He's a really interesting guy I think. Disclaimer - I know him a bit and I like him so I may be biased.cool interview. didn't realize he was the dude that put out Rex Ilusivii AND that crazy Ihor Tsymbrovsky record. doing the Lord's work, truly.

it seems like a much-mythologized time in, I guess, Balkan youth culture, especially in Belgrade and Sarajevo (and maybe other cities? idk)
a cultural flowering, golden age, before the cataclysm of separation and the wars, ethnic cleansing, etc. a lost world, as he says an Atlantis.
not unlike the pre-WWI European avant-garde art scene, innocence and cultural flowering before the fall
lotta cool records, anyway. close enough to Western European forms to be recognizable but with much regional character.
you get that in 80s hardcore punk - countries (Finland, Italy, etc) with a very distinctive sound - but not as much in the less regimented postpunk world
I'd definitely like to hear more of the Rex Ilusivii archives, guy was a damned production weirdo genius
@WashYourHands you or anyone is welcome to make a playlist, I probably ain't gonna do it
that's not a bad look - a similar academic way of conceptualizing something that's a de facto reality across the breadth of current cultural productionI wonder if some of the dreaded conceptronica is actually the current (albeit, hipster) interpretation of the 4th world concept
when it comes down to it that's the only criteria that matters, and if that's the case for you, greathis music just fucking sends me
