Slowcraft Records:

"Mike Lazarev joins Slowcraft for an austere and introspective new album combining his trademark piano gestures with expertly synthesized textures.

The philosophical core of Lazarev's creative agenda can be found between the turbulent opening tones of Don't Be Afraid and its cloud-parting resolution; a metaphysical preoccupation that runs like light and dark braid through the entire nine-track collection. While previous work celebrated the tonal qualities and compositional framework of his primary instrument Mike now looks further afield, enlisting textural and harmonic support from the rich and diverse array of analogue and digital synthesis tools detailed below. experimentalism, conjure the tonal intensity of dark ambient, even stray on occasion into an emotional uplift reminiscent of post-rock. Thunderous bass, billows of diffused distortion and precisely calibrated discord drive waves of raw emotion through pieces that smoothly pivot, often within moments, into calm glimpses of such sublime, timeless clarity as are only rarely afforded to the experienced meditator. And it's here within a place outside of time that both composer and listener may exist together, even if only for a moment.

When You Are arrives across all digital platforms and in our new CD edition comprising a glass-mastered disc on a recycled six-panel insert, sealed in a rubber-stamped envelope bearing a custom postage stamp, all enclosed within a wax paper bag. at Slowcraft with utmost care."
