NEN Records is happy to present the first full-length album by Nick Larkin, a musician, DJ and sound producer from Moscow. The ‘surrender/control’ opposition, revealed in the record’s title, is a two-stroke mechanism, which, like exhalation and inhalation, sets in motion the life cycle. Systole and diastole, kick drum beat and pause, flash in the night and thickening darkness - those are the elementary particles that make up the deadly routine and fractal carnival of everyday life. Larkin draws his unique pattern by means of hypnotic A-class techno, using only analog instruments. The album, featuring experimental tracks as well as dance floor grooves, is finely complimented by two remixes – penned by Le Chocolat Noir (Croatia) and Beat Movement (Italy).

NEN Records представляет первый полноформатный альбом московского музыканта, диджея и саунд-продюсера Ника Ларкина. Оппозиция уступки и контроля, вынесенная в название записи, есть двухтактный механизм, который, подобно выдоху и вдоху, приводит в движение любой жизненный цикл. Систола и диастола, удар бочки и пауза, вспышка в ночи и снова темно – элементарные частицы, из которых складываются смертельная рутина и фрактальный карнавал повседневности. Ларкин рисует свой узор средствами гипнотического техно, записанного сугубо на аналоговых инструментах. Альбом, где нашлось место и экспериментальным трекам, и вполне танцевальным номерам, идеально дополняют два ремикса авторства Le Chocolat Noir (Хорватия) и Beat Movement (Италия).
