#27 Ivan Latyshev

This week stepping up for the podcast we have Alae Records boss, Ivan Latyshev. Ivan is a musician, DJ, producer and label owner from Saint Petersburg, Russia. Now based in Barcelona, his is a varied and hard-to-pigeonhole sound, with a discography that stands up to the fact. Regardless of either he’s turning his hand to dancefloor-focused cuts or more ambient-inclined music, his releases always keep the listener’s focus intact throughout.

Latyshev’s latest endeavour is his new label, Alae Records. A unique project that combines a label, a recording studio and a production centre, it has been set up to ‘help professional artists find their true paths’. If this release, ‘Bypass Feelings’ is a fitting indication, it’s sure to make for an exciting ride. An EP that rolls through a gamut of emotions, it goes from melancholy to sombre to more uplifting, grandiose tracks. A record that firmly emphasises all that’s great about Latyshev’s discerning palette, it provides an intriguing look into the mindset of a producer keen to follow his own path.
