4Mal’s domestic label FlipCube Records was launched as a platform for the duo’s works that didn’t fit into other labels’ catalogs, their own label was a stronghold for modern experimental sound based on House, mostly Deep, Tech and Progressive.
Started in 2008 and operated by Evgeny Svalov since 2011 when 4Mal became a solo artist, FlipCube catalog reached over 40 releases and has made the first steps outside House by adding Indie Dance and Nu Disco to the repertoire. The small circle of friendly producers was also extended by the offline colleagues of 4Mal who today runs a nation-wide FM-radioshow Russian Cybernetics and a series of events under the same brand.
For the 42nd release Evgeny Svalov teamed up with his friend and long-time studio fellow-thinker Anton G. The idea behind That Mono Track was quite simple yet not that easy to materialise — the first half of the track runs in quasi-mono mode while the second one expands into stereo to the full extent using the entire arsenal of technical knowledge obtained by 4Mal since their first appearance on the electronic music scene.
For the remix Evgeny Svalov invited Artem Dultsev (Moon Rabbit) who takes That Mono Track into the very opposite direction, from quasi-mono to Lo-Fi. Moon Rabbit is a relatively new name on the Russian scene but he already made himself prominent as a producer and live performer among Russian Lo-Fi fans. Watch out for more modern Russian electronica by 4Mal, FlipCube Records and Russian Cybernetics producers!
