Stanislav Tolkachev – Depth Of Light (M_Rec Ltd Grey Series M_RECLTDGS04 – 2013)
|Release date is in May 2013|
Stas Tolkachev was the first Ukrainian to enter the DJ booth of Berghain and the techno and photo artist from Dnepropetrovsk now lands on Milan’s M_Rec Ltd Grey Series with his solo effort of five tracks.
It’s introduced by a swarm of electric bees illuminating the night (“Depth Of Light”), preparing the entry of agile synth lines and bass knobs in “Like A Cat’s Shadow”. “Break Something That Breaks You” can be filed under proper UK techno (think of 1990’s Surgeon) that tightens the grip with metallic grooves. The B-side opens with the highlight called “No Home No Flag”, a vibrating deep bass and reverb journey and another nod to the floor action makes “Don’t Shit On Your Doorstep”, a dashing tool with caustic notes that gets the message definitely right.
