Dimitri Mazurov: Rudiments

Dimitri Mazurov: Rudiments

Really impressive dark glitchy IDM from Russia. Some of it has buzzing abstract hip-hop beats and eerie melodies, and other times it’s slurpy, liquid Arovane-ish stuff. Other times it’s more sparse and alien. It seems like he’s manipulating some acoustic drums and bells into his work, but it’s hard to tell. “Nubilum” has a slower, straighter rhythm which still sounds like its sloshing through mud, and it has a dark, astonishing, wide-open melody projecting over everything. The album includes a remix by Oval, which seems to revisit his ’90s melodic glitch sound and combine it with his newer electro-acoustic drum-based sound in a really successful way.
