Boora & Mr. Robberhood (the latter is one of 3 members of KOVSH), out of Russia, release their first joint project, the 12-track instrumental album Soviet Aesthetics Vol. 1. The title is derived from the idea of conveying the Soviet art form on vinyl, using only Soviet samples and synthesizers to present the new Russian-style, Golden Era 90's-influenced, instrumental hip hop. The cover features the traditional Soviet white and black color scheme and a photo taken by Volodya Kurashev, a Soviet sculptor at the exhibition for Eugene Vucetic. The back cover is a picture of the duo "cooking up heat" in the kitchen.
