Resurfacing this year with their second VA after the 2017-released ‘Collection Of Draft‘, Lyon-based record label Third Try Records traveled to Georgia to garner some unheard house, techno and ambient delicacies that capture the spirit and soul of a much intriguing and talented new wave of artists, directly sourced from the Tbilisi area and its surroundings. The result is, to say the least, impressive.
Our pick, Levan‘s vibey ambient-house roller ‘Fabryka Kosmetik‘ traverses widescreen dreamy expanses in a seemingly weightless fashion. Geared with an equal dose of heavy-lidded sluggishness and subtle floor-focused dynamism, the track furls and unfolds like a wave softly swashes into a white sand beach, calm but forceful. Take a peek behind the veil and you’ll realise how much Georgia has to offer, deep beyond the solidly-established institution of clubbing that is Bassiani.
