Krasnodar, located around 1500km due south of Moscow is where Aleksander Tochilkin (Kott) calls home. From this city, deep in the south of the giant Russian state, Kott crafts and creates even deeper cuts of house music. This, his debut EP for Italian imprint Dabit, is made up of three original tracks and remix by Dave Scott. "Physics" is firmly rooted in the classic house ethos, chopped vocals and glorious strings build an impressive backdrop for the swinging hats and off beat snares. It's hard to listen to this track without thinking about the sun. Next up is Dave Scott's remix of 'Physics'. From the outset the remix is a much more expansive take on the original. Retaining the strings from the Kott version and bringing them right up in the mix. Scott manages to continually build the track, releasing the tension just at the right moments. The first track on the flip side entitled 'Buddha My Father' lulls you in over a long intro. Throbbing synths are juxtaposed with the sound of birds singing their dawn chorus culminating with a drop that should please techno and house heads equally. Last up on the EP, we have "Flotyl". A track which indulges Kott's more experimental tendencies and drops the heart rate of the EP a notch or two. Dubbed synth stabs roll across the track whilst glassy keys highlight the peaks and troughs, all the while the shuffling percussion and drums keep the groove locked and smooth.
