|➲ Koett “Thaw” ★ Label: Atomnation ★ Released 05 February 2016 ★|
Recorded with a Polyvox (an old Sovjet replica of the Moog), Yahama DX-7, Blofeld Waldorf and the Roland TR-808, the album could work perfectly for a dark club setting or as a soundtrack for a late-night headphone session.
Koett is based in the sunny southern part of Russia close to the Black Sea and Georgia. Imaginary travels to the North inspired him to record his new LP. The album balances between the more instrumental acid sound and dusty house music. Lots of live instruments, analog synths and eastern sounding samples blend the album into a diverge piece.
