The Real Ukrainian Ambassadors

img  Tobias

Nexsound is known for two things. First of all, for being the number one label in the Ukraine when it comes to experimental electronic and electro-acoustic music. Their scope ranges from gentle minimalist excursions into the world of guitar harmonics and lush ambient to komplex combinations of musical algorithms and real-time improvisation. And secondly, Nexsound is the creative outlet for Andrej Kiritchenko, one of the country's few artists who has made a name for himself in the West, namely by his releases on the Ad Noiseam label. Still, there is much more to be said about Kiritchenko, who in his home country works as a TV and radio DJ and has several projects up and running. In fact, it is Andrej, who has given this niche music a significant boost over the last years and some of the finest new talents have found refuge at his records company. Two of these prodigal sons, Kotra and Zavoloka, are now joining him on a tour through Germany, which will see them hit Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Frankfurt am Main , Cologne and Stralsund. It's a great package, with Kiritchenko's refined sounds meeting the dense soundscapes and Carpathian Folk influences of Zavoloka and Kotra, whom the label itself describes as "difficult but impressive listening".
