Part of the St. Petersburg underground for more than a decade now, Hoavi (Kirill Vasin) has released on labels around the world including Peak Oil, Quiet Time and Balmat. With 'Phases', he joins the Gost Zvuk roster and builds on his previous ventures into ambient and dub inspired house with a six track mini-album.

Mastered by Flaty, the general atmosphere is built through industrial sound design, moving from quick-fire broken beat and woozy downtempo into rhythmic noise and abstract reductivism. The whole thing collides to form a sort of futurist, machinic statement that relies more on rhythm and percussive synth work than the balancing of melody, seeing the artist hone in further on physical modelling synthesis and computer-generated textures.

This mission statement only adds to the inescapable sci-fi aura at work, with Hoavi providing a fresh take on the kind of zones explored by luminaries such as Best Available Technology, Vainqueur / Hallucinator and odd moments of The Flashbulb.
