Les patrons de Kvitnu fêtent les 12 ans du label sur ce split EP aux rouleaux-compresseurs post-techno ténébreux. En offrant à prix libre ce deux-titres de techno tribale et dystopique, les fondateurs de Kvitnu, Kotra et Zavoloka (également aux manettes du projet Cluster Lizard dont l’énorme Prophecy a marqué notre année électro) font d’une pierre […]

The record opens with the writhing waves of The Capital Of Death – Contorted City on Kotra‘s new album Freigeist. Dmytro Fedorenko, the Vienna-based Ukranian artist/producer who co-runs the fantastic Kvitnu label has been bending sounds like these since the early 90’s – but here he’s on to something more subtly cerebral than ever. The […]
Kotra is Dmytro Fedorenko, Ukranian hero and prolific producer of own brand of minimisto-agresso electronica. Continues to operate the Kvitnu label, only now doing it from Austria instead of home country I believe. We’ve been digging these Kvitnu steel-belted thumpers for many years now, and even if not every one is a gem, there is a […]

Fedorenko started Kotra in 1998 and since then has built up a sizable discography. “Freigeist” is Kotra’s most recent release, having come out in January this year – […]

Following his solo release ‘Cicada’, reviewed in Vital Weekly 1104 and his collaboration with Edward Sol (Vital Weekly 1111) there is yet another new solo release called ‘Freigeist’. Quite a short release, lasting just under thirty minutes, but maybe that is because […]
