  • Skug reviewed Malfinia Ensemblo

    Diese fröhliche Herkunftsverschleierung muss man sich auf der Zunge zergehen lassen. »Varsofia«, die CD des Malfinia Ensembles, wurde in Warschau eingespielt und auf dem ukrainischen Label Kvitnu veröffentlicht. Die Tracks auf »Varsofia« kommen in einem Hinkebeinspanischdaher (z. B. »La Universo Estas Atomo«), die beiden dafür verantwortlichen Herren (Andi Stecher & The Norman Conquest) stammen wiederum […]
  • New review for Asolaar’s “Interceptor”

    Had Suicide successfully evolved from the seventies it might have become Asolaar’s “Interceptor”. Asolaar wastes absolutely no time in setting the physical borderline violent atmospheres. Similar to Pan Sonic’s harsh work, Asolaar tends to work in the lower rumbles of sound making it felt as much as heard. Bass frequencies are phenomenal for the collection. […]
  • Another review for Volya

    The only veritable thing we could say about Ukrainian situation is the fact there is a cruel war where many economical interests are merging into a gory mixture which worms into people’s life in order to exacerbate contrasts, as what is happening in Ukraine has become the testbed of mass-media manipulation by both struggling parties […]
  • Chain D.L.K. review for Asolaar “Interceptor”

    Even if the excellent Ukrainian label Kvitnu situates Asolaar, the brainchild by Argentinean producer Dario Pinto Calvis, in between the artists which fly on the “heavy wing” of its oustanding sonic squadron, it seems that he has slightly softened his sound and such a mitigation is clear since the opening electric peristalsis. His sonorities on […]
  • Santa Sangre zine reviewed Zavoloka’s Volya EP

    ENG: “Volya” is a work of derived from a Kiev artist dealing with both music and visual arts. Kateryna is not a novice – just look at the biographical section on her website to realize that she has achieved a lot, including a “Gaude Polonia” scholarship funded by the Polish Ministry of Culture. “Volya” is her […]
  • Dagheisha about Volya

    Tre brani che sanciscono la definitiva consacrazione internazionale per un’artista di cui si è parlato troppo poco negli ultimi anni. ‘Volya’ significa libertà e per Kateryna Zavoloka x libertà non è soltanto musica elettronica ma anche artwork e potenza delle immagini. Non a caso cura la veste grafica di tutte le release della Kivitnu ed […]
  • Neural about Asolaar’s “Interceptor”

    Back on the scene is Argentinian experimenter Asolaar. Last year, he released an album on Metaphysik, but this latest work has been produced by Kvitnu, a Ukrainian label founded by Dmytro Fedorenko (Kotra), which has focussed on different branches of experimental electronic music. Interceptor comprises ten stinging, raw, dynamic tracks. The textures are very physical […]
  • SeekSickSound reviewed Interceptor

    Depuis 2006, le label ukrainien Kvitnu (Plaster, Sturqen, et même récemment Pan Sonic) est l’un des fers de lance de l’électronique avant-gardiste en Europe orientale. Il enfonce une fois de plus le clou avec cette sortie de l’argentin Asolaar, sur laquelle le dépouillement radical de tout artifice se fait au profit d’un jeu sans fin […]
  • Dagheisha about Asolaar

    Ho scoperto il talento di Dario Pinto Calvis tramite le Vacu Sessions che periodicamente mi vengono girate dalla Kvitnu e poi, recuperando in rete ‘Obliterate’ ed i mini album ‘Grimace’ e ‘Vellocet’ mi sono reso conto delle sue enormi potenzialità. Nella sua proposta vivono due dimensioni parallele, probabilmente non si incontreranno mai ma nulla è […]
  • New review for Matter “Biorhexistasy” LP from Neural

    Hiding behind the moniker Matter, Fabrizio Matrone from Bologna is a member of Kvitnu and an electronic manipulator focused on compound electronic sounds that are highly rhythmic and analogue. This latest release follows Solid State, published in 2012, which was also produced by Ukrainian Dmytro Fedorenko. Here we encounter extremely stylized and theoretical techno music. […]
