New one-man project Itzli from southern Russia and well-known Vitaly Maklakov’s Obozdur share this dark ambient split release.
First part called «Waves From Sick Mind» is contributed by Itzli. It’s a dense dark ambient with voice samples described various states of mentally diseased persons.
Obozdur’s contribution is called «Blue Bird». This is a typical Obozdur work, mix of dark ambient and industrial with wavy rhythms and repeating soft noises on back layers. As usual it carries a huge spiritual imprint of author personality and is inspired by his feeling and emotions.

DNA Production presents another Obozdur’s release. It is dedicated to the memory of all Russian soldiers who fought to the death against Nazi in World War II.
In this work Vitaly used samples of Russian patriotic song «Alyosha». It’s a real story about one Russian soldier, a prototype of a memorial to thousands soldiers who freed Bulgaria from Nazi occupation.
Two anxious and hollow dark ambient canvases describe the ordeals of war fallen on Russia and next generations bitter remembrances.

Tiredness, distraction, anxiety, waiting for better times – all these things are in the first track «Twilight At 14 O’Clock».
And the second track «Weekend Weather Forecast» is alongside tiredness again, satisfaction, limpness, meditative immersion in sound ambience, positive mood, slow reactions to small changes in ambience.
Vitaly Maklakov’s Obozdur presents another work that inherits all Obozdur’s features like multidimentional sound layers, fine work with micronoises, plenty of different sound materials harmoniously combined with each other, whimsicality and non-linear composition.
But «Two Different Parts Of One Day» has its own key feature. Strong dub influence and accurate rhythm structures discover the new side of Obozdur’s balance on the edge between experimental ambient and post industrial. That surprising combination directs dark and anxious Obozdur music at the contrary vector to the positive calm side full of meditative loops and relaxing slow rhythms.

First part is waiting for an outburst.
Vibrating in tension walls of dark ambient are transpierced with microsounds of anisochronously bursting interatomic links. Noises pierce ambient walls. They instantly spread through reinforcement net, crumpling and destructing. It’s just like sudden pain pierces body and burn nerves.
And then a furious swirling comes in second part. Abrasive noise outbursts are overflowed with analogue noise blows. After a few minutes of clash both sides are taken up by hot steam of boiler house curling noise just a seconds before explosion that will ruin boiler leaving only concrete slab fragments with rusty reinforcement scraps…
This Russian projects GTI and Obozdur collaborative work results in explosive blend of dark ambient and noise with dense and rich sound.
