Alexei Borisov & Jeff Surak - Ulitsa Novatorov 3"CD-R
Product number.: MASS06
Price: 6,00 EUR(8,92 Dollar)
Two names from the world of underground. Borisov's work was reviewed here before (328, 252) operating in various guises, such as F.R.U.I.T.S., Volga, Nochnoi Prospekt and his own name. Jeff Surak works a V, Violet and in another time as -1348- and is soon on tour in Europe and Russia. Together they team up for a four track, three inch CDR. 'Radioalmaata' is the opening piece and the longest of the CD. It's a bit of mish-mash of synths, samples and radio voices, that half way through changes mood, and seems to become a different track. Track two and four on this release are more rhythmically inspired, and vaguely hint at techno, but in a slightly more industrial vein, whilst the third track is more an ambient soundscape piece in which street sounds play an important role. I think I like these more than the first piece. Overall a nice collaboration of two guys that mastered various skills quite nicely.
