drone2805 Voici un artiste prolifique et imaginatif. Tantôt «glitch», tantôt «drone», chacun des albums est unique parce que SiJ sait parfaitement se réinventer. Personnellement, je ne suis jamais déçu et j'ai toujours bien hâte de le redécouvrir. Plaentagose est mon album préféré. La pièce titre fait jaillir dans mon esprit un paysage de randonneur plein de vie, d'oiseaux et d'insectes, alors que leur présence n'est suggérée que par de simple notes bien proportionnées. C'est vraiment du beau travail! Favorite track: Plæntágose.

relaxedMACHINERY is excited to welcome a new artist to our label, SiJ.

SiJ is Vladislav Sikach, a Russian ambient and electronic composer who has been releasing on a number of netlabels for several years. On "Plæntágose" (pronounced "plentagous"), Vlad has created a suite of sparsely decorated vignettes - postcards of moments on a long stretch of highway. There is an air of slow time here that will pull you onward from track to track only to begin again at the end.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
