Sweeping Logic is the pseudonym used by hip-hop/trip-hop producer Eduard Modestow for his downbeat inspired work. He was born in Russia and migrated to Germany when he was 5. Currently he is located in in the vicinity of Wuerzburg.

Focusing on spoken-word samples and experimenting with environmental sounds and songstructures, he creates his very own version of modern psychedelic music. The music itself is based on excessive sampling and songwriting. In contrast to traditional "trip-hop" it does not feature any vocals or lyrics. Instead scraps of conversations are used in a way comparable with Wax Tailor's description: "He uses samples in his music as directors use actors".

The first step into this direction was the demo tape "Headache Laxative" (2007, unsigned) which was very well received on MySpace community. The amount of listeners on rised from 5 dudes (him and some friends) to 1,500 listeners. Encouraged and inspired by this early success, he produced his new tape "Lucid Side of the Dream" (2008), which is not only gathering some songs of the early production period, but acts as a truely conceptual EP of recreating the tripping psychedelic experience.

I was closely working with Eduard on publishing of his EP release on our label, and I must say, besides he has a definite musical talent and education, he's a very opened, intelligent, pleasure-to-deal-with person. Whatever I asked or suggested, Eduard has been replying almost instantly or at least in 24 hours; it's a rare case amongst musicians nowadays. Thus I've had a feeling we understood each other intuitively sometimes. Even if there was a doubtful question, he always had enough arguments or ideas to finish what I have suggested. I suppose this is just because Eduard knows the subject very well and has a clear vision of what he would like to achieve in it. If there is a business model in such things, our communication would be an example of how it ideally should work. Respect!

I just wanted to add that I'm very happy with our collaboration and I loved working with you guys. I didn't expect from you to put so much effort in the release - especially from a net label.
