BCR007 : Oleg Poliakov – Caravan EP



Still reeling from Anonym’s excellent ‘Lov Is Easy‘ EP, we ready ourselves for the debut EP from Oleg Poliakov on Bass Culture. Also known for his releases under the ‘Skat’ moniker, Oleg’s early production career was built on creating beats for Hip-Hop MC’s and lending his studio skills to Rappers. Switching to Radio production, he went onto to work with French national stations, further enhancing his technical skills. It was at this time his began to explore electronic music as a composer. With a sound that strays from specifics, he looks to create his own compositions using a subtle combo of all electronic worlds. His early releases on labels including Karat and Sthlmaudio won him acclaim, but it is his releases for Circus Company that have really put him on the map. Today we welcome Oleg to Bass Culture with his fantastic ‘Caravan E.P.’ The title track with its Motown bass lick and sturdy kick drum expands with an instantly recognizable sax line, which is driven by the drums throughout. ‘Ulé’ opens with its twisted strings and snare work. Its throbbing bass enters the fray and we are stung by its vocal sample, warm synths and tom toms. Completing the package is ‘Besides’, Rim and share shots and backed by a pulsing bassline and warm, constant synth. A delicate alarm stab and jazz trumpet combo, with a magical sparkle then take the track to the next level. Special.
