Russian wizard-fingers Arsenii is a relatively new addition to the tight-knit sport of editorship... But he's making all the right moves to secure his place in the premier league. Excavating the well of jazz funk obscurity, he's repurposed two beautiful instrumentals that would otherwise remain criminally anonymous. "Allgeria" is a swooning Bob James style adventure that gets sweatier and sweatier as the groove develops. "Turbo", meanwhile, hits much harder thanks to melodic indulgences and a general synth boogie flavour. Just wait for the breakdown on the middle eighth when the bass and drums are given space to really shine... Stunning.
