What do you get when you add Timur Turisbekov, COOH/Balkansky's Ivan Shopov, and Ivo Christov together and let them write sincere, melodic electronica? The answer is Project Zenit, who have produced their first single for vinyl release, "Again".
Nominated for an EMA (Eurasian Music Award).
Playing on Russia's most prestigious TV station, Muz.
In rotation on many radio stations in Timur's home nation, Kazakhstan.
With a great video that includes a Jaguar getting blown up.
"Again" is a song of lost love revisited, and the ultimate sadness that will always follow with these types of visitations. With an easy access groove, innovative treated guitar, and synthesizers pumping funk and skying melody, "Again" is an amazing track worthy of its weight on vinyl.
Remixes on the platter come from Balkan techno/EDM producer Climaxim, an amazing industrial edit from the band themselves, and from elusive Corsican separatist/dub techno producer Svevo. Climaxim's take works the electronics and changes up the beat, while Svevo's re-run brings the track to 8 minutes, with a classic halftime breakdown and massive organ solo. The band rework is more spacious and dirty affair, using inventive technique to recreate the song structure in broken shards of aggression.
A great platter of electronic music on vinyl from Ohm Resistance, gathering big support on the other side of the world – a glimpse into (dare we say it), pop music, done as perfectly and infectiously as possible without being shrill. The first of several singles leading up to an album from Kazakhstan's Project Zenit.
About Project Zenit:
Project Zenit was formed in 2012 by Kazakhstan's Timur Turisbekov (formerly releasing on Ohm Resistance as Schecter) and Bulgaria's Ivan Shopov (Balkansky, COOH, Drumkid). Two long time friends divided by many countries in-between decided to unite into collaboration to explore different dimensions of accessible electronic music. In 2013 the team was filled out by adding the graphic designer and music producer Ivo ‘Kuker' Christov.
In 2014, the video for "Again" was nominated for a Eurasian Music Award (EMA). At the EMA ceremony in Almaty, Timur appeared onstage and performed. There has been an outpouring of support on Kazakh and Russian terrestrial radio for Project Zenit, in addition to having the video for Again in rotation on Russia's most prestigious TV Channel, Muz TV.
