heinali - anthem (12inch vinyl lp)


ARTIST // heinali
LABEL // injazero (uk)
CAT // inja004lp


The second physical release for the newly-launched Injazero Records is the solo LP from Kyiv, Ukraine-based sound designer, Heinali, aka Oleg Shpudeiko. Crushing waves of distortion reminiscent of Ben Frost or Oneohtrix Point Never surround radiant sound-design in the mold of Jon Hopkins or Andy Stott. Pulsing, fluttering synth-worlds, like those of Emeralds or Popol Vuh, orbit through a galaxy of texture not unlike Clint Mansell's Moon score (2009). Heinali recently constructed the acclaimed soundtrack to PlayStation's 2016 videogame Bound. Much of his commercial and commissioned work for film, television, and dance (dating back to 2009) evokes the string-orientated subtlety and tenderness of Ludovico Einaudi, Max Richter or film score great Hans Zimmer. "A truly complete work, a story with a beginning, a middle and an end, and like all good stories, it leaves you with a sense of joy, the joy of knowing you have just experienced something unique and beautiful." --A Closer Listen "Achingly, longingly beautiful." --Terrorizer "Its brilliance lies in its authority to get inside your heart and suspend you in awe." --Sea of Tranquility. Comes on 180 gram, red vinyl.
