Russian electronic producer Artem Harchenko, known worldwide as R-Tem, is a producer and Dj with...
...his own radioshow 'Maximuse' on Kiss FM, and owner of Snoochi Boochi Records. With more than a 100 releases globally, R-Tem's tracks and remixes always reach the top of the Russian and European charts, and frequently appear in the playlists of world's most famous DJs, such as Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto, Nick Warren and many others. Top European labels fought for the rights to his artist album.. but Baroque came out and top and are proud to present 'Touch'.
In Russia millions of clubbers and electronic music lovers know R-Tem as an author of two anthems for KaZantip festival. His albums 'The Album One' (2003, World Club Music), 'Voiceless' (2006, Uplifto Rec.) and 'Cloud of Sound' (2007, Pravitelstvo Zvuka are benchmarks of electronica in Russia and Ukraine.
The lead single 'Touch' became the official anthem of Kazantip 2008, one of europes largest music festivals, and gave name to whole album. It's R-Tem's second Kazantip anthem. In 2005 'Voiceless' was also the official tune of the festival. This track is a freestyle experiment, uniting techno and house in perfect proportion. Nervous and dissonant melody in A-moll gives us an example of unordinary intelligent sound.
'Met-R' - is Paul Van Dyk's summer favourite, included in his compilation 'Cream Ibiza' with the tracks from Steve Angello, Bob Sinclair, Dirty South, Robbie Rivera, Deadmau5 and others.'Dali' is a progressive stormer from R-Tem, with the remix from Sam Ball. Along side the dubby techno sounds of 'dub heroes' and 'Totoro'.. the powerfull driving tech house cuts 'feel it' and 'Last One'.
And the electro slices of 'Querty' and 'Iojik', we are truly treated to one of the most exciting house albums of 2008.. enjoy!
