Russian producer Kedr Livansky has released some great dark ambient techno records so far. On her new LP Your Need we can hear her opening up to a broader range of genres. Dub, house, and even reggaeton beats get her typical work-over. Think lots of delayed vocals and distorted kicks that sound like eerie rows of Russian apartment buildings covered in low-hanging fog.

8/10 Will Staff review, 03 May 2019

Recorded in only a matter of weeks, ‘Your Need’ by Kedr Livanskiy is testament to the virtues of working fast. It’s a coherent work taking in ambient, IDM, house, and breakbeat. There were many opportunities for this record to sound boring but thankfully these were mostly avoided.

There are loads of elements to this record I like. There’s the lyric-less vocalisations that crop up such as on the hymn-like ‘Your Need’, that oh-so-heavenly sound that Orbital do so well on closer ‘Ivan Kupala (New Day’), and the manic garage of ‘Bounce 2’. Something I also love (another testament to working fast) is the short length of every single track. You would be hard pushed to find another IDM/garage/house album where there isn’t a track over three minutes fifty... I think if Livanskiy had tracks that were pushing eight minutes then this album would start to get a little tiresome, but thankfully she’s had the nous to keep things short, sweet, and fresh.

This is a remarkably succinct and complete record. I would love to hear Livanskiy start to write some heavier stuff because I think it would be righteous but, regardless, ‘Your Need’ is a fantastic album and one that should be gracing disc-jockeys record/WAV bags everywhere.
