One of Moscow’s most formidable dance music exports, Leonid Lipelis, brings his distinct yet accessible left-field sound to ‘Science and Art’. The track is inspired by the atmosphere at a DIY venue in Moscow called Nauka i Iskusstvo (which translates to Science and Art), that Leonid was due to play at around the time of its conception.
From ambient, tension-building synth progressions, to the more chaotic, melodic analogue stabs, this track is driven by a steadily evolving pulse and is as exciting as it is engrossing. A thumping, sub-heavy undercarriage makes it crafted perfectly for a fully engaged dance floor in the early hours. After falling short of being pressed a couple of times, we’re glad to see it finally surface for a good cause.
