In-house guerrilla mixtape series Tabi Tapes returns after that head-splitting, dizzying Concrète collage inauguration from pianola, with another 90 minute bout of uncharted sonic explorations at the hands of Moscow-based digger / DJ Sasha Grishin aka Shiny Boots.  Through extensive musical excavation, S.B unloads a lifetime of discoveries, weighted heavily towards totally unknown yet vital pockets of material from the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe whilst managing to thread a cord between both traditional and experimental music with ease.  Perfectly balanced, it drifts from whacked’ out Hungarian dub, thru finger-picked primitive steel-string guitar, via Lithuanian folk, political downtempo, odd-ball vocal pieces in a range of unidentifiable mother tongues, and so much more that falls well outside the realm of mere LANGUAGE-based explanation.  Although this is not just for its own sake - this joining of dots between the traditional, modern and more abstracted is crucial and it feels like there’s been a real uncovering here on an ocean of sound that’s as relevant as any within the field.  A true masterclass!  (Limited edition of 50 / (laboriously) hand-made + RISO artwork / Mint / New / DL available after purchase on request).
