Anfisa Letyago hits the ground running with the ambient-infused, chest beating rhythm - 'Nisida'. Shackling percussion communicates fluently with rattling hi-hat patterns to create decadent layers of techno elegance. A carefully modulated synthesiser melody appears to chase the drum sequence throughout the arrangement's main body, circling gleefully around the stereo field like a shamanic ritual. Anfisa's own ethereal vocal shots glide through the mix to establish key moments of anticipation.
'Insidia' sensually evolves into a dazzling menagerie of rising pads and fizzing synth-lines. A rounded four-to-the-floor kick drum drives the track with subtle yet consistent affirmation, the minimalistic approach to the groove's main elements only serves to bolster the arrangement as one can truly appreciate every layer. Anfisa boldly follows with 'Not There', a significantly gritty low-end carries a glimmering arpeggiator ensemble through the entirety of the EP's closing moments. The undeniable glow of the composition's melodic elements pairs perfectly with the staggering undertow of kicks and low-slung toms.
Two extra tracks can found on the digital release, where Rising Sun' plunges deeper into the darker reaches of techno's diaspora with its deep pulsating bass, snappy percussion work and a break down that teases the listener with its futuristic synth work. Its definitely the darker track of the release. She closes out with 'Don't Hide', a downtempo minimal beat, with the use of her own eerie vocals. Anfisa comes armed and ready for the return of the dance, and after successful releases on Hotflush and Rekids, she has a lot of exciting new releases to deliver this year.
