Kedr / 3KA-3

A 2 track leftfield/idm single (8m 12s) — released April 18th 2011 on Geo Records
Gagarin is a solo electronic artist recently described in Mixmag as "veteran experimentalist" - he is just releasing his 5th studio album Biophilia. His previous material has been critically acclaimed by the Wire, The Word, Mixmag, record Collector etc. 2011 sees the 50th anniversary on 12th April of Yuri Gagarins first ever flight and to commemorate this we're releasing a 2 track download single. This comprises 7†style mixes of 3KA-3 â€" a glitchy, two step-referencing workout named after the code for gagarins Vostok spacecraft and KEDR ( Cedar) â€" his call sign, which features the man himself communicating with ground control and evokes that sense of exhiliration, claustrophobia and wonder that Yuri must have felt alone out there in Earth orbit.

contemplative,abstracted,programmatic- a feeling of a drama unfolding at its own pace in their dark geometries, something for repeated listens - Joe Muggs Artsdesk
