Stanislav Tolkachev is Simple As A Miracle
Semantica offer Stanislav Tolkachev his debut proper on the revered Spanish label with the Simple As A Miracle EP.
Stanislav Tolkachev has been kickin' around for a few years, but in the past two he's started to earn the recognition he deserves. A large part of the Ukrainian's discography remains digital only, with his 2009 Remine album for Spanish label Subsist the pick of the bunch. Earlier this year Tolkachev released the superb Depth Of Light EP on M_Rec - a label that is also starting to earn some much warranted attention - which granted him his first solo 12" in his so far seven year career.
Prior to this Tolkachev's bigger titles have come through split releases with Russian artist Yuka on Dasha Rush's Fullpanda Records and a four track various artist EP on Semantica released earlier this featuring other music from Obtane, Mary Velo and the unstoppable Eduardo De La Calle.
Tolkachev's "Heartbeat" also appeared on Mike Parker's Geophone imprint alongside Voices From The Lake and Shifted's contender for track of the year with his remix to Parker's "Mnajdra", while in 2012 his excellent "Building Peaks" was tacked on the end of Developer's Part 2 for Modularz - a track which English producer Ø [Phase] used to open his Resident Advisor podcast.
Now Tolkachev brings his free flowing form of electronica and heavily Detroit influenced (and hard to mix) productions to Semantica for a second time. Staying true to form, the Simple As A Miracle EP delivers four tracks of polyrhythmic and heavily arpeggiated techno with "Dog Saves Dog" and "Future" sounding like a Jeff Mills' inspired soundtrack to an insect documentary.
