Russian Linesman – The Eysenck Suite III – Sanguine #IDM #electronic

The Russia Linesman is back with The Eysenck Suite III. The previous Suite was Choleric. This one is Sanguine. I rather thought that meant a more resigned demeanour but in fact it means more optimistic in nature. The derivation of the word is from sanguin (old French) and ultimately sanguineus (Latin), I knew or rather guessed from the much loved use of exsanguination on CSI. But I didn’t get the connection to optimism. This is from the four humours where red or ruddy meant cheerful disposition.

This instalment of The Eysenck Suite lives up to its billing with a generally cheerful disposition within the confines of creaking IDM. This is offset by cheery, if slightly lamenting, strings and children at play. There are strummed guitars and in Superion, the final track, there is a joy in the future.

Blurb: ‘The Eysenck Suite III – Sanguine’ is the next instalment of his experimental aural jigsaw puzzle and is focused on the Russian Linesman’s musical interpretation of the Sanguine temperament that is characterised by cheery optimism – the type of people whom are pleasant to be around. According to the Greeks, the Sanguine type has a particularly abundant supply of lifeblood. This 3rd EP is characterised by a jubilant and wholesome sound. Forget the past, the future shouldn’t be a burden, just enjoy the now.
This new series has already seen the enigmatic artist receive support and plaudits from a disparate collection of respected DJs and Producers, including Max Cooper, Steve Miller (Afterlife), C-Jay (Bedrock), Nemone (BBC 6Music), Samy Birnbach (DJ Morpheus), and Quivver (on John Digweed’s Transitions Radio Show). The Russian Lineman has become a somewhat cult figure over the past eleven years, crossing paths with other mavericks such as James Holden, Nathan Fake, Ryan Davis, Applescal and Laurent Garnier, along the way.
