Comment: Radj is an artist from Canada whose - surprise, surprise - 8-notch outing is a tight mix of shambling rhythms, suggestive samples from motion pictures (many of them are in Russian), and cinematic synthesised sounds. The outing is a quite short-running one and used to be uniform from the very beginning to the end point thereby chiming like a total track eventually. Why it is so? Emotionally it is restrained, it deliberately avoids progressing into something boisterous and unleashed. One can encounter some flourishes here and there but all of that seems to be hindered or at least withdrawn anyway. It is strongly controlled in its simple and even primitive format (I mean it in a positive sense anyway). So you can perceive tension with regard to the represented elements and huge potential waiting to be realized to the ultimate extent. The outing is a subsequent release by Dusted Wax Kingdom, a netlabel from Varna, Bulgaria. The heaven is today apocalyptically eclipsed due to the remote consequences of the hurricane Ophelia and as a result it is enjoyable with this set of sound.
