Pavel Iudin is back on Poker Flat Wax with a new the killer four-track EP pressed on green and white vinyl.
Inspired by an industrial, technoid vibe reminiscent of Iudin growing up in a city surround by metallurgical industry, the title track Framework is a slinky, crafty burner, built around an irresistible groove. Iudin keeps the extras to a minimum, letting the balance of a few key elements become the track’s strength.
Echelon works around a tightly woven drum sample before opening up with some beautiful Access Virus synth effects. Dummy is an exercise in restrained deepness – the track has a submerged quality that could work on many dancefloors.
Last up is Automotive – another groove driven cut that uses a minimum of elements without ever feeling minimal: a sign of a producer fully in control of his craft.
“Automotive,” says Iudin “is in contrast with my other records. I used sounds that are not typical for myself and they led me to something new. Perhaps this is a continu- ation of my previous track Dubrawa. I was also inspired by the idea of the raw and dubby Wax Only series, using simple pat- terns and sounds.”
Framework EP is out 29 March on Poker Flat Wax
