With the first Monasterio release, the team behind the Moscow clubbing institution has aimed to recreate the atmosphere that has made the club such an important part of the Russian techno movement. Each track from the compilation strives to represent a dimension of the club’s style, starting with powerful opener The Chamber. Oliver Deutschmann, a close friend of Monasterio, references the main room of the club and takes us on an anthemic ride full of organs and sonic spectrum requisitioning buzz. The mutating and pulsating groove of Russian resident Unbalance follows, bringing forth a change in the atmosphere and the hypnotic synths and austere percussion work of young Ukrainian talent Recid take the listener to the prime hours of the party. Danish DJ/producer Anastasia Kristensen overtakes by ways of air in a high-speed modular chase, bringing the night to a close and leaving us with high hopes for our next journey through the corridors and chambers of the temple of techno.
