    Very few Russian electronic artists scored a success, Fizzarum did.
    It's easy to recognize Ae influence in the album. Obviously lads had been listening to their tracks very carefully and then didn't copy but reinvented Ae style. This album is a jewel and it's very sad that Fizzarum couldn't excel it in further releases.
    Filled with basslines, Asian motif (in "Micanex" which perhaps drops a hint at "Rsdio") and hidden logic their music will make you guess a formula to comprehend it which is what you need. Did I say music? It's rather pure math.

      What we have here is some kind of a proof that Russians are the best mathematicians, scientists and engineers in the world.

      Sound is perfect. Mastering of this work is just stunning: razorsharp crafted samples threated with amazing DSP. Pure, artificial rhythms/sequences surrounded by some of the most beautiful and touching melodies musica electronica has to offer.

      Too bad that guys weren't able to repeat "Monochrome's" success with other releases which, in my opinion, aren't even close to this one.

        In the great soviet tradition of supremacists and constructivists, Vlad and Dmitry are looking forward to the musical future. They'd tell you that the were influenced by the adventures of Autechre in the land of asymmetries, although they think they are "a bit too abstract and mathematical", by Depeche Mode "because their tunes are so romantic" and by Jean-Michel Jarre, "the first synthesiser show man". Sharing similar aesthetic choices than other Russian bands such as EU and Solar X, Fizzarum first had to deal with the problem of the artistic isolation behind the now dead iron curtain is the main problem before being able to release their compositions of the mp3 format. Yet it is on the English label Domino that their real first album "Monochrome Plural", a modest manifesto of Slav electronica, is now released. Even if they are interested in the complexity of the composition, the research for melody remains the pair’s main concern.
