Monasterio—the revered Moscow club—will kick off its label arm on December 1 with Mona Series Part 1, a label compilation featuring cuts from Oliver Deutschmann, Recid, Anastasia Kristensen, and Unbalance.
Mona Series Part 1 aims to "represent a dimension of the club’s style," from Oliver Deutschmann's main room focused "The Chamber," which focuses on searing synth lines and a steamrolling groove, to "BSC," Anastasia Kristensen's deep and dark modular masterclass, each track provides a glimpse into the underbelly of one of techno's premiere clubs.
Ahead of the release, Monasterio has offered up Russian resident and XLR8R download alumni Unbalance's atmospheric journey "Revival" for an exclusive premiere. Using a machine-gun-like rhythm as the basis of the track, Unbalance proceeds to add layer upon layer of sci-fi synth lines and sparse, modulated textures into the mix for a dense and hypnotic journey.
You can stream "Revival" in full below, with Mona Series Part 1 arriving on December 1.
