Pavel Dovgal - Cassiopeia
Cassiopeia is a constellation in the northern sky. It was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd century Greek astronomer Ptolemy and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations today. In the sky Cassiopeia sits with Andromeda on the South side. In Greek mythology it was considered to represent the vain queen Cassiopeia, who boasted about her unrivalled beauty.
This album is a mix between different sides of the concept of “Cassiopeia”. It’s about life, the universe, humans and the future. Cassiopeia includes musical approaches comparable to Prefuse 73, Robot Koch and Kryptic Minds. The record is predominantly Hip Hop, but features tracks with other artists that are not strictly part of this genre such as BekBekson, Verhovski and Fancy Mike. Pavel’s music is a trip into a fable and his medium is the music of different genres: Hip Hop, Dubstep, Glitch, Wonky and Downbeat, used to form pictures. His work is free spirited and there are hints of feelings, allusions, enigma and mystery. We won’t get into the inner workings of his music, how it finds its way into the hearts and souls of the audience, the important thing is that it serves its purpose. Tracks such as “LA” or “Andromeda” are very personal statements from Pavel, “Quant Magic” is composed using Overtone, Didgeridoo, Boomerang, Yedaki and other Australian instruments. “Sacred Chants Of Shiva” seizes the listener with a sensation of restlessness.
Pavel Dovgal’s “Cassiopeia”, the incision between intergalactic music and the human soul. The same formula that has been present for over a thousand years.
Project: Mooncircle / hhv.de
Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle is an official label from hhv.de. It was founded in 2002 by Gordon Gieseking and is specializing in the conjunction between electronic and organic music. Being interested in music from his earliest childhood on, it eventually became more than just a passion to him. The label, at first envisaged as a compilation project only, found the perfect partner with Thomas Ulrich and his mail-order hhv.de in 2004, later being joined by Jinna Morocha from Moscow. This led the way for the first instrumental and vocal solo releases by such artists as Mr Cooper, 40 Winks, CYNE, Jahbitat, John Robinson, MF Doom, Lambent, Lewis Parker, Non of Shadowhuntaz, Graciela Maria, Strand, Robot Koch, Pavel Dovgal, Ta-Ku, Mika Gao, Onra, Obba Supa, fLako, Sina., 1000 Names, DZA, Krts, Long Arm or Glen Porter. In 2009 the sub-label Project: Squared, run by Paul Cooper and Peter Schachmann, two long-standing companions and co-workers, was founded. Project: Squared releases mainly Dubstep and Techno 12” records from such artists as Asusu, Furesshu, AnD, L-OW, Tom Diccico, Shifted and others. Another sub-label, Finest Ego, was added in 2010. Run by Malte Tarnow, its aim is to consolidate the versatility of instrumental beats, glitch or wonky and anything in between or beyond. The outcome are compilations with such producers as Daisuke Tanabe, Isaac Aesili, Om Unit, Lapalux, RLP, ichiro_, Himuro Yoshiteru, Pixelord, Monky, Christoph El Truento, and various others. The work of illustrators and graphic designers such as Bioniq, Dan May, Iain McArthur, Ima One, LNY, Gordon, 44 Flavours, La Mano Fria, and The Binh create images that accompany the acoustic spaces. Project: Mooncircle with its various producers & vocalist shall be an interesting experience for anyone looking for the extraordinary.

Review
Thomas Pünktchen, 21.10.2010

Die Kaderschmiede in Russland läuft noch wie zu Zeiten des realexistierenden Sozialismus, jedenfalls was die Produzenten avancierter Beats betrifft. Das ist insofern erstaunlich, weil das ehemalige Zarenreich keineswegs auf eine in diese Richtung auch nur tendierende Musiktradition blicken kann. Doch das World Wide Web hat auch hier den Menschen neue Möglichkeiten eröffnet. So klingt die Musik von Pixelord, DZA und Co. zwar zeitgemäß, aber eben nicht von einheimischen Kolorit besetzt. Auch Pavel Dovgals Soundentwürfe sind eher an typisch untypischen HipHop-Produzenten wie Flying Lotus oder Prefuse 73 angelehnt. Dovgal unterscheidet sich dennoch von den meisten anderen russischen Beatschmieden, nicht nur, weil er den Großteil seines Lebens in der Ukraine verbracht hat. Er nähert sich HipHop eher von Seiten der elektronischen Musik, legt Wert auf gut gesetzte Kicks, abwechslungsreiche, stimmungsvolle Sounds. Er kann aber auch die Kanten schräg setzen, um wie einer dieser wilden Dubstep-Erneuerer zu klingen. Wer sein Spektrum antesten möchte, höre doch Salzburg und das darauffolgende LA. Erstaunlich, dass diese halbstündige Ideenvielfalt dennoch ein kohärentes Klangbild ergibt.
