Interview with Dmytro Fedorenko for Felthat Reviews

Dmytro Fedorenko has been active as Kotra and running his label Kvitnu for quite a while. He works in multimedia environment, not only as a sound artist. I asked him a few questions regarding his activity. The most important for me were these few moments. First, was to discover that in electronic music the distance… Continue reading Interview with Dmytro Fedorenko for Felthat Reviews

Neural about Radness Methods

“‘Assemblage Tremor’, the first track on Radness Method, the latest solo work from Dmytro Fedorenko, aka Kotra, is a relentless and fierce introduction and brings us back to the early days of the Ukrainian artist’s career. Ritual drum music and intense rhythmic techniques are referenced throughout this latest offering and are felt in the stomach… Continue reading Neural about Radness Methods

Kotra “Radness Methods” review from In Your Eyes Zine

Kotra arriva dalla martoriata Ucraina, vive a Berlino e propone un’elettronica molto profonda e che scardina molti steccati di genere. Il suo ultimo lavoro Radness Methods esce per Prostir ed è un concentrato di techno, dark ambient, ebm e tanto altro. Il suono di Kotra è uno spazio fisico dove in una dilatazione spazio temporale… Continue reading Kotra “Radness Methods” review from In Your Eyes Zine

Radness Methods review from Bad Alchemy

Radness Methods von KOTRA ist der noch aus der Vorkriegszeit stammen­de Vorschlag von Dmytro Fedorenko, mit rhythmischem Brainstorming Erstarrtes zu erschüttern (‘Assemblage Tremor’) und eine Rite de passage zu Altered States zu bahnen (‘Phase Transitions’). Um dem Bewusstsein über sich hinaus zu helfen, um es zwischen Amboss und Schmiedehammer zu läutern, zu stählen, zu schärfen… Continue reading Radness Methods review from Bad Alchemy

A new Kotra album is out!

Writing of Radness Methods came up from the ancient ideas of ritual drum music and rhythmic meditation techniques, where a ritual sound performance appears as a series of abstract sonic actions, rather than musical events, provoking a journey to non-ordinary states and realities, drumming a way into silence.

FAZE mag reviewed Kotra

By layering deafening sounds with beats like sledgehammers, Kotra has mixed together a powerful salad of industrial and techno with “Radness Methods”. The opener “Assemblage Tremor” is a dark, distorted beast that slowly etches itself into a certain groove. “Phase Transitions” picks up right there and it quickly becomes clear that this is the idea… Continue reading FAZE mag reviewed Kotra

A great review from A Closer Listen on Radness Methods

Radness Methods is the right album at the right time, although the confluence was unintentional. Kotra, a Ukrainian artist living in Berlin, recorded the album in 2021, and now it is being released in the middle of an invasion. Dmytro Fedorenko intended the music as an extension of ritual drumming, a tribute to “asphalt sorcerers… Continue reading A great review from A Closer Listen on Radness Methods
