PROXY: 'Music From The Eastblock Jungles Part II' Now Available
World-renowned Russian producer PROXY has unleashed the final chapter of his MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES series, his two-part debut album. Available now on Dim Mak Records in North America and on Turbo Recordings internationally, MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART II takes fans on his next Journey of dark synths and vibes. The first half of the album, MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART I, is available now.
Today (February 13), PROXY has partnered with Noisey, Vice's new music channel, to premiere the music video for "Raw," a single from MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART I. Directed by Yoonha Park, the video perfectly depicts the grim and oppressive world in which the MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES series was created. Featuring images of self-inflected tattoos, Russian military propaganda videos and sweaty, Underground confinements, the "Raw" music video conveys borderline insanity and commands an all-out Social revolt.
