Brand new excursion into eastern territories curated by Zambon of The Very Polish Cut-Outs and Transatlantyk fame. Five obscure disco tracks from late Soviet era edited, reworked and remixed into dancefloor bliss by creme de la creme of Russian and Belarusian producers. Among the editors we will find Leonid Lipelis (known from collaborating with Brennan Green and his own label That's A Steal, here working under the alias Beard In Dust), Moscow-based diggers crew Shiny Boots, Grodno-based edit wunderkind Schmoltz, St. Petersburg's Krjuk and The Papers from Ekaterinburg. Tracks range from balearic pop stomp of Alla Pugacheva's "Kafe", through blue eyed Slavic soul of Tatiana Kochergina, to big band funk full of breaks and even Russian disco rap with baby scratches. Drink some vodka and taste the disco sound of the Soviet Union.
