Radius was established in summer 2004 by Sergei Malkin. He was born in Kemerovo in south west Siberia where he started his career as a professional film-cutter in his hometown. In the early 90ies, he began to realize various successful musical projects. Between 1991 and 2002 he released five solo albums under his Fizalis imprint. In 1995, the album „Polja tischiny“ by Nero was released, a collaboration with Mikhail Semjonov. Fractal Heads, a formation operated together with Dmitrij Kravtschuk from Novokuznezk, is Sergei Malkin’s most well known musical manifestation to date. Beside, as DJ Mutant he is spinning records in several clubs all over Russia and releasing highly popular mix-CD’s on his own dancefloor label Mediatone. He consequently and conceptually uses latest soundgenerating technologies versus old and mostly primitive free- and self-programmed software, as well as computers of Soviet fabrics for his ends. Strange micro electronica and melodies with elements of toy music. Seemingly compositorial infantilism in combination with musical helplessness and genial dilettantism stays hidden behind serious titles and highly professional production. Tracks are configured as short pop songs – musical parts that are intensely influenced by children’s play patterns. Radius’ tonework style is unmistakable, original, excellently made, experimental, powerful, funky fresh and even Siberian soulful.
