relaxedMACHINERY is excited to welcome a new artist to our label, SiJ. SiJ is Vladislav Sikach, a Russian ambient and electronic composer who has been releasing on a number of netlabels for several years. On “Plæntágose” (pronounced “plentagous”), Vlad has created a suite of sparsely decorated vignettes – postcards of moments on a long stretch of highway. There is an air of slow time here that will pull you onward from track to track only to begin again at the end. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. rM
