Vivi.St (real name Aurelian Stoleriu) makes a return to the Russian imprint, Eighteenthirtyeight with the two tracker ‘Foggy’ EP. Having previous experience through his work as a sound designer, it’s no surprise how fast the Romanian has managed to put out such an impressive release.
This is his second work on the Russian label and it includes two original tracks full of powerful sounds. Vivi St is definitely passionate about producing beats and rhythms. His works involve a great deal of chords, wobble bass and drum machines.
‘09.1’ comes in as a rough, somewhat lofi blend of sonic clarity and honesty. The use of heavy processing on the dub-esque chords is aided gently by raw percussion and a sense of traditional rhythm.
While ‘09.2’ is a much cleaner, rolling club track that features the same style of chords and percussive hits, but is set much more focused on the peak time DJ set.
1 Vivi St – 09.1
