Normals Welcome is pleased to have released Vitebsk, Khotin's excellent debut 12" single. This is perfectly playable House music, beautiful and deep, with a signature touch of melancholy. All three cuts on the record hold that coveted spot in our crates of being as appropriate to play at 6 pm as they are at 6 am, as good on headphones as they are in a packed room. Tight 707 drums, floating pads, and perfectly under- stated analog basslines that are catchy as all hell.

This album is magical and transports me to a world of peace and beauty. I first heard it while driving up RT-285 into Santa Fe, NM. I could see the mountains around town blanketed by a rainstorm...the colors, the air— everything—was just indescribable, and listening to the album takes me back to that moment every time. Kevin H.
