Detailed rave tracks on Mall Grab's label.
Saint Petersburg has a rich music history, from classical composers to a golden age of raving. You can hear Maruwa's classical training, as well her rave roots, in the subtle intricacies on this EP. "Freeze," a wiggly acid track with IDM undercurrents, is as detailed and meticulously produced as you would expect from someone who grew up reading sheet music. Choral vocals build and decompose while various synth parts chug along. "31 Seconds" is all breaks, deep bass and rave rhythms that get lifted by twinkling synth arpeggios. The hardcore-tinged "Borderwalk" doesn't have much going on besides a twangy bassline, until off-kilter synth echoes, faint cymbals and a barely-there rewind catch your attention. Maruwa wants you to listen closely.
