Proxy remains one of the most exciting producers to have come out of Russia in a long time. Well remembered for the classic dancefloor destroyer Raven, he has continued to develop the dark industrial sound, which has heavy bass, techno and electro influences. Fast forward to today and he’s pretty much sticking to the same formula, with a silly amount of time spent in the studio; he continues to grind out mind melting beats that take him across the globe.
Inspired by his surroundings, Proxy grew up in a very bleak, working-class town in Russia, with his music reflecting this cold, tough and dark existence. With his music being described as anger towards the fact that cities outside of Moscow don’t get the same spending or attention from the government as the capital does. His aim is to make the point “stronger and louder for my people.” Here’s his message
Having just released the much talked about ‘10,000 & Nemezis” EP on Feed Me’s Sotto Voce, label earlier this week; he’s the first artist to release on the imprint other than it’s creator. With an equally trippy video that uses footage of Russia’s Soviet history, from what must be old propaganda archives from The Kremlin.
Read the full interview here on Pulse Radio, where they ask him about the new EP, some of his lesser known musical influences, the favourite elements of his studio and what it’s really like to play in Russia.
