Astronaft – musician, producer from Saint-Petersburg, Russia, who has already released several studio albums (“RedShift”, “Our Planet” & “OutGo”) as well as various unsorted tracks. This time, Pavel shows his hand and presents two side-projects: “ANSA” – a collaboration with Sergey Volodenko, guitarist whose guitar playing you might have heard on Astronaft’s previous releases. The second project is melodious and simple, titled “the name is” – the musician’s alter-ego – his sensation of space, sound and universe.
The mix is worth setting on loop, since with every run-through it is going to bring something new, aesthetically crafted and inspiring to your ears. Seemingly, everything is laconic, however such simplicity is the essence of Pavel’s creative work – he casts away everything unnecessary, widening the horizons of lead-parties and accentuating the main aspect of his music – the deepness and smoothness of his sound. It’s worth mentioning that this unique, “live” version of Astronaft’s new album “Open Heart” was recorded in Pavel’s studio over one night and in one gear. All the tracks included in this selection are exclusive and have never been publicized yet. Listen and enjoy!
