killer stuf on klasse wrecks sub label zodiac! frozen russian plains rich with moondust and cybo-fog lie still. a faint rumble is heard from behind the horizon and buttechno checks his pulsemeter 5000. deciding to head on whilst he still can. sonic lighting strikes the dead earth. leaving echoes that reverberate for miles around as digital feedback waves sore through the airless landscape. buttechno steadies his exxo-bike. firing the back up atomic engine before taking a deep breath and heading into the lost and forgotten city. zcapri is the seventh of 12 releases from z o d i a c 4 4. one for each sign of the stars and then z o d i a c 4 4 is forever dead and gone. forever gone and dead.

“day of my death” by pavel milyakov. also known as buttechno. is his 8th release coming out this year. it consists of 6 pieces which were composed for gosha rubchinskiy s/s 17 show and performed in a extraordinary place in florence which is depicted on the front cover. mostly ambient. overdriving noise soundscapes and spoken word collages referring to the dreamy mood of the show. this work is more serious and mature than milyakov’s previous releases. exploring deeper and sacred images of his world.
having lurked around murky corners of the grubby industrial techno realm for the past year or so. pavel milyakov builds on his rapidly swelling discography with this transmission for public system. it s the second release on the label following a strong opening salvo from dj spider and greypeople. and this 12- offers up further forthright club-wreckers that balance taut functionality with production flair. opening cut -strainn- delivers bludgeoning electro from the netherworld. which ekman then dutifully reworks with an added eerie tension. there are edgy arpeggios aplenty on -trance t- and warmer tones in -augusts 13-. rounding out an essential slab of serious techno tackle.
yalta is a resort city on the southern coast of the crimean peninsula surrounded by the black sea. this place has heavily influenced a talented artist pavel milyakov also known as buttechno. this album is his dedication to yalta. but it’s not just about geographical location. it’s about a special and sacred state of mind and soul that the producer calls -yalta-. this very personal work of a mature author reflects his deep and multifaceted approach to the research of the sound language.
buttechno is pavel milyakov. an unknown music producer from moscow suburbs and one of the local rising underground scenes leading voices. his debut record sport is a soundtrack to russian designer gosha rubchinskys aw15 fashion show and this synthy. spasmodic music proves to be as fresh as rubchinskys works. the world of buttechno is dark. experimental and ever changing whether he djs or plays live. he puts audience in a state of deep self-reflective meditation with a variety of tools ranging from astonishing post apocalyptic techno soundscapes to melancholic house structures.
various artists including buttechno. broshuda. garrett david. steven warwick and more... each track was composed with the theme of apophenia in mind (the tendency to perceive connections and meaning between unrelated things). keeping a foot between club and experimental material. this record is a complement to a contemporary exhibition in berlin and a 122 pages book.

the third release by the paris based public system recordings knows no bounds or borders. a massive 2x12 inch compilation featuring the likes of fallbeil. innsyter. morah. buttechno and many more from the realms of heavy rust and wild animals. the heart beat of industrial noise resonating through weathered metal surfaces. psr003 is certainly writhing with wild tribal movement informed by the ferocity of feverish drum programming. waterlogged flanging and carefully degraded waveforms creating this fully engrossing and almost unclassifiable techno selection. it certainly puts an emphasis on the body aspect of ebm.
