With the track 'Icelandic' from Bluestorm, we present to you the first release from our new label Festival Lounge Limited. The label was conceived to bring to you only the best in Russian techno music, and will be periodically releasing select original tracks, with support from remixes by top producers.
Bluestorm is the ongoing duo collaboration project of Moscow-based producer Roman Ponomarenko aka sec0ndskin and vocalist Solncé Vera Ostrova, who is also known for her work with Armin van Buuren, Will Dukster, Handell, and Alex Zelenka. Friends since their teenage years in Tashkent, Uzbekistan who have since reconnected, Roman and Solncé share the kind of empathic and near-telepathic musical relationship that defines great creative collaborations. 'Icelandic' is a track that exemplifies what we can only eagerly await more of from Bluestorm: soulful, sensual vocals, strong dance beats, and assertive but subtle instrumentation. The electronics are evocative of a wide open space populated by a polyphony of ethereal pings and warbles, distorted delays, and percussive flourishes, all flittering like metallic birds around an infectious melodic hook that you will find playing in your head for days.
To date 'Icelandic' has been remixed by popular Belgian producer Pole Folder, the German-Belorussian musician LetKolben , and by American geek Stefan Weise. The single is available through all major digital music outlets on the web since December 1st, 2011.
