James Alexander Darkforce, known to close observers of our label catalogue as a collaborator of Russian hip-hop/electro experimentalist Bookwar, hails from Omsk in central Russia. His description of his music as post-industrial, post-punk synthpop is accurate – the charm of this album is in the way in which it combines hummable, even danceable pop structures with a sensibility for textures and atmospheres.

Despite mostly English (and occasionally, German) song titles, the lyrics are mostly in Russian, yet the titles offer a glimpse into the rich imagination of James Alexander Darkforce even for those listeners who do not speak Russian. In the back cover photograph there is a sign saying “Say no to noise”, which could actually be read as a tongue-in-cheek programmatic statement of the artist, who actually has a great talent for melody rather than (only) noise.
