With a strong
focus on unique electronic sounddesign and structures, v/a - Vortex
has turned into a solid collection of next level sonic wizardry.
All of the artists involved have dedicated an extremely respectable amount

the musical term "flashcore" and operates in his own personal
aka Sedarka, who will one day be like Kazumoto Endo,
except better, as his Entity release
so charmingly demonstrates.
who's merciless track got lifted from the cancelled Phalanx project "Hyperion",
and who also brought you a mesmerizing
free release in the past, as well as on labels such as ZOD and Ad
micro tweaker deluxe, especially known for his insane livesets and ultra-detailed
Liminal Space album on Hymen.
a psytrance vs breakcore duo who rock the Moscow underground partyscene
and run the Acidsamovar label, bringing us a speedcore influenced track.
Dullsky, aka Quest.Room.Project, a sound project exploring
the strange and the bizarre by superimposing the impossible, as with his
