More booty from the Software label, this time from Moscow born, Brooklyn based Slava (a.k.a Slava Balsanov). Slava's had stuff out on a bunch of labels but this is the first of his releases I've heard so excuse my ignorance. 'Soft Control' is a strange beast that tinkers with the construction of footwork rhythms, taking them back in time and re-applying them to the disciplines of techno and ambient music with awesome results. Slava's samples are the most beautiful, filtered out loops cut so tight against jumpy beat patterns that it's hard to decide between hitting the bean bag with a blunt or hitting the dance-floor and showing 'em how it's done 'Step Up' style. It's such a strange mixture of purest, almost new-age synthetics and hard-hitting 21st century beats that it's making my head spin with its genius. That's twice this week that a Software release has left me pretty much speechless. Sorry for the lack of detail, guess you'll have to take a listen for yourself. It''s seductive stuff mind so watch yourself.
