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.

Finds You Well portrays a certain longing for things past. Tape hiss, old samples from people talking and living their lives. I'm pulled 15 years backward in time, I hear Tycho, Boards of Canada, Legowelt and Body-San. This is a playful, yet elegant set of tunes that really makes me want to call my friends and spend the night drinking beers in a field, looking up at the stars. To really enjoy such moments.
