Biography

Roman Belousov (Novel 23) is a Russian producer who has appeared on various compilations and 12-inches from Merck, Toytronic, Surgery, and Shaped Harmonics. His first full-length, Melodies of Childhood for Advanced Imagination, was released by Pitchcadet in limited number in 1999 and republished in 2000. It’s no surprise that Belousov cites Depeche Mode as his foremost musical influence; he’s always been fascinated with their knack for all things melancholic. When he heard Orbital, Aphex Twin, Bochum Welt and others in the early ’90s, he was impressed with their ability to evoke similar emotions without vocals. He made up his mind to follow in their footsteps, and clearly he’s succeeded. With a roomful of vintage Russian synthesizers at his disposal, he creates compositions featuring distorted melodies and electro beats that capture the best of the ’80s and early ’90s.
