homage is succeeded by “Overshadow”—a closer inspection of techno’s cogs and wheels that sees Volkov tinkering with its parts over 9 minutes of cumulative atmospherics. Endless—the new collaboration between Alistair Wells AKA Perc and Giorgio Gili, based on Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe label—offers a hypnotic remix from their pooled influences of Brian Eno, Byetone, Robert Henke, Irdial and Ifach. Here Volkov’s dark and growling slow-burner is stepped up into an octane workout, dressed with Gili’s minimalistic traits and seasoned with a spot of Perc-style abrasiveness. “Corner” is Dust EP’s provocative closer. Driven by anxious, incessant hats and syncopated hisses it uses suspended melodic morsels to work itself into a beguiling anti-climax that leaves you begging for more.

All in all, Dust EP showcases a linear consciousness with ultra-modern vision from this one-to-watch producer. And as ever, the sleeve artwork has been designed by label honcho and electronic protagonist himself Terence Fixmer.
