In July, Bop (pronounced “vor” which means “theif” in Russian) has finally released his debut full length on Med School (sub label of Hospital Records), titled Clear Your Mind. But prior to that, he teased us with a 12″ featuring only two tracks, Song About My Dog, and Random Thoughts. The music that Alexander Dmitriev releases is some of the most amazing, melodic, and intelligent drum’n'bass I have heard to date. In a way, it defies classification and begs for its own genre. You’ve got the thick deep rolling bass, the glitchy clicks, and the melodic synth sweeps, that all get wrapped up into a micro-programmed solid beat. Both tracks re-appear on his full length that you must hear. I have yet to give the album a proper writeup this year. But if you’re a vinyl junkie, this one is for keeps. Also check out Universum EP out on Sonorous and his free Autumn Studio Mix.
My friend brought round aload of new D&B purchases the other day, and said I had to listen to this one. He wasn't sure it qualifies as D+B, and indeed it barely is. The tempo is close - not quite as fast as most D+B, but the sparse beats and delicate harmonies make this a million miles from most dancefloor material.

A few years ago this would have been called "IDM", and in fact my immediate reaction was that this reminded me of Aphex Twin's "Girl Boy Song", which I hadn't heard for years.
I was right too, the two songs fit exactly in key, although there is markedly more percussion in RDJ's decade-old release!
