After releasing two EPs for the Ghent-based label, scoring video art, recording numerous remixes, being involved in another project - Ptaki (with a bestselling 12" - 'Krystyna' - last year), Kruczynski calmed things down in 2013 and focused on recording a more complex project.
'LP 1' is a record summing up Kruczynski's perception of music & style, while, at the same time, broadening it even more. The album combines his interest in repetitive minimalism and film music ('Lazienki Park', 'Late Night Sex', 'Water's Edge'), with very direct, yet ethereal club tracks ('Bless Their Little Hearts', 'Earthworks') and romantic/ballad influences, as in the stripped-down version of 'Gothic' - a track he debuted with on Silverback in 2012.
The record is also a meditation on Warsaw with references to its river and parks. The environmental and idyllic elements are present throughout the album, yet instead of being of an escapist nature, they are rather the result of emotion recollected in tranquility, influenced by real life.
It's also an extension of Kruczynski's record crates - with influences ranging from Tangerine Dream soundtracks, descriptive library records, and reflective works of Arthur Russell, to 80's fusion and deep house 12 inches.
