Various Artists (Anton Kubikov, Kirill Matveev, Raf) – STK03 [Stackenschneider]
Russian imprint Stackenschneider reveals its third Various Artists compilation with Anton Kubikov, Kirill Matveev and Raf being the ones behind the production this time. STK03 features 5 tracks that incorporate various influences from minimal, breaks and electro, elegantly crafted by the artists into a thrilling narrative that stands as a reminder for those beautiful moments spent behind the decks at the notorious nightclub located in the central area of St. Petersburg.
Anton Kubikov opens the VA with “Joy”, revealing an ethereal composition designed with intricate drumming patterns, funky synth sequences, deep basslines and ever-evolving, warm background textures. The stripped-down percussion leaves enough space for all the other layers to create a hypnotic rotation perfect for the afterhours. Following, Kirill Matveev goes for a more uplifting scenario with “Restore Previously Saved Game”, bringing to the table a more syncopated narrative flavoured with electric riffs, wobbling chords and progressive arrangements ready to spice up any selection or playlist.
Side B is dedicated to Raf who drops an incandescent IDM vibe with the opening cut “Dusted Parts” which spirals around prominent synth stabs carefully modulated around sharp filters and uplifting melodies. The journey continues with “I Left To Baza”, showcasing an engaging electro-infused rhythm and shapeshifting breakdowns that can make anyone start moving their body in an instant and closes with the melancholic vibrations of “Elektro Drama”, making this 12″ a must-have for selectors and collectors around the world. Amazing production right here!
