Travis MacDonald’s Agara Music continues to be one of the best and most unique new labels to come along in the last year. The label seems to veer somewhere in between new school progressive house and the more electronica sound of melodic techno. The labels sixth release is out this week and it falls in to the latter category as Flying Point makes his debut on the label. Evgeniy Volkov aka Flying Point is a young producer from the Ukraine who has been turning people’s heads with his releases on Callote and ADRO over the first part of 2013. Flying Point’s debut for Agara is entitled ‘Our Story’ and it comes with two brand new original productions.
The title cut leads the EP off and it’s something that Flying Point recorded in collaboration with a good friend of his from Kiev named Post S. ‘Our Story’ is an amazing journey into the serene sounds of melodic electronica. The track has a real cinematic feel with lots of cool beat patterns and glitchy sound design. The real standout for us though is the meandering breakdown which is full of warped rhythms and ultra processed sounds which are a real pleasure to listen to.
The companion piece ‘Epilogue’ is equally brilliant with some breathtaking musicality which really excites the ears. Like ‘Our Story’ the beat patterns are really unique and just damn cool to listen to. The warped synth leads really stand out with their eerie vibes and elastic like texture. Overall these are two exceptional tracks and they really standout in the ultra competitive melodic techno market. We have a feeling you’ll be hearing a lot more from Flying Point in the near future.
