about

Mustatunturi is a mysterious artist who hails from Russia, and has been producing music for a very long time - this is nearly all we know. He informed us of his being inspired by living in the Far North, snow, ice and the polar lights of the Rybachy Peninsula, from which the title of this work is derived. Sometimes, however, as many other RP releases have proven, knowing less about the artist and their intentions only serves to place the focus completely on the music. So, on BC58, what do we hear?

Deep, dimly lit soundfields that seem to recall minimal electronic works from Robert Hood, Plastikman and certain Chain Reaction wax. Driving grooves anchor a glistening, lonely city filled with silhouettes of industrial structures and streetlamps that only seem to illuminate the lazily falling slanted rain and detritus. There is a cold distance at play here, between artist and listener - a deliberate wall, beyond which sits a void that longs for human touch but never quite knows how to accomplish it.

Many elements of Giehkirnjarga are classic drum machine and synthesizer sounds from all eras of techno records, and in this way, the album feels as if it is not quite modern, but a recently unearthed archival recording from twenty years ago. A perfect passenger for night drives and oily neon sign-lit bar windows, leather seats and voyeuristic Polaroids...longing and self-imposed exile.
