Pavel Milyakov (RASSVET Records, Trilogy Tapes, TRIP, GOST ZVUK, Berceuse Heroique) Music producer from Moscow’s suburban district and one of the leading voices in the local rising underground scene. He is one of the founders of Johns’ Kingdom, a label and self-described “group of pretty unknown artists” from the Russian dancefloor avant-garde advocating anonymity (“untitled united”) and an anti-ego approach to music as fundamental principles of creativity. Milyakov makes spacious, dystopian, and wonky reflections on techno that mirror the expansive barrenness and desolation of his highrise-dominated environs. Despite keeping a relatively low profile, Buttechno still manages to attract significant positive attention, whether providing “spastic electronics and fireball ballistics” in one of the local Boiler Room event or creating soundtracks for European fashion shows. He has close ties to the area’s design and fashion scenes, and his own artwork fleshes out a singular aesthetic.
