Boomkat Product Review:
Detroit deity Terrence Dixon lends a hand on a highlight of Karpenov’s effervescent debut album, which uses the abstract language of electronic music to evoke his native Black Sea landscape.
The Dixon link-up ‘Background Data’ is a massive standout deploying fine-tuned synth dissonance shorn of beats, while the rest of the album also impresses with its incredibly sharp sound design on the fluttering hyaline melodies of the title tune and sloshing pulse to ‘1.1’, what sounds like an alien orchestra tuning up in ‘Telpher’, and the stark contrast with its groggiest work, ‘Jet Ski Max’ in collaboration with Kuzma Palkin.
“After three years of deep work, Stas Karpenkov's debut album is released on Gost Zvuk in the form of an abstract, free-form study. The album is saturated with the Black Sea breeze and the natural beauty of the peninsula, a land associated with the life of the author. It’s a musical representation of its surrounding reliefs, an ode to the cyclicity of the waves, and a journey through soundscapes. These manifestations of maritime romance also include the experience of co-producing with Terrence Dixon and Kuzma Palkin on a couple of tracks that play an important role in the idea of the record.”
