Audioteka: Just so simple (2010), Astor Bell

Espacio hoy en The JangleBox dedicado a la música electrónica que nos proporciona una vez más Astor Bell, el sello de Simon Bell especializado en música electrónica, ambiental o minimalista y que, como siempre, ofrece su catálogo en descarga gratuita. En esta ocasión nos detenemos en la última edición del sello, el dúo ruso Audioteka formado por Vladislav Antonenko y Eddi Shkiper. El dúo factura más bien un techno-minimalista-ambiental. Como no somos ni mucho menos entendidos en la materia, os dejo con los dossiers que el propio sello acompaña a su edición. Espero que os guste. (Gracias a Simon por su información!!/Thanks Simon for your information!!)
“Modern and timeless are two words that might seem contradictory, but come in handy when attempting to draw up the span that defines this duo hailing from Krasnoyarsk, Russia. A common love for both vinyl records and the very most modern audio technology got DJ:s Vlad Antonenko (aka Dj Vitamin) and Eddi Shkiper to bring their machines and geniuses together to make music. Tones that echo of futuristic space beats amalgated with heartfelt Siberian melancholy. Or maybe minimal techno channeled through concrete halls, abandoned submarine bases and sound architecht audio labs. You choose.
Although originally intended as a live performance project, hard drives soon filled up with deep and experimental audio so violently vivid it would’ve been a cardinal sin not release them.
We can only rejoice in that this honor came upon Astor Bell” (

“When gazing upon your world map, it might strike you as spectacular how the sounds of the Berlin underground can trickle all the way to Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Taking into consideration our knowledge of the modern, network- connected planet, it is of course not the same sensation. Still, one can’t avoid wondering if the massive amount of land in between hasn’t given flavor to the ones and zeros streaming through the pipelines in order to reconnect as digital audio in the other end.
When playing out Just So Simple, focusing your ears beyond the sharp synthetic beats and the dark deep bass, you can’t escape the echoes of unending Siberian pine forests, sparkling rivers, majestic ice-covered mountain ranges and abandoned Soviet era concrete cities. Audioteka plugged their laptops into the leftover equipment of a Cosmonaut space station and streamed the output through a state of the art night club speaker system. This is a recording from the other end of the neighbouring plains. Aimed straight for your heart. Open it up” (
