"Tetris": The Rules of
It's a trio. Vlad Lozinsky played
independent rock with bands like
Obermaneken and Matrosskaya
Tishina and then /\ushrooms.
Pavel Khotin was a well-known
keyboards player with Zvuki Mu
and then with Alexey Pavlov in
MD&C Pavlov. Dmitry Rubezhov
never played with bands before
P: Why Tetris?
V: Modern music is made with
sampler. Doesn't it remind you of
P: When did you put through the
V: When I was little I made up
my own sampler. I was 13 or
14.1 told my brother, a bass
player, of my invention when he

said: "You are late, buddy. E-MU

I wanted to have it and made
loops and collected sounds. I knew I will have
P: Your music is a collective work?
V: W e make a track until everyone of us likes
D: W e feel what should sound at a particular
moment. Especially Pavel knows where to start.
And our goal is not to let him fly away.
P: Who is the author of your tracks?
Pavel: Vlad. 99%.
P: Planning to release your music?
D: W e are working out vinyl releases. The first single will be printed pretty
soon. I think Russian listener is more educated than a Western. So it's kinda
good to be the pioneers.
P: Good music in Russia is made by "the old guys".
V: Young people's need for simple styles, like trance and hardcore, is easy
to comprehend. They have to get rid of their energy hence their need for
something real fast.
P: What do you think of DJing?
V: Most of the D)s in the West make their own music. It's easy to play some-
one else's music. Like playing Tetris. But some use their DJ tricks, add sam-
pler and some just play their records one after another.
P: Musicians don't like to pigeon-hole their music. What about you?
V: I'd call our style "progressive eclectic". It's the way it is. W e like many
things. Our global idea is that music should be built up on the following
basic concepts: ethnic aspect, modern electronic approach, trance and sym-
Pavel: Trance is not the style here. It's a taste in music. If there is no trance in
the music it's either experimental or bad music. My preferences are closer to
"danceable jazz": acid-jazz, breakbeat, trip-hop.
D: Not styles but energy that is what important. If you feel the energetic
motion you are on the right way. This is what you call drive or groove.
