Review by Mark Bayross
After achieving success in their native Russia with their 1998 debut album FEEL INSOMNIA, the duo of Alexander Polyakov and Sergey Pimenov started distributing their music over the Internet to overwhelming response. Their music so impressed Paul Oakenfold that he wasted no time in signing them to Perfecto.
This is the tune that caught his ear – a blend of warm trance and spacey electronics commemorating man’s first trip into space. Based around the theme to the 1979 film SIBIRIADA, and featuring samples of a cosmonaut’s voice in space, RESURECTION is a sublime piece of retro-futurism.
With a number of equally dreamy and danceable remixes, this Cold War collision of Jarre and Kraftwerk should be finding its way into clubs over here very soon.

The Soviets Have Landed – or so the headline would have said if they had got to the moon first. The same could be said for this dance track but better late than never. Using samples of cosmonaut voices, this mid tempo track tries, and for the most part succeeds, in taking you into space. The Radio Mix is too brief but the Space Club Mix gives a fair representation of how the track should sound.
