WM063: Various Artists - Mystic Moods
Bio: Using a broken $3 mic, an $80 guitar
and an old Casio keyboard, Nambavan (Linar Bilalov) puts together
dirty disco tracks that will pizdelovka you on the dance floor. Time
and space traveler Bilalov brings you the nasty eighties punk pop
that the USSR never had, coveting and cultivating dancefloor
rhythms, analogue distortions and droll hip hop references.
At his home in Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, where few make their own music, Bilalov started out by enrolling in a music school to learn the guitar, but was expelled for not being able to remember songs. He moved on to the digital world, bought his first PC in 2000 and started composing. With a musical diet of, Blondie, Sex Pistols, Cerrone, Sonic Youth, Jimi Hendrix, Iggy Pop, The Doors, Giorgio Moroder, Donna Summer, Madonna, Supermax, and the Bee Gees to nourish him, he absorbs, mixes and mashes his influences to create an incomparable style that leaves you nostalgic for the future.
Track: The first track of the electro-acoustic album
(style like music for western).
Used instruments: Russian accordion, lip accordion, block flute, acoustic guitar, electro guitar, hand made percussions and synthesizer.
