Four advanced dancefloor cuts from Moscow’s Alexey Devyanin under his Pixelord moniker. Taking the reins of an exciting new chapter for his country’s club music and leading the way through Russian juke, emotive digitalism and half-stepping bass works Pixelord is spearheading a burgeoning Russian scene.

Opening with the unmistakably Chi-Town indebted beat patterns of ‘Been Lookin’, the EP outlays the 2012 Pixelord dynamic; heavy trippin’ juke rhythms, pitched down ghost MC’s duetting with their angelic female counterparts, and sky high synths that sear their way across the heart.

‘Freeze The Star’ takes this template and twists it into a deeply layered ode to trap, part low swung call-to-arms, part melancholy reflection. Complete with Q-Tip’s heavily treated vocal sample and looped r’n’b couplets, the tracks multitude of components oscillate around each other, dipping and weaving throughout the waveform to create something equal parts solid and elegant.

‘Paperball’ follows, acting as a frenetically percussive demonstration of this artist’s programming chops - all tempered hand claps and rolling 303 drums - before finally ‘Vibrate’ rounds things off with perhaps a more recognizable UK lean. Gloopy, rumbling melodies scale their way across galvanized percussion, as stuttered MDMA-dipped synth work creating the perfect foil for the tracks second drop, which sees polyrhythmic UK funky-isms played out against a backdrop of broken halfstep beats.

Supaplex opens Pixelord’s account with Civil Music.
