The St. Petersburg duo know as Vesna, which means 'spring' in Russian, started in 1998 with Alex Gaponenko and Dimitri Tohernjak. With a couple obscure compilation appearances on Lo Recordings and Cheburec, the good folks at N5MD had the sense to release a Vesna 7" to introduce the American and European scene to this upcoming and outstanding Russian electronic act. Like fellow Russian acts EU, Novel 23, Ambidextrous, and others, the talented duo decided to take the path of their fellow genre countrymen and compose their sound to incorporate crunchy beats, dark synth undertones, and haunting keyboard tinkering. Think of EU meets Autechre's 'EP7' and you've got a good premise for what Vesna's music sounds like. I thoroughly enjoyed this seven-inch, with it's crunchy beats, low-down-dirty basslines, and cavernous tones. With two succulent compilations and the Proem album 'Among Others', this suitable 7" by Vesna is an excellent addition to the already remarkable N5MD catalog. EU fans take note: Vesna will grace your playlist soon enough. Don't pass this one up…
