salva girl like me video

Slava, Salva, Groundislava, these are very different people, but it is easy to get them confused by name!

Slava (aka Slava Balasanov) is a Chicago-based, Moscow-born visual artist and producer whose name literally means “fame” and “glory” in Russian.  At age 12, Slava moved to Chicago, where he eventually co-founded Moment Sound Recordings, which continues to promote and curate visual and electronic music events.  Throughout his career, he released projects on a laundry list of labels including Mathematics Recordings, Future Times, !K7 and Coral Records Internazionale.

In February of 2012, Slava released his Soft Control EP via Mexican Summer/ Software to much acclaim.  And then returning a year later with Raw Solutions, a full length LP again released on Software on April 23rd.

Today, PitchforkTV debuted the official music video for track 2, “Girl Like Me.”  Great song, pretty messed up video!! Some kids these days are WEIRD.

Slava Raw Solutions album is out now on iTunes and Amazon.
