"... it's hard to pick a standout track because each of their 17 tracks are uniformly excellent" tony marcus - mixmag, 1996
The New Composers are Valera Alakhov and Igor Veritchev from St. Petersburg. 1983 they started to combine music, words and sounds by using the material of Soviet mass culture: radio, propaganda films and TV. Because this was a new way to make music in Soviet Union, Timur Novikov - who is still one of the leading figures of underground and avantgarde circles in St. Petersburg - called their project Novi Compositori, "New Composers".
In 1989 the New Composers started to set up with their friends the first Russian techno rave parties in squatted buildings and later on in the Leningrad Planetarium. Valera and Igor have produced, since they started to collaborate with each other, many musical projects in and outside Russia; for example in Liverpool, Rotterdam and Helsinki. Their music combines easy listening, ambient, techno and drum'n'bass par excellence.
