The >Spectrum Riff< EP comes from Moscow based beat maker and full time firefighter Alexander Goryachev, otherwise known as 813. Five original tracks bursting with juicy synth lines, retro drum machines and waves of thick sub bass, culminating in a sound that is one part boogie, one part hip hop, one part electro and three parts forward thinking bass music. Slugabed (Ninja Tune) appears on remix duty with a drum heavy workout full of shuffling percussion, deep basslines and strong melodies. 813 has been operating in the much talked about Russian beat scene for a couple of years, appearing on Error Broadcasts >Fly Russia< compilation and kicking off the RAD Collective label with the >Back in Space Jungle< EP. He has another EP on RAD dropping this year along with other projects and collaborations in the pipeline. As a live act he has supported Moby, DOOM and Hudson Mohawke. The Spectrum Riff EP has been a long time in the making, its been worth the wait.
