Great Russian label welcome 2016 with bandcamp release

One of The Quietus' highlights of 2015 was a wonderful few days in Novosibirsk, Siberia for a special one-off edition of Berlin's CTM Festival, about which you can read here. Full Of Nothing, a label run by excellent duo Love Cult, are starting off the year with the Bandcamp release of an excellent compilation of unusual droning and pleasing, bracing racket in various forms. Say Full Of Nothing of their compilation: "Since 2010 we've managed to knock out 50 releases ranging from über-limited cassettes with junk folk to twisted hip-hop mixtapes and techno longplays. It's been very heart-warming to follow people's reactions to our 2015 editions so we did our best to organise one-off parties and label showcases in Russia. Hopefully, we'll export those to the EU next year. We are 6 years this month and we’d like to kick-start the year with "Nothing Is Enough".

The compilation is a little holiday offering to our listeners, 45 minutes of exclusive material. You are about to explore: rugged Scandi-sound transmission from Erik Levander (new album of his coming out early 2016); primal drone straight from Bergen, Norway by Kvien & Sommer; "spiritual bass techno" from Russian mystic Moa Pillar; thumping club-ambient from cult Karelian producer Suokas; modular pulsations from Siberian tastemaker HMOT; and a troubled lullaby from Tikhie Kamni."
