Pixelord – real name Alexey Devyanin – is at the vanguard of new electronic innovation coming out of Russia. He delivers a refined, emotive melting pot of sounds that stands alone in the ever evolving world of electronic music. Tough and touching in the same breath, Alexey Devayin is at the forefront of an ever-evolving Russian scene that many consider one of most exciting musical developments in recent years.
A generation who grew up on the internet, their world wide approach is matched to a creative sensibility that operates without boundaries.
His new album “Human.exe” is out now and is an enthralling work of electronic composition, one that sounds entirely at home in its own unique universe. The album is available from Hyperboloid : http://hyperboloid.ru/album/human-exe.
Alexey explains: “‘Human.exe’ is about a robot who wants to be a human but still he is a program, exe file. The video will be about this particular robot too. My music was always retro futuristic and nostalgic about old computers and systems, this time as well .exe is the reference to my childhood, Idm music, DOS programs and cyber romanticism.”
The title cut unfurls and unfolds at its own pace, the production trickery allied to an emotional punch that will take a while to forget. Dima Terem directs the accompanying visuals, and the results are truly mindblowing.
Pixelord sits among a current wealth of producers where sound dominates over genre, mashing elements of Futuristic Bass, Footwork, Garage and Grime together into a unique take on bass music. Over the past year Pixelord has released music for tastemaker labels such as Error Broadcast, Leisure System, Infinite Machine and Hit & Hope to critical acclaim. In 2014 Pixelord performed at the first ever Boiler Room in Russia, toured USA and China. In 2015 collaborated with Marcos Zotes to make the soundtrack for a videomapping installation in Moscow.
Brand spanking new punk band Deposit Man from Oulu, Finland has released their first single. The anger-charged track “Tyranny” leads Deposit Man’s debut EP, which is due to be released during May 2016.
Formed in November 2014 by four punk Dads in their 30s, Deposit Man plays melodic punk with lyrics that cover politics in the government, at work and at home. The band consists of four Oulu-based players: Lance Fono (New Zealand/Samoa), Elias Casanova (Spain), Matti Honkala and Janne Knuuti (Finland).
“Tyranny” was composed by Elias Casanova with lyrics written by Lance Fono. “I wrote it to piss off liberals, but I am a liberal, but I hate liberals”, says New Zealand born Samoan singer/guitarist Lance Fono.
