Russian Ghetto Compilation would not have been recorded if Vtgnike had not released his Vanity of Nothingless two years ago. With that album he created a new subgenre in Russian underground electronic scene – juke based on Soviet pop from the ’90s. Sounds crazy but actually it had a huge social meaning for some local artists and two of them – DJ Azamat and Raumskaya – decided to create Beryoza community. Then they invited producers from all over Russia to rework pop melodies from the past and give them the ghetto-music sound.
