After much delay (and anticipation here at Juno) the excellent Millions of Moment label finally unveils its UK leaning offshoot - cunningly titled Millions Of Moments UK - with the first of two twelves of music from Eastern Europe that are clearly influenced by the post Burial swing. Estonian Bisweed shares the billing with Ukrainian Lostlojic, and it's the latter's "Emptiness" which kicks off proceedings via a remix from the Russian artist Rush'd - there's an undeniable quality to the way the clipped rhythms float into silence and back. Bisweed's "Falling" is a worthy A Side companion, as rigid bass hits roll out with aplomb to a backdrop of ethereal keys and chimed atmospherics, and it's the subtle twists in direction that really impress upon repeat listen. The flip sees Lostlojic and Bisweed contribute two collaborations that sit perfectly alongside the sound of UK talent such as Koreless - with "The Overworld" showing a particular skill for deviating between shimmering melodic light and richly crafted darkness, whilst the dramatised orchestrations of title track "Will Be" are wrapped around a percussive flex reminiscent of Untold.
