Review: There's been plenty to cheer on the six previous releases by Aleksandr Voznichenko's MOI project, so hopes are naturally high for this seventh EP. He's in an unusually positive frame of mind on side A, wrapping a bouncy, rolling, bass-heavy deep house groove in subtle but spacey synth motifs and languid, starry melodies. There's a similar feel to the slightly more percussive flipside cut, whose combination of chunky snares, solid kicks, skipping cymbals and fluid, new age inspired melody lines consistently hits the mark. There's woozy warmth to both tracks, too, making them both picturesque and undeniably floor-friendly.
Review: Ukrainian producer Aleksandr Voznichenko is undoubtedly best known as iO, though in recent years he's released some of his most potent club cuts under the MOi alias. His latest outing under the pseudonym - his tenth in total - is = fluid and otherworldly, offering two cuts that should be of interest to all discerning tech-house DJs. Side one's "A" bobs and weaves impressively, with metallic noises, odd aural textures and intergalactic pulses wriggling around a rubbery but chunky groove. The Mulen co-founder opts for a deeper, warmer and more melodious sound on "B", where dreamier chords and more positive-sounding deep space electronics flutter away above another snappy, bass-heavy tech-house groove.
