A reviewer recently described the Russian Linesman as a "modern day composer", and that's a description that fits well with his creative ethos. 'The Eysenck Suite III - Sanguine' is the third in a series of four EPs - 'The Eysenck Suite I-IV' - that explore the psychology of Hans Eysenck's four temperamental categories and the emotions they encompass.
'The Eysenck Suite III - Sanguine' is the next instalment of his experimental aural jigsaw puzzle and is focused on the Russian Linesman's musical interpretation of the Sanguine temperament that is characterised by cheery optimism - the type of people whom are pleasant to be around. According to the Greeks, the Sanguine type has a particularly abundant supply of lifeblood. This 3rd EP is characterised by a jubilant and wholesome sound. Forget the past, the future shouldn't be a burden, just enjoy the now.
This new series has already seen the enigmatic artist receive support and plaudits from a disparate collection of respected DJs and Producers, including Max Cooper, Steve Miller (Afterlife), C-Jay (Bedrock), Nemone (BBC 6Music), Samy Birnbach (DJ Morpheus), and Quivver (on John Digweed's Transitions Radio Show). The Russian Lineman has become a somewhat cult figure over the past eleven years, crossing paths with other mavericks such as James Holden, Nathan Fake, Ryan Davis, Applescal and Laurent Garnier, along the way.
