Brilliant. I'm shocked people are somewhat sleeping on this label. Packaging also phenomenal. This album is so melodic and deep. Truly for all occasions. A cup of tea at 2 or 7 AM in some bunker ! Amazing.

An excellent album from Russia's techno veteran DJ Nocow - aka Alexey Nikitin - portrays an icy St. Petersburg through its frosty minimal beats and languid, ambient melodies.
Things start off pleasantly somnambulant on the mellow openers "Stalactite" and "iAi" - just to be thrown into a wild blizzard of 160bpm beats on "Alunogen", a powerhouse tune that is both hectic and still, akin to being in a sleeping bag in a powerful snowstorm. "The Barrier of Unknown" ("Barrier Neizvesnosty") is reminiscent of Pantha du Prince in its elegant/crisp production and 4/4s, while "Icecutter" ("Ledorub") blisters with acid-y textures over Boards of Canada-like motifs. The album's concluding five tracks examine all styles as well as states of being, from euophoria to glacial indifference.
The 7-minute odyssey "Dying Lights" (Tayut Ogni") marks the highlight of the album, as if Alexey spent a few insomniac, restless weeks of the Petersburg "white nights" roaming around its pale, gorgeous streets as he composed this balletic techno masterpiece. What sounds like otherworldly human choirs are supplemented by swooping synths and chimes that envelop the beat in a blanket both soothing and melancholy.
Nocow once again showcases Russia as a source of great minimal house, ambient and techno music. Don't let this one slip under the ice.
