This EP from Oleg Poliakov is propelled by an infectious energy that marks a progression, even for a producer as accomplished as Oleg. The title-track wastes no time in kicking into action on a hook of a groove that slams like techno while it soars like house. The rhythmic elements whip up a driving frenzy of snapping hi-hats, rattling congas and off-beat snare funks, but these urgent intonations are off-set by the lilting bed of pads, subtle bass throbs, and occasional flocks of keys that come fluttering by. This canny mixture of emotions gives the impression of flying over a vast open space, the landscape underneath rushing by while illuminated by the overpowering gaze of the sun. Maintaining the rush of the A-side, on "Subterranean Rivers," Oleg sets sail on a funky, uptempo thrust of kick and hat, while the synths come into earshot in dream-like waves, loaded with mystery that will never be fully revealed.
