Boomkat Product Review:
Gultuskra Artikler returns with six tracks of rewired modern electronic compositions infected with some strange, strange substance for Mille Plateaux. The Russian artist made quite an impression with his releases for Lampse and Room 40 among others, and this release find him deep inside a muddle of magical sounds, unpredictable structures and unstable textures that feel liable to wilt or evaporate at any second. 'Q' is techno removed from the club and placed in the Russian mind, where it becomes incredibly mysterious, arcane and majestic. 'W' probes more abstract and dubby depths, scoping the area with radar bleeps and scuttling drones sent to scout the terrain, while 'E' sinks head first into Jeck-style layers of washed out classical samples arranged with a mouldy organic temperament. 'R' allows the most exquisite synthetic lightshow to take centrestage, before melting into the ominous silicon soup of 'T' and squirming in the scrunched signal distortion of 'Y'.
