Those wacky Russians

I subscribe to the ru_idm community even though I can't read Russian, because unlike the US, there are people in Russia still doing interesting work in left-field electronic music.

It's hit or miss whether the stuff linked there is any good, or to my liking. There's a lot of russian noisecore apparently, and I already went through that the first time around 10 years ago. But this SeaMonkey mix is really enjoyable. Down-tempo to ambient, but all very chill and melodic, and none of it by artists whose names I recognize.

And if you click thru to that site, the individual tracks are available in addition to the full mix.
