Meteora - The Northern Path

Record: 2009-2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1712.0388
Traditional Electronic

For all times the Far North in the eyes of common men appeared as an inhospitable wilderness with an extreme climate. Due to severe weather even nowadays many people consider polar regions as the edge of the world. Only the bravest and desperate explorers – pilots and sailors, voyagers and scientists – dare to challenge merciless nature and pave the northern path risking their lives. Polar nights that last for half a year, insidious embrace of whiteout, fantastic Aurora Borealis and orange glare of sunrise above the horizon... And only a few research stations remain frail islands of life among silent icy kingdom as outposts of human curiosity and devotion. Wonderful people serve in places like this: solitude doesn't frighten them, as they feel encouragement of their friends and families behind their back and with spiritual power they expand the conquered area.

Various Artists - Music for Sputnik-1 Vol. 1

Record: 2000-2017 • Edition: 2017 • USC-WR-1710.0381
Berlin School, Ambient, Spacesynth, Indietronica, Modern Classical

Sputnik-1 is a symbol of the embodiment of a dream into reality. When all the forces are thrown at its achievement, despite the pressure of circumstances, despite the internal turmoil in the people and the country. In 60 years after this event, we can only feel the echoes of the former glory and aspirations, but even this fills us with pride for our people, the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation, no matter what side events have marred this milestone in history. This is the main focus of our collection.

Innerspace - Аквалактика (Aqualactica)

Record: 1998-2000 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1411.0232
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth

All we are mad about space, majestic and cold... But there is another one - it is closer and... deeper. We all came namely from there, about one and a half billion years ago. All we had gills at the age of seven weeks, the embryo dwells in liquid medium during nine months - instincts are inherent from birth. Maybe that's the reason why ocean depths beckon us so much, and it is so painful to try to enter this enigmatic abyss without preparation. Pressure, nitrogen bubbles, boiling in blood, tragic experience of the great number of dead explorers of this mysterious world, and at the same time indescribable feeling of flight, weightlessness and complete detachment from the bustle of our life, impetuous bodies of underwater inhabitants, wonderful "sea nation" - dolphins possessing a very high level of intelligence, infinite variety of the dwellers of the largest buildings on our Earth - the Great Barrier Reef. Aqualactica is a musical dedication to beauty and mystery of the underwater space.

Mornastra - Light Echo

Record: 2013-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1411.0231
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth, New Age

Echo is reflection of waves. Light is the most lightweight matter which fills the space. It is reflected by many objects, and these reflections form a significant part of visible world. Light echo is an envoy from areas of the Universe so far away, that a human cannot comprehend. Estimating enormous speed of light and scale of cosmic distances, we can imagine light echo as a kind of time machine giving us an opportunity to take a look at event happened millions and billions years ago. At the same time light can draw not only pictures. In itself it is a reservoir of energy, which development is able to open horizons of the future beyond any fantasy.

Exalot - Time Slice

Record: 1995-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1410.0230
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth, Space Ambient

Time has no beginning and no end, but we can take a segment even from infinity. To take a slice of time and to put it on a table of the expert, who can explain the meaning of what is happening there. The past is so murky that it often becomes an object of thorough study: if not it, then what else has a direct link with where, or better say, how we do exist. At the same time, the future is being built before our eyes and by our hands, although at times it is unpredictable - only if in the nearest perspective... Nevertheless, we would prefer far future this time. Let's imagine the vast expanses of space, amazing beauty of nebulae clouds and galaxies. Majestic huge spaceships and small yachts of all sorts of shapes. The richness of life, worldview and understanding of the Universe. Contemplating this all with a human sight, it is impossible to imagine the proportionality of human mind on the planet Earth and cosmic endlessness.

Nickolay Fedorenko - Eco

Record: 2013-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1410.0229
Spacesynth, Electroclash

We live in a time of new technologies and reach to outer space. But we sometimes forget the nature of our home. Our cradle - Earth. The humankind shall pause to think of how to preserve it or even make it a better place. Eco is a future world where man, technology, and nature coexist in harmony. A world free from ecological catastrophes and reckless use of valuable resources. A world where intelligence rules for the good of all.

Innerspace - Люди как боги (Humans as Gods)

Record: 1994-1996 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1410.0228
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth

"I have... seen things you people wouldn't believe... Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like... tears... in... rain..." - Roy Batty, "Blade Runner". Worlds, fantastic worlds, created by dreamers, inspire, wake the fantasy and make one express emotions through paintings, music and so on. And it doesn't matter that he has no music education and never learned to paint. It matters, that in the evening after work one can immerse himself into a fantastic world, where armadas of spaceships assault barriers of the non-Euclidean space, war robots deploy to order, and cutting-edge laboratories fathom secrets of the human brain... This is the way this music appears - very simple and very naive, but it is just the beginning!

Nickolay Fedorenko - Dance Planet

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1405.0207
Traditional Electronic, Trance

Look into the sky and you will see the austere motion of spherical bodies as if they perform the perfect space dance. Planets, moving along orbits, experience a lot of effects: the changing of seasons, solar storms, space radiation, however they don't reduce the tempo for a moment. Comets and asteroids attempt to break the lasting balance at times, but, even if they exert a shattering impact to the surface, they rarely can affect the rotating velocity of graceful dancers. They aim to continue the dance endlessly.

Mornastra - Birth of a Supernova

Record: 2012-2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1311.0184
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth

Like the birth of a supernova illuminates the cold expanse of space, so these bright compositions are similar to rays of light and energy. These images of the future will not leave indifferent anyone, who loves science fiction, and who is willing to indulge in nostalgia for the golden era of melodic electronic music, unprecedented progress in space exploration, when the science was considered as fascinating and honorable occupation. Immerse yourself into the world of wonderful achievements, into the world built by man, which is rapidly comprehends the mysteries of the foundation and finds harmony with the universe.

Conspiracy Foundation - Grand Rewinding Time

Record: 2009-2011 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1305.0161
Traditional Electronic, Berlin School, Lounge

You may interpret this work as a sort of observation logs of interesting phenomena and events, whether gaze into the mysterious distance or a careful examination of the near field. As it was conceived, the consolidated result is based on harmonically evolving images cross-fading with each other. Several different sketches bridged together sound very alluring, inventive, stylish, sometimes queer and never boring.

Inspired by the best etalons of genre, Mabi added to his armory some catchy tricks and launched the immense show of imagination and fantasy. Some melodies would be really common for the experienced listeners. It is a grandiose comeback of 80s popular synthesizer music!

Hidelight - Evolution of Spirit

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1211.0123
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth

The avenue filled with light, not usual, but some especially native, light of passed years, warm and bright, painting dull gray buildings in soft colors, so they also become pleasant and dear. Birds fly in the sky, and their shadows are turned into bizarre silhouettes on the hot asphalt. The melody is sweeping above the avenue, so familiar, as if we know it for life, it is slightly disturbing, but opens up vistas of the future. Things becomes so colorful for the ones who are ready to perceive versatile beauty of the world.

Exalot - Memoirs Fiola

Record: 1997-2010 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1208.0082
Traditional Electronic, Spacesynth, Berlin School

This vintage electronic album sounds like it was taken from the dusty vaults of some 80s studio. Genuine atmosphere takes you back. The small piece of lost sunny golden age of music.

Antalio - US/SU

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1205.0052
Spacesynth, Synthpop

A retrospective in the era of confrontation between two powerful empires - the USSR and the USA - in space, in the air, on land and at sea. The middle and the end of the 20th century: science and technological progress and the arms race. Different sides of melodic synthesizer music are colliding to create nostalgic and thrilling images of the past.

Antalio - Precious Pressures

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1204.0048
EBM, Spacesynth

In the third album Antalio turns from optimistic spacesynth to darker and experimental sound with some industrial touch. Using the old soviet synthesizer Formanta and American Ensoniq, Antalio tries to make some raw and depressive sound. This time the music is pretty aggressive, but it is still melodic and fascinating, as bright as all his the works.

Antalio - Neo

Record: 2011 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0026
Spacesynth

One more journey into space depths, more serious than ever, but yet very dynamic and bright. Various scenes of cosmic landscapes, events and feelings expressed in seven themes naratting about the neo-civilization of the future, its space and events, technology and inventions, spirit and desires. It's filled with enchanting sense of loyalty to the traditions of synthesizer music of 80's.
