The Russian musician first released "Robinson Crusoe" back in 2012 on his own Singapore Sling Tapes imprint. There were only ever thirty copies created and distributed and yet the music managed to travel due to its prominence and singularity. An ambient release, the tape featured thirteen tracks and will now be made more readily available by Italian record label Mixed Up.
St. Petersburg's Vladimir Karpov has previously released music on Glasgow based imprint 12th Isle and Los Angeles's Not Not Fun. His music also featured as part of a new age compilation released by Optimo Music inspired by Jon Hassell.
"Robinson Crusoe" takes its name from the infamous novel by Daniel Defoe. The release itself is dreamy and well suited to the title.
