We live in an age where a small label from Belarus can pull in musicians from Brooklyn to Siberia. Ezhevika Records has a massive and talented catalog to pull from, and their latest comp showcases some amazing trip-hop musicians.
Belarusian record label Ezhevika Records had a very impressive 2018, coming up with impressive release after impressive release of all sorts of electronic music and electropop, as they call it.
Their latest release is a compilation of indietronica, future beats and other hard-to-describe genres put together for a record whose profits will be given to SeaLegacy, a non-profit society for ocean conservation.

Foltin are one of the most innovative groups in the Republic of Macedonia. I’ve always wondered why those into Rock-In-Opposition music didn’t gravitate to their quirky music much sooner.

How this pairing could produce such sumptuous, smoky trip-hop not out-of-place in any New York jazz bar is beyond me. Well worth seeking out!
