Mellophonia is Mikhail Khvasko, founder of the Mellophonia label, Russia’s foremost disco label.
For this release Mikhail teamed up with Damon Palermo of US avant dub pioneers Mi Ami.
The EP opens with ‘Lunar Landscape’, lush strings and warm Moog ride live disco drums, taking the listener on a journey of subtle key changes with just a dab of soundtrack grandeur.
To add new energy to the astro proceedings a remix by the legendary Black Devil Disco Club takes the listener to a brand new universe where delightful robots dance to afrobeat.
Next up the duo send the listener on an electric boogie ride. Funky analog basslines bring a hint of electro to the track while the beats keep the track tethered to its cosmic roots. On remix duties are prolific cosmonauts In Flagranti. The team of Sasha Crnobrnja and Alex Gloor are no strangers to remixing and add their own deep, crisp vibes to the original.
