about

Following on from a number of remarkable vinyl cuts on Bristol’s Immerse Records, St. Petersburg’s Stanislav Sevostyanikhin returns with the first new Kontext mini album in almost four years, with the most cogitative and self-reflective one to date.
As if being himself in a sonically altered state of consciousness, Stanislav manipulates crepuscular soundscapes and artfully programmed rhythms channelling the aural feel of solitude to the listeners, putting you into a sort of outerworld yet internally-focused context.
Opening with some creepy voice samples captured from vintage Soviet psychiatric records (‘Preamble’) Side A features producer’s trademark murky dubtech with its stomping beats, playful percussions and Detroit-like synth chords.
Further Side B unveils a wide range of maneuvers and stunts that have been previously kept in secret in Kontext’s music production arsenal: vinegary bleeps and synth lines (‘Acid Shower’), an eerie mantra-esque verses by featuring Ukranian poet Liza Gotfrik (‘Emergence’) and an obscure dub piece unexpectedly turning into a rave party in purgatory (‘A Man Who Escaped’).
As Klammklang’s first release, ‘Dysphoria’ also defines a vector for label’s further development. And yes, it’s all about darkness.
