Because of the Ukraine crisis we decided it is not appropriate to release this EP at this moment. Andrey made this music over a year ago, being inspired by classic scifi novels. Little did we know a year ago that this dystopian war theme would become a reality…

Russian electro specialist Sinitsin invites us deep into a dystopian world at war on his new EP for LDI Records. His four originals come backed with standout remixes from Umwelt and Privacy.

Andrey Sinitsin hails from Moscow and started out playing drums in rock bands. But his love of experimentation and exploration took him into the world of electronic music where he now cooks up his own fusions of IDM, techno and electro. So far it has come on labels like Ukonx Recordings, Urban Connections and Raw Russian, where he released his forward-thinking За Бортом LP in 2020.

He opens up his LDI Records debut with ‘Perfect Killing Machine’ a raw, textural electro track with grizzly bass and edgy synth lines that convey a sense of heading into battle. ‘PKD’ is a slick and slippery electro tune with sci-fi melodies and deep space atmospherics. The turbulent bassline again conveys that sense of intergalactic warfare while ‘Across the Desert Sands’ layers up coruscated bass, neck-snapping snares and deep, gurgling acid lines into a dynamic track that bristles with pent-up tension.

The always fierce and analogue-loving Umwelt is an electro mainstay who runs four of his own labels including Shelter and Rave Or Die. His take on ‘Across The Desert Sands’ has caustic synths and brutal snares making for a dark and intense electro trip powered by an unrelenting bassline. Privacy then steps up, having established himself on labels like Klakson and Lobster Theremin. His remix is a straight-up banger, with bouncy rubbery drum programming and zipping synths racing into the future backed by smooth and serene chords. Last of all comes ‘Ruined’, a five-minute emotional masterpiece with melancholy chords and downbeat drums run through with a warped acid line that brings a subtle sense of hope.

This is a cinematic electro EP full of adventure and invention.
