Moscow Underground | Ep 1 of 2 | Boiler Room x Ballantine’s True Music

Our videoz about Rabitza club became a part of this one:

Boiler Room and Ballantine’s spent some time in Moscow meeting the artists, promoters and venue owners who play a key part in the creation of their underground. We hear how growing commercial interests and the negative public perception of nightclubs has led to a string of venue and event closures, but not without retaliation.

The determination to stay strong and build bigger is evident and has pushed different communities even closer together.

Djmag.com about it.

Interchain — Space Trip

Video by Valdis Bielykh & Roman Ruktansky

Real-time soundscape creation for “Space Trip” movie by Vasily Zhuravlev (1935).
Moscow-based techno-punk duo Interchain has created a new soundscape for the movie. Throughout the flick, they unravel the ambient compositions, which are born in improvisation. Occasional noises, weird reverbs, drowning sounds appear during the screening.

Утро — Сад

Ytro (Russian for morning) has a raw and slightly nostalgic sound reminiscent of 80s Soviet rock underground, and their intricate lyrics is probably one of the finest examples of poetry in the country’s new indie scene. Ytro is a side project of Motorama band members who already explored retro-sounds as Bergen Kremer, although that time with more electronic sound.

Cast: Timoteus Motskus & Galina Usova.
Director/DOP: Valdis Bielykh.
