Some of the most pleasing and important work done in the Russian the electronica scene over the last few years has come from Krasnodar, located in the nation's (sunny) south. A key player in that scene has been Alexander Tochilkin, who's been part of Fuselab, one of Russia's finest labels. Tochilikin has moved through a number of ensembles as well since 2005, including Feldmaus, Modul and Wols.
Since 2013, Tochilkin is releasing music for his new solo project: Koett. Koett can be described as jazzy, cinematic, acoustic yet very analog and electronic. It is actually very house influenced as well, but not in a way it is done before. We'd like to say Koett sounds as surreal as the artwork of looks, created by Alex Coll.
"Lost Time" is the single of Koett's forthcoming album "Golden Peak", which is scheduled to release in November. A fantastic full length album filled with music of Tochilkin's surrealistic style. But first the single. For this one we have remixes by Sint Petersburg based Monokle and by our man Sau Poler, who released his debut EP earlier this year with us.

This album is simply my favorite of all time. There is melancholy and ecstasy in here; there are stories and experiences and their feelings that lurk in your subconscious, occasionally surfacing in dreams, but always escaping grasp. The sonic detail that Floex crafts is so rarely seen in music, it may be more apt to call this album a sonic sculpture, a sonic painting, or a sprawling work of Gothic sonic architecture. The way I think about music has changed forever; my eternal thanks, Floex! rishdosh
