Teengirl Fantasy, Maria Minerva, Nite Jewel produce tracks by little known Russian artists

Earlier this year, Moscow-based culture mag Look At Me received over 600 submissions for a contest promising ten young Russian artists a chance to get a track produced by one of ten North American indie musicians. The producers included Ad Hoc faves like Teengirl Fantasy, Maria Minerva, Nite Jewel, and Dent May, and even heavyweights like Arcade Fire's Jeremy Gara. The collaborative mix-downs, which are streaming for free on SoundCloud, include Dent May's recording of a self-described "porngroove" band from Vladivostok (KrisMirror) and Maria Minerva's production of likeminded Muscovite synthesist Rosemary Loves A Blackberry. One of our faves is this sample-based, Teengirl-assisted cut from Творожное озер (pronounced "Curd Lake"), a Siberian "chillwave" project inspired by the "Soviet acoustic pop scene."
