It's been a fine first year of business for the Sol Asylum label who have secured a stellar selection of cuts from the likes of Dana Ruh, Dilated Pupils, Julie Marghilano and more with this output complemented by some truly distinct illustrated cover art. What better way to sign off 2014 than turn to one of Russia's most respected producers in Ethereal Sound boss man Anton Zap. It's not clear what Sleduyushly stands for, or indeed what exactly is happening on the cover art, but don't be distracted by translation woes and focus on Zap's refined skills for deep and ever evolving productions that is evident from the moment "Talking" locks into groove. From here Zap rolls through terrain that's abstract ("Rubblewood"), chunky ("My Lesson") and ambient ("Her Lesson") for one of the more diverse and accomplished 12"s you'll hear this week.
