The debut single of the electropunk band from Brest (Belarus) Hysterema was released on November 22. The single “Нейролептики” is a mixture of 80s synthesizer minimalism, Roland TR-707 drum machine, hardcore vocals, samples from Soviet scientific films and straightforward lyrics.
In addition to digital devices, a Tascam 424 MKII cassette studio and BASF chrome tape were used for recording and mastering of the tracks.
The goal of the recording is to combine the stereotypical sound of the Jupiter-8 era with a punk aesthetic. Whether the task has been completed, let the listener decide for himself.
