4 stars Disen Gage continue to be, at least for me, one of the most exciting bands coming out of Russia at the moment. They are determined to push the boundaries of music, and this is very much the case again with their 2017 release, 'Hybrid'. Here, the music itself has been created in a rather unusual manner, with this album actually being the soundtrack to a self-titled documentary where scientists make music in the course of an experimental procedure, and directly in the lab. Disen Gage feel that it requires from the participants a specific hybrid state of mind, and the result is hybridization of the two rather wide-apart aesthetics of art and science. The artwork is a QR code, which when scanned takes the listener/viewer to the documentary on YouTube.

This is Art Zoyd combined with Can, RIO and Krautrock being thrown together and then taken into new directions, eclectic in the extreme. But, there is also a New Age and Space Rock feel to proceedings, with a delicacy and other worldliness which is incredibly compelling and engaging. Disen Gage continue to make music that I find drawn to, even though I don't really have the words to describe it, with a strange music of electronics, guitar and bass. I find it completely enthralling, being taken on a journey in space and time, to a destination unknown. This release is currently available on their Bandcamp page for just $3 USD, and I urge anyone who wants to discover music at the cutting edge to discover more about the strange and unusual world of Disen Gage
