Bamboo Shows 054 – X.Y.R.

X.Y.R. (for Xram Yedinennogo Razmuwlenuja) is an ambient solo project of Russian musician Vladimir Karpov. Utilizing analog synthesizers, looping devices, effects pedals, and field recordings, Karpov creates bubbling, softly rhythmic soundscapes perfect for extended inward journeys. While relaxed, gentle, and pleasant, there’s also a hint of loneliness to his work, evoking visions of being stranded on a desert island. Karpov initially participated in the experimental band 2muchachos before debuting X.Y.R. with 2012’s ‘Robinson Crusoe (Lost Soundtrack)’, released by Singapore Sling Tapes, then issuing cassettes and vinyls on Constellation Tatsu and Illuminated Paths, Quiet Time Tapes, Not Not Fun Records

Featured on our ‘Bamboo Shows Tapes 001’, released on Dec. 2020, we are now happy to share this beautiful mix from X.Y.R., filled with the warm pulsations of the Emerald quest. A new age exploration of distant and verdant realms, in the company of Misha Sultan, Ulla Straus, Soda Lite, Entten or Les Halles.
