Alexey Volkov has steadfastly pushed his hard-edged style of modern, industrial-rooted techno without compromise since first appearing on The Hacker’s Zone label in 2009. Quickly picked up by the French EBM and techno legend Terence Fixmer for his Planete Rouge imprint, the artists are cut from similar cloth, both having found their way from the industrial and techno ideas of their early output, inspired by DAF, Downwards, and many others, to a more forceful interpretation of similar influences not fettered by the mid-2000s minimal vogue or the excesses of electroclash. Also similarly, both artists have gradually risen as popular interests returned to those they remained behind. Volkov in particular made dramatic progress in the last few years, rising to worldwide notice on Silent Servant’s Jealous God imprint after a string of well-received EPs for Fixmer’s label. His recent work is his most assured, experimental, and probing, bringing his industrial and EBM influences to the fore more than ever while probing the formal restraints of techno itself. Now a mature artist making stunning, contemporary music which is the best in his career, Alexey Volkov channels both modern and classic influences into a combination that demands notice for the foreseeable future.
SARIIM is a solo art project by co-owner of Рабица club and JOY event series. Based between Kiev and Moscow, he opens the whole spectre of the dark and violent European underground electronics for locals since 2015. Mannequin rec., Sleeparchive, Ancient Methods, Broken English Club, Philipp Strobel are just a few names from the list of the artists he invited. Similar aesthetic visions and focus on the post industrial brought SARIIM and Alexey Volkov closer. [ SKAЛPEL 23’ ] is inviting the artist for his European debut in Mózg in Warsaw, he will be playing a DJ set.
