Music: Galya Bisengalieva – EP TWO

Recommended by my good friends at TwistedSoul, Kazakh-British violinist and all-round talented musician Galya Bisengalieva comes through with a brand new project titled EP TWO. Having worked with the likes of Radiohead, Frank Ocean, Suzanne Ciani, Steve Reich and Terry Riley, I had high expectations going into this, and well… it did not disappoint one bit!

The 4 track EP kicks off with “Zohra,” a meandering and synth-heavy piece written by Shiva Feshareki that is equally as hypnotic and mesmeric as it is eerie and unsettling. She combines her cutting-edge turntablism techniques with a gorgeous, otherworldly aura that transports you to another realm entirely. It’s violin compositions like these that just captivate me to the fullest. The almost tribal “Umay” is met with what sounds like a didgeridoo, as well as tense strings that bring an emphatic tone to the track, building its momentum throughout. “Claycorn” experiments with electronics in a way I’ve never quite heard before. It’s futuristic and intricate. The 4th and final track “Tulpar” is remixed by Actress, in a thumping, heavy techno-type composition. Overall, Galya exceeds all expectations and brings an introspective, quite unique project forward, and one which I’ll definitely revisit!
