PUTINISTIC by OOFJ published on 2012/09/01 18:19:03 +0000 'Putinistic' was made over a year and a half ago in response to the bombastic and almost surreal quality inherent to Vladimir Putin. His strong-armed oppression is a frightening and yet in a Russian context, almost in-keeping with the historically oppressed Russian landscape. The electronica on the track is a counterpoint to the 20th century history that we are very interested in with regards to Russia. The time line from the Tzars through the Soviet Regime to the modern tyranny of the Putin government serve as the heavy orchestral themes in the track. The push of the electronic beat serve as the voices of dissent and the fervor of the young democracy of Russia. The track is a simile of the assaulting pulse of Putin's tendril like fists into the Russian consciousness. A force of will. A dominant cipher that served as one of the best muses for making the music as powerful, grandiose, complex and threatening.
