Next up on No Static we have a fine triple track EP from Russia-based Nikita Kropachev, who is better known under the fine stage name of Diskette. It is a pleasure to welcome Nikita to the label and it is a triple treat of pure quality.
Things open up with the synth-fest 'Don't Look Ahead'. Richocheting square waves start this one off before a rolling synth base and multiple levels of arp synth elevate the musicality. Next up is 'No Rush' which is an altogether more organic affair. Here the bass guitar and choppy funk guitar are deployed to maximum effect before brass and string lines are deployed to crystalize the work.
Things close out with the title track of the EP, 'Kite'. It is a more laid back affair with bass guitar grooves providing a downtempo backing for a guitar vs keyboard lead-line scenario.
