His initial album "That Much Closer To The Sun" was released in 2004 on Liquid Sound Design. It appealed to both fans of psychedelic and balearic chillout.

Absolutely top notch producer whose music stands on its own and cannot really be compared to anyone else. We got our first taste of Abakus on LSD with his downtempo/chill album That Much Closer To The Sun, in my opinion an excellent collection of work. But it was clear early on that Abakus was going to fall in love with dance music, and I'm eternally grateful he did, because he has an innate talent for making funky, atmospheric, dark yet uplifting music that treads the line between techno, electro and house. Russ has gone back to the downtempo world with his more recent work (at the time of this review), and I can only wait in anticipation for his next foray into dance music again. A personal favorite and someone I would be beyond honored to share the decks with one day!
