Russian producer Tim Aminov has been making waves in the metaphorical musical ocean, and the release of his single ‘OPIUM’ has proved no different. Lifted from his upcoming album by the same name, the track has been independently released, with the album slated to drop on March 28th.
Aminov has worked on a slew of past projects. His music video for single ‘Orpheus’ was nominated Best Music Video at the London Festival London Short Series, and he has been awarded Zolotaya Gorgulia, an important Russian industrial prize for The Best Electronic Project of the Year. He created the score for the film The First which is exclusively available on Okko, and set to be released on other streaming services like Netflix later this year.
‘OPIUM’ is lifted from an album that was largely inspired by Russia’s political unrest. The track is moody and gloaming, with Aminov‘s vocals set against the atmospheric soundscape. Snatches of places and time seem to be woven amongst the ambient textures, and gradual sense of revelation is reflected in every note.
On the EP, Aminov comments: “This release was written under the influence of a difficult situation in Russia. We live in a very aggressive political mood and this mainly concerns ordinary people in our country.
