Stoned Boys

Moscow-based electronic duet Stoned Boys are Jenya Gorbunov (also known from his band NRKTK) and DJ Lee, a promoter of new R’n’B and bass music on Moscow dancefloors. The project is a little over a year, during which the guys produced two mini-albums, played on one stage with Pictureplane, shot a video for their track Dead Friends, made remixes for On-The-Go, MAKE and Burzum, and also created an event at bar Strelka, where they proved that post-punk and rave-psychodelia can live side by side in harmony with new R’n’B and bass music.

Lapti

From jungle rave tracks with no bass or drums to ghosts of 80s sci-fi soundtracks, Lapti has a way of making the old sound new. His unique choice of lo-fi samples in combination with surgical synthetic elements results in a strange feeling of nostalgia for the future. A credit to the Moscow beat scene for many years, Lapti has built his own world to escape to during the winter months. Hop in the DeLorean for some ice-cold-electro-retro-future-funk.

Moa Pillar

Moscow-based electronic artist Feydor Pereverzev, who works under the name of Moa Pillar, skilfully combines a powerful bass sound and futuristic beats with ethnic motives. Making his debut with the track «Water Lilly» on the Fly Russia collection last year, today Moa Pillar has recognition from fellow electronic artists and made appearances on tracks of other talanted Russian beatmakers on MTV Iggy. Feydor recently published an EP on the G5 Music label and is currently working on his new album.
