Soda Gong presents a razor sharp collection of rigorous and imaginative new music from Moscow-by-way-of-St.Petersburg-based musician and producer Flaty (Evgenii Fadeev, aka АЭМ Ритм-Каскад). Generic TARGZ places Flaty's precipitously complex drum programming and keen ear for atmosphere and space at the forefront, offering up a dynamic array of techno, ambient, generative footwork, and other tougher to pigeonhole rhythmic experiments. It is a dizzying and cohesive document in which ethereal productions, such as "Praaai" wherein a bewitching vocal pad hovers over delicate, pin-prick percussion, sit comfortably alongside tightly controlled chaos, as with the synapse-knotting "Thread" and heavy-hitting "Horn of Plenty". Over the past few years, Flaty has released a wealth of diverse and uniformly excellent music under monikers such as AEM Rhythm Cascade, Dada Ques, and Wrong Water. He is most closely associated with the influential GOST ZVUK label, but his work has also appeared on imprints such as 12th Isle, Muscut, and his own ANWO Records. Although Flaty serves as his primary alias, Generic TARGZ is only the artist's second full-length under the moniker, following 2016's New Suggestions, a high-water mark in the impeccable GOST ZVUK catalog. Flaty recently produced Kedr Livanskiy's album "Your Need (2MR 043CD/LP/LTD-LP). Mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. Artwork and design by Alex McCullough and Niall Wynne Lewis. First edition of 300; artwork with gloss laminate finish.
