Andrey Kurokhtin, a music producer from Ekaterinburg who goes by the alias Shine Grooves, has a subtle understanding and feeling for ambient music. In this one-hour mix he has assembled unreleased tracks, field recordings, and tape reel archives by his hometown friends, creating an atmospheric journey for listeners.
“There’s a lot I wanted to share from the local crew X343. These guys have exceptional taste and skills for producing music and are always open to new people and ideas,” he says. The crew is also responsible for the Runout imprint that recently released the latest Shine Grooves album. Kurokhtin is currently working on a solo EP under another alter ego, Quadrat.
