Monokle – Backwash


Whereas the first track from Monokle’s second album wandered off into the night alongside the melancholic vocals of Russian singer Milina, the Ki Records producer now moves from a moody intro to more of a scattershot dance track. On “Backwash” the St Petersburg born artist focuses on the club oriented side of his productions and delivers an after-hours gem ready to keep the dance-floor moving and dreaming. Here’s what Monokle (AKA Vlad Kudryavtsev) had to say about it:

I wrote this album for about a year. This music is probably a little different from my previous works but the overall theme as always are melancholic melodies, ambient, noise, bouncy rhythms, and beautiful vocals. Most of the album was recorded in a village in the very north of Russia. I moved here recently from St. Petersburg and decided to stay for a while and soak in the very special atmosphere of this place. On some of the tracks my good friend and collaborator Milinal helped with the production and also lent me his voice, for which I am very grateful to him.

New album “Rings” out 14th September 2015 on Ki Records.
