Body Varial

Error Broadcast

Released: 15th October 2012 | 6 track leftfield/idm ep

Russia proved to be excellent breeding ground for electronic music in recent years. Central figures of the beat scene publish on well-respected, international record labels, and the 'Fly Russia' movement has been written-up in the most important music blogs and magazines.

The creative potential of Russia, however, has only been hinted. From the moistly underground of the Moscow dungeons dark music seeps into the ears of curious listeners, sounding of excess and alienation, seduction and delimitation. Welcome Oleg Buyanov aka OL.

OL released his first EP with Error Broadcast, followed by a 7 for Faces records. His sound back then was heavily textured, instrumental Hip Hop with a dark edge. OL returned early in 2012 with a split LP back-to-back with Vtgnike (aka Myown). While his style is still recognizable, you can find him experimenting with higher bpm and down-pitched samples.

For his new EP 'Body Varial' OL is embracing both Footwork tempi, the production aesthetics of Trap, and the fathomless echo chambers of Dub. 'Body Varial' is as dark and dangerously brilliant as black snake skin. Its glossy textures flow elegantly though OL messes with pitch and complex percussion quite a bit. The warmth of former production has been replaced by cross-synced synth patches and adventurous harmonic compositions. 'Body Varial' combines sex with musical sophistication, offers common ground for bass nerds and dance folk. An immense record.
