The Quietus about the upcoming Kotra album

Dmytro Fedorenko is one of the most distinguished artists on the contemporary Ukrainian electronic scene. He founded the Kvitnu label and formed the band Cluster Lizard with Zavoloka. As with Kotra on Radness Methods, he draws inspiration from ritual drumming and meditation techniques, which he translates into the language of dense beat-based electronics. In this sonic noise, he creates multi-layered patterns of beats and industrial passages, which are very dark and aggressive. His compositions have the progressive form of suites, which do not end with a single motif but often develop over the length of ten minutes or so. The shamanic mood and raw, metallic sound base of martial rhythms are most attractive here. The beat allows you to immerse yourself in the intensity of the modern ritual structures.
