Applauded by Pitchfork amongst others, Mujuice is a Moscow-based artist who is at the forefront of electronica in Russia. In his music, he skillfully combines the robotic glitches of modern electronic music with dense layers of natural sounds. Blurring the lines between genres, he borrows elements from acoustic jazz and pseudo-symphonic music but he also uses clicks'n'cuts, microsampling and glitch tech. (Think Shostakovich blended with power drills - he's done it!) His 2007 full-length Cool Cool Death bursts with energy, blending dark swarms of melody with vocals and pounding drum samples.


MUJUICE's newest album "Downshifting" is just released on Russian major label Soyuz.
"Downshifting" is the best Russian album, which I head in the last 10 years" 
"The first truly great Russian album of the 2010s"
A.Gorbachev,  magazine "Afisha"

"Mujuice opens a new page in history of Russian pop-music. He managed to combine two absolutely antagonistic elements - romantic-depressive Russian rock and impassive clubbing electronic music."

Artemy Troitsky
