Reliably informed



Released: 01.10.21





Kedr Livanskiy’s music occupies a pretty special space between the ornate and the hedonistic. Ostensibly club music, drawing from lo-fi house, techno and jungle, the Russian musician and producer writes with a grace and melancholy comparable to the likes of Burial – club tunes that radiate the feelings of night buses and the ringing in your ears after a big night out.

Liminal Soul is a work of genuine kinetic beauty. Boy incorporates the same sonically nostalgic elements that make Ghost Box records so compelling, and all of the songs speak to a futurism just out of reach. Livanskiy’s music is shaking off the collective memory of the Soviet Union and looking for something more positive than Russia’s present, and it makes for an emotive, euphoric listen.
