The release of Error Broadcast's Fly Russia compilation in 2010 certainly helped Moscow's fledgling beat scene gain a larger international audience and some well-deserved praise. In particular, young Muscovite producer OL was a beneficiary of this expanded fanbase, as his Random Phrase EP was the label's very next release. As Russian-made beats continue to grow in popularity, driven in large part by the work of artists such as Pixelord and DZA, OL is still turning out new sounds, having released a mixtape earlier this week ahead of a forthcoming new 12" on Error Broadcast. This track, "IWM," won't make it on to the EP, titled Body Varial, but nonetheless features well-crafted, atmospheric beats similar to those of labelmate Shlohmo.
