Vladimir Dubyshkin is one premier example of how this culture yields wildly exciting finds. Listening to how sweepingly effective his de-centered vision of techno is, its hard to believe that this actually is his first fully fledged vinyl release.
Hailing from Tambov, a city of 280.000 souls 460 km southeast of Moscow, Vladimir Dubyshkin is a regular of Zabelins show and has contributed tracks to two compilations on Nina Kravizs TRIP label another major force in bringing great techno from the fringes of the former Soviet Union to the attention of the world.
The For Various Reasons EP, coming in two separate installments, now shows the full picture of Dubyshkins special talents. Highly energetic, rave-infested analog techno with de-tuned melodies rubbing against take-no-prisoners basslines. There is an intense emotional component present at all times, typically missing in Western grayscale techno. And once again, the great promise of participation of techno has been proved alive and well, with the freshest contribution coming from the least expected of places.
