OBLACHNOST EP VINYL ONLY
12" Vinyl NL
St. Petersburg Sound Systems aka HOAVI & TSKTCH represent the sound of their city on this elegant and moody 5-tracker.
The two have been widely known for their solo projects, with releases ranging from every kind of genre you could only think of. No wonder that the production versatility has brought them together to collaborate and join the creative forces in studio. Instead of going after a particular sound, the duo was mainly focused on experiments with sound and improvised one-shot jams, results of which were mostly unpredictable, yet unique and unearthly.
The sound shaped by the cultural capital of Russia we could describe as a mysterious pathway between cinematic ambient and hazy atmospheric dance music. The buildings, the nature, the weather and all the surroundings are translated into the sound reflecting the musicians' connection with the city. All elements on this EP are incredibly well orchestrated and arranged.There are not so many cities that were privileged enough to be associated with a certain music genre like Chicago or Detroit, but we are more than certain that their signature sound is opening a new chapter representing the sound, the sound of Saint-P.
