Andrey Terekhov also known as EastColors is one of Russia’s finest Drum & Bass exports. EastColors spent his early years in the Russian port city of Vladivostok plying his trade around Rock music before being introduced to Drum & Bass by his friends.
Taking inspiration from the illustrious Ed Rush & Optical duo, EastColors started playing with Drum & Bass sounds in 2006 and eventually landed a release on the Austrian Mainframe Recordings in 2010. His music brought fellow Russians Enei and Noel together for tracks like “Cracker”, “Home” and “Labyrinth” that were snapped up by labels like Critical Music and Revolution Recordings.
For the best part of 2010 to 2012, EastColors was releasing music alongside different artists until the release on Demand Records for his first solo output with tracks like ‘Things Inside’ & ‘Heavy Tone’.
Since then, the Russian producer didn’t look back and released seminal tunes like ‘Toys’, ‘Go To Nowhere’ & ‘Electroinca’ that have exhibited his flawless ability to dabble between the dark and light realms of Drum & Bass. His success prompted a move to St. Petersburg, which was followed by numerous singles and EPs together with 2 incredible albums.
However, we hadn’t seen any EastColors release since his ‘Words Don’t Matter’ EP on Demand Records in 2018; and after a long hiatus, the producer dropped a self-released album in 2020. He has now followed up on his album with a mind-numbing 5-track EP on Overview Music.
The ‘Heartbroken’ EP brings out EastColors’ dark and grimey side with opening tune ‘Shout’ taking sinister turns with every passing phrase of the tune. Title track ‘Heartbroken’ brings the classic EastColors sound back with its bass growls and dubby textures. ‘All Step Back’ follows the same murky appetite through the tune’s rolling bass crunches. ‘Bad Beats’ features a power-packed bassline that warps and gurgles beneath spacey and dubbed out overlays. EastColors has then capped off a solid EP with his oldest collaborator, Noel for the steppy number ‘Right Prophet’.
