MondayOff recently announced that label boss Mary Yuzovskaya is releasing a debut solo EP, described as an immersive four-track techno release featuring remixes from the likes of Smeantica boss Blazej Malinowski and Parabel’s Patrick Siech. Since 2017, the Russian artist has constantly been growing the quality of MondayOff’s output, as it is always incredibly immaculate much like her notorious vinyl-only sets in New York, Berlin and Moscow. For the eighth release on the label, which has previously catalogued records from the likes of Soramimi, Cory James and Michal Wolski, Mary steps up to the plate supported by a pair of excellent remixes.
To kick it all off, Sleeping B is a deep hypnotic workout that contains blooming synths and basslines moving in tandem with rolling drum patterns. Upping the pace, Blazej Malinowski expertly uses the key elements of the original and adds a broad brush of subtle hyperactivity to proceedings. On the flip, Working B sees Mary delivering another heads down affair, as the slowly mutating synths and drums find their own space with a clever use of intricate echoes. To round it up, Patrick Siech provides an energetic take full of constantly evolving textures that create a mesmerising and rather exceptional atmosphere to round off a fabulous EP.
