Kontext and Dissident are the production names of Russia-based audio artist and DJ Stanislav Sevostyanikhin. Residing in St.Petersburg at the Baltic sea shore, he spends most of his time slicing beats, synthesizing sounds and creating trends in modern music culture. He is influenced by different kinds of music that allow him to produce such diverse and truly innovative works. Although his forte is primarily breakbeat oriented style, Stan has never restricted his music to one particular genre, creating a self-sufficient artificial ecology of bleak soundscapes, dynamically Techy post-dubstep and complexed funky rhythm mechanics.
