Premiere: Fisky – Diesel


Having already contributed an Astral Plane mix under his Roller Track alias in Summer ’15, our affections for Fisky are well documented and whether the Moscow-based artist is working as Roller Truck, Fisky or 297787, his stripped back club efforts almost always hit the right spot. On May 16, Frolov joins the Hyperboloid Records roster with the Traektoria EP (12″ / digital), a six tracker dealing in various contemporary and nostalgic club mutations. At this point, it’s not always easy to distinguish where the Fisky, Roller Truck and 297787 projects all begin and end and Traektoria could conceivably fit under all three, full of rave stabs, punchy drum programming and a generally ominous atmosphere borrowed from various strains of the hardcore continuum. Intended to “[create] a personal cyber club for everyone,” Traektoria will be accompanied by a VR 360 video and is apparently the result of an extended stay away from club spaces for Frolov. We’ve got “Diesel” on premiere today, a dense number built around a brassy, foghorn-esque sound that plays the sub bass roll while febrile claps, 808 bells and ha chants drive the top end of the productions. Like his work as Roller Truck, Frolov draws from a number of trans-Atlantic club forms on “Diesel” and whether it builds up a cyber club space for everyone it would go off IRL in most clubs. Check out “Diesel” below, pre-order Traektoria here listen to previews of the full release after the jump.
