10TRAX#51: Maksim Panfilov

Hosted by Undermad

Thanks to @panfilov - Not much is known about the person behind this weeks selection, Maksim Panfilov. Record collector, music and photography lover, this siberian artist based in Moscow presents 10 ambient tracks with electronic theme. We discovered Maksim through one of his mixes for his label Udacha, focused on experimental and ambinet music. It was one of his jazz mixes that made us ask him for a contribution. He has recorded mixtapes for various labels, including GOST ZVUK, a label releasing music by Russian and ex-soviet artists. If you look him up you will notice a deep varied knowledge of music spanning from jazz to electro, disco, house and ambient. We highly recommend his selection for Ante Meridiem Story for better context. He is also a resident at the club NII (which initials correspond to “science and arts” in russian), a space dedicated to exhibitions and shows where science and arts overlap; and in which, of course, you can hear great music (if you ever around Moscow it seems like it's worth paying a visit). To finish this brief introduction we leave as per usual with a couple words about 10TRAX #051 from this week's selector: “I've always been deep into electronic music and have wanted to put together some of my ambient favourites for some time. It was really hard to choose only ten tracks. Some of them have a deep emotional connection with me, the others are simply gems. Happy listening.” - 01.
