Premiere: Hear a Deep Cut from Rad Machine's New EP

'Itkul Afterglow' will drop next month on Fuselab.

The latest release to drop from Russian label Fuselab will be Itkul Afterglow, a 4-track 12" by Valery Melekhin (a.k.a. Rad Machine).

Itkul Afterglow will follow Melekhin's appearance on an Opal Tapes compilation of Russian music, titled USSR, with a set of cuts that run the gamut from deep, reverb-drenched outings to raw machine-driven funk.

The EP will drop digitally, on 12", and cassette, which will also feature four bonus tracks not on the digital and vinyl releases. The cover art for the release was sourced from an old postcard of Lake Itkul, a highly inspiring travel destination for Melekhin over the years.

Itkul Afterglow will officially drop on December 5 and can be pre-ordered here, with "High Tide" streaming in full via the player above.
