Ukrainian techno pioneer Stanislav Tolkachev readies his fourth album, ‘It Will Be Too Late Then’, dropping on Krill Music in late May.
With a career spanning over a decade, Stanislav Tolkachev’s consistency as a producer is indisputable. The prolific artist’s ability to think outside the box is unrivalled and his experimental work has appeared on many respected imprints, including M_Rec, Semantica, MORD and Geophone. Berlin-based label Krill Music, originally founded six years ago in Buenos Aires, now prepares to release the producer’s nine track long player ‘It Will Be Too Late Then’ – Tolkachev’s second appearance on the label following a track on Krill’s Habitat VA series in 2015. The album will be pressed in Argentina to support the growth of the Latin American vinyl industry.
Spider-esque melodies inaugurate the release in ‘Ball of fire’ before clattering percussion generates a heightening tension in ‘OK. U can mix this one’, leading into the cavernous and murky ‘Draw me a seal’ and its various machine inspired sounds. Tough kicks and twisted arpeggios form the chaotic ‘Double damage’, making way for a rumbling roller titled ‘The dirty water’.
Tracks like the meandering ‘Truth be told’ demonstrate Tolkachev’s ability to transport listeners into otherworldly territories with its cacophony of intricately placed notes whilst the ominous ‘This game has no name’ possesses sinister stabs and echoing effects. Nearing the end, ‘Curly’ earns its name courtesy of a medley of winding keys until ‘You spoil everything’ concludes the package with raw drums, purring bass and a subterranean aesthetic.
