Audioteka – Just So Simple (ASTOR012)

One day we turned our transmitter antennas sharp east and managed to obtain signals from Krasnoyarsk, Russia. And what sounds we recieved! The most beautiful minimal techno soundscapes, carrying underlying echoes of the Siberian wilderness and disintegrated post Sovietian dreams.

As a service for the greater good we pressed record, compressed and packaged it up and hence we now have another release for you, our beloved followers. Embrace the debut 12” from Audioteka.

When gazing upon your world map, it might strike you as spectacular how the sounds of the Berlin underground can trickle all the way to Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Taking into consideration our knowledge of the modern, network- connected planet, it is of course not the same sensation. Still, one can’t avoid wondering if the massive amount of land in between hasn’t given flavor to the ones and zeros streaming through the pipelines in order to reconnect as digital audio in the other end.

When playing out Just So Simple, focusing your ears beyond the sharp synthetic beats and the dark deep bass, you can’t escape the echoes of unending Siberian pine forests, sparkling rivers, majestic ice-covered mountain ranges and abandoned Soviet era concrete cities. Audioteka plugged their laptops into the leftover equipment of a Cosmonaut space station and streamed the output through a state of the art night club speaker system. This is a recording from the other end of the neighbouring plains. Aimed straight for your heart. Open it up.
