Various RU Electronic Two
- Words: David Hemingway
- Label: L
RU Electronic Two collects downtempo electronica from the former USSR, including music licensed from the Force Tracks, k20, Cheburec and Freizeitglauben labels. Despite being curated on the basis of geography, RU Electronic 2 offers no hints as to a "distinct Russian" aesthetic differentiating this compilation's electronica from that of any other location. Unlike (say) the Nortec Collective's explicitly "Mexican" take on electronic music, there's little to flag tracks by the likes of Alexandroid, Klutch, EU and SCSI-9 as being specifically located within a particular culture. Rather, RU Electronic Two is simply a pretty and pleasant (rather than particularly radical) selection of sedentary electronica that is without obvious geographic anchor.
