Andrey and Stas aka Radial Gaze, one of the freshest production duos to emerge from Russia’s vibrant underground scene, are set to release their ‘Refined’ EP on April 23, 2021.

Drawing on Andrey’s background as a resident DJ at Skotny Dvor club and Stas’ background as a sound designer and both theatre and musical director, ‘Refined’ is a perfect representation of the dramatic club music the duo are known for. 
Listen the premier of the tracks \’Fluffy Corn Syrup\’ & \’Refined\’, and find the complete release details below.


Tracks description. 
The first track ‘Fluffy Corn Syrup’ begins with a grand soundscape and bizarre synthetic elements, setting the stage for the sound of the record. After the booming tribal congas are introduced, you’re smacked with a thick dirty bassline and old school style vocal sample. As the track continues, an addictive synth riff hooks you in before a suspenseful breakdown. Once the track explodes and all the layers have emerged you can tell this one is going to be a hit on the dancefloor.
Refined’ has a similarly powerful beginning, characterized by a spaced-out vocal sample, ominous cowbell, and whooshing synths. It’s quickly clear something big is going to happen and at the drop of a coin the seriously mean bassline strikes. The sonic landscape becomes even stranger as the song continues, later adding more eerie samples and snappy percussion. The track is both weird and dancefloor-oriented, making it the perfect track to lose your mind to at the club.
The third track ‘Dense Rays’ starts off slower, with trippy synths that sound like they’re from outer space. An ominous piano is the focal point but the track gets increasingly unusual in the background with an atonal flute and other unidentifiable elements. After the breakdown, a pronounced synth line gives this track a theatrical feel that leaves you wanting more.
Next up is a remix of ‘Refined’ by Theus Mago, the alter ego of established Mexican producer Mateo González. Undoubtedly the most experimental track on the EP, Theus Mago keeps many elements of the original while making the soundscape more pronounced and tripped out. Adding a new sci-fi, 80’s style synth line, this version is wonkier than ever.
The final track is a remix of ‘Fluffy Corn Syrup’ by France based Romain FX. Immediately various styles of keyboards are layered giving this version a much more melodic sound than the original. A bright track, this deep and hopeful song is reminiscent of a spring day.
Available both on vinyl and digitally, ‘Refined’ is not to be missed! The project will be released April 23, 2021 via Thisbe Recordings!
