  • Vital weekly review for Sokyra

    “Here we have two active forces from Ukraine’s experimental music areas. In the left corner Edward Sol, working with lo-fi, rudimentary equipment, analogue synthesizers and cassette. He has his own Quasi Pop and Sentimental Productions labels, whereas in the right corner we find Kotra, also known as Dmytro Fedorenko, whose music is rhythmic and made […]
  • Cicada reviewed by Chain D.L.K.

    The info-sheet attached to this new release by Ukrainian label Kvitnu doesn’t mention the reason why the six tracks of this output by label boss Dmytro Fedorenko didn’t reach the audience after they were forged, but better late than never. Actually there’s an analogy between the long delay between the birth and the surfacing of […]

  • Fresh review to “Sokyra”

    “Kotra vs Edward Sol find rhythms with harsh walls of noise on the raw machine grit of “Sokyra”. Representing an interesting mixture of power electronics, industrial funk, and dance, the songs unfold with jagged distorted grooves. By far the most compelling thing about the entire collection is the adherence to unusual textures, ones that feel so simple yet […]
  • Another good review for Mingle’s Ephemeral

    “It seems that the inventive Italian sound-maker Andrea Gastaldello, the real name of the man behind the Mingle curtains, picks single adjectives to describe the “property” of the tracks he embeds in his releases. It’s just a personal impression and it’s valid only for the stuff he dropped on Ukrainian label Kvitnu. The first output, […]
  • A story behind Sokyra

    In January 2014 Ukraine was in fire of revolution. Central streets of it’s capital Kyiv were in flames, police violence reached it’s absurd maximum, people stopped waiting for a peaceful miracle and started real fight. Terms like Molotov cocktail, gas grenade or rubber bullets very fast became a part of everyday conversation. And Sokyra is […]
  • Collaboration between Kotra and Edward Sol is out today!

    Please welcome our new release KOTRA vs EDWARD SOL – SOKYRA A short story of two gentlemen traveling in a car to a riot streets with a trunk full of explosives, gas masks and other special goods, discussing wether they should take a sharp old axe with them or not.

  • A review for Redukt “Otho”

    “Each track of this EP – the catchy debut release of Redukt, the project by Moscow-based electronic noise craftsmen Alexander Vasiliev and Nikolai Turchinski – got titled as a permutation of the main title and such a choice could make sense, as some aural elements are like constants that get thatched in different set-ups to […]
