There is a virulence to Stanislav Tolkachev’s inimitable touch. The Ukrainian is something of a virtuoso when it comes to the techno aesthetic, pushing forward the orthodoxies of minimalism and hypnotic rhythm in his singular and visionary way. His latest effort, Champion’s Breakfast, forthcoming on Raw Waxes, does a great deal to further that vision. As ever, Stanislav deftly walks the narrow line between atonality and harmony, between rhythmic ambiguity and the warped grooves that have become his trademark, and perhaps more than ever this record exemplifies his knack for balancing complex musical ideas with the stripped-back functionality that the dancefloor demands.
