New record label from a Russian town we passed through

By Kara Van Malssen

We have fond memories of getting completely lost trying to navigate our way through the southern Russian city of Krasnodar after we crossed over from the Crimea and plodded along toward western Kazakhstan. Definitely one of our navigational FAIL moments, we probably lost 2 hours trying to figure out how to get back to the right road once we found ourselves heading toward Moskow instead of Astrakhan. The whole thing probably would have been much less stressful if we had access to some of these soothing electronic tunes from new Krasnodar label, Sub Amp.

Our favorite audio blog covering all parts of the former USSR, Far From Moscow reports on the new label, and have posted a number of excellent tracks for your listening pleasure on their site. Enjoy.

In the meantime, we are putting the finishing touches on our Kickstarter backer rewards, and starting to drop those into the mail this week (though this may take time considering the hundreds of backers we had. and we love you all). We’ll be back soon with a new podcast from Kyrgyzstan, and some fresh blog posts.

Happy listening, and drive carefully!


    Hey….just wanted to check out your progress on sending out the Kickstarter rewards. Haven’t heard anything in a while. I’m hoping you still have my correct address. Let me know what’s up. Thanks! ~Marcie B
