Medicine 07:36


AIWASKA is the secretive alter ego of a very well-known, festival-familiar, Russian producer. Located in Los Angeles, his project has received big support from the Burning Man community and Damian Lazarus who is set to release some of his music via Crosstown Rebels. Performing his live + guitar and DJ sets (and videos) in a feathered black outfit, Stetson-style hat and slightly scary mask, he shrouds his identity in a fitting level of mystique to match his enigmatic, brooding sounds. 'Medicine' is another beautiful track to emerge from this much-talked-about project, finding its home on Exploited Ghetto. A nagging synth arpeggio rising from depths of chunky-yet-spacious, chugging beat. Hovering bass tones soon arrive to bolster this dark melody, teeing up the gentle, yearning male vocal that forms the core of the track. Somewhere a spinning coin creates a resonant metallic buzz. A sword is drawn in the distance, drenched in reverb. Shimmering splashes of wet synth and slow-rising pulses of pads, forming a loose musical conversation between four disparate parts. Less is more when it comes to this hypnotic arrangement. The breakdown takes things down to a near-ambient level of unhurriedness, creating the requisite tension and release for the drop. Many producers would do well to learn from the great sense of space in this wonderous track. The video for 'Medicine' features Russian Model Alesya Kafelnikova the daughter of former world number 1 Russian tennis player Yevgeny Kafelnikova. Its just another bizarre twist in the wonderful world of AIWASKA, where not all is as it seems...
