Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

With V.I.A Gra failing to recapture the old magic on their latest half-baked excuse for an album, the field is open for the mighty Fabrika to cement their position as Russia's favourite glossy girl-group. The new single, Ne Vinovataya Ya, sounds a bit like Glyukoza would if she wasn't always pretending to be a twelve-year-old cartoon superhero on a wonky fairground organ.

The group, named with a consummate sense of Russian glamour after the word for "factory" released an absolutely splendid debut album a few years ago called Devochki Fabrichniye that i haven't stopped listening to since. Although they're not quite as apocalyptically dark as some of my other Russian chart favourites, for bouncy, heartfelt pop they're a match for anyone.

First up, 5 Minut, one of the first songs i ever played as a DJ and a staple of my sets. This was the record that really won me over - seeing them perform it on Russian TV, all coquettish vocals and jerky robot dancing, was wonderful.

Fabrika - 5 Minut

More Zovyot (The Sea Is Calling) is, as you might expect, a much more summery song. I consider myself something of a connoisseur of terrible rapping in foreign pop records and, although the guy at the end of this one by no means sets a new benchmark, it is something of a favourite example - if only for the fact that it almost sounds like he's saying "crazy misogynist with Grupa Fabrika" and MC Crazy Misogynist would be the best name for a rapper ever.

Fabrika - More Zovyot

Both songs are from the debut album which you really should buy if you can.
