Ukrainian sound artist Dmytro Nikolaienko is a man of many hats. Music experimenter, eclectic DJ and meticulous vinyl collector he is also a mastermind behind the private music label Muscut.
Being obsessed with digging, researching and listening to the archives of early electronic, library, exotica, science fiction and soviet documentary soundtracks Dmytro released his debut album Loops & Cuts Soup in 2010 on Nexsound. Later, keeping and reinterpreting the aesthetics, he recorded The Sounds of Pseudoscience co-published by GRAPHICAL/Muscut – music is intended to sound like a library soundtrack for a scientific documentary.
Nikolaenko's label is widely collaborating with young avant-guard Eastern European musicians, spreading around the world precious limited editions of beautiful noisy electronica, new cosmic-psychedelia and spaced out krautrock born by the Black Sea. For Thisispaper Dmytro recorded an impeccable blend of his influences, favorites and own creations. Enjoy!
