Sasha Cats returns under the ProtoU moniker with her second solo album on Cryo Chamber: “Khmaoch”. Recorded in the Kiev high rise and the Black Room Studio the album explores the eastern esoteric traditions.

Collaborating on the release is flutist Ivan Ioanov playing along the deep drone summons. As with most of the Cryo Chamber releases Simon Heath took care of the crystal clear mastering of the 7 tracks present on this release. Note the extremely beautifully released artwork for this album, it’s just outstanding!

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
