So let's go for the history lesson…it's been a remarkable road that KOMPAKT veterans Anton Kubikov and Maxim Miluytenko have travelled since embarking as Moscow's most endearing minimal techno/house act SCSI-9. From SALO to FORCE TRACKS, TRAPEZ and beyond, these lads have captivated DJ's and dance floors around the world with their remarkable ability to construct an uplifting, emotive mood fuelled by the pulse of the unprejudiced, techy beat. Dance music has evolved to astronomical proportions over the past years in Russia and SCSI-9 manage to keep on top of it; whether it be hosting international talent or through their overlooked label imprint PRO-TEZ, their contributions and dedication to the growth of the minimal scene there is immeasurable. And now it's time…though they've kept the vinyl purists intoxicated with a steady stream of 12” singles, it's been over 3 years since their debut album “DIGITAL RUSSIAN” (Force Tracks) they've come up with their most accomplished work to date as “THE LINE OF NINE”. Recorded in Moscow over the past half year (rumoured as being the same recording studio that Tatu use), “THE LINE OF NINE” puts forward a fantastic cluster of dimension and depth to an overpopulated world of disposable, faceless music that exists in minimal techno currently. Fans of SCSI-9's FORCE TRACKS days will be delighted to indulge through tracks as “ECLAIR DE LUNE” that whispers the early-20th Century's magic of minimal-house with a delicate twist of classic piano and sweeping synths. The vocal ballad that echo's throughout the title track, “THE LINE OF NINE” remarks HERBERT & DANI SICILLIANO's finest moments - pure coffee-house bliss. And of course for those yearning for the traditional values of classic Cologne techno, fear not as the latter part of the album (including “ON THE EDGE” - one of KOMPAKT's biggest singles of 2005) they raise the roof and bar for many of the local Cologne community.
Die Diskografie von SCSI-9 ist mittlerweile länger als eine Zugfahrt zum Ural. Anton Kubikov und Maxim Miljutenko dürfen sich wohl ungeniert Russlands Techno-Produzenten Team Nummer 1 nennen. Nach nunmehr weit über zwanzig Veröffentlichungen auf den verschiedensten Labels (darunter Force Tracks und Trapez) liegt ihr erstes Album für KOMPAKT vor. SCSI 9 sind ja bekannt für ihre ausgefuchsten Produktionen und ihr hohes Soundniveau. Auf “ LINE OF NINE” setzen sie allerdings noch einen drauf. Sie hatten das Glück das Werk im, für Techno-Verhältnisse sündhaft teuren Luxusstudio in Moskau abmischen zu können, was dem Sound der Platte nochmal richtig Schub gibt. Das Album deckt das gesamte Spektrum KOMPAKT-kompatibler, elektronischer Unterhaltungsmusik auf höchstem Niveau ab. Der DJ kommt ebenso auf seine Kosten wie der Fan der unverwechselbaren Harmonie-und Melodie-Inszenierungen SCSI 9s. Neben den 3 Stücken der letzten Maxi “ On The Edge” (KOMPAKT 129), befinden sich 9 neue Titel auf der CD die alle zusammen eine in sich geschlossene Geschichte von zeitlos schönem Techno auf russich erzählen.
