Pavel Milyakov

Pavel Milyakov aka Buttechno is one the most prominent musicians working in electronic music in Russia right now. His work has touched upon experimental techno, noise, ambient, industrial, musique concrete, electro, dub and so on, but he consciously eludes any single genre tag, because for him the poetic images behind one’s music are a lot more important than which genre tag it falls into. He owns the label PSY X, RASSVET records and closely collaborates with ГОСТ ЗВУК. He is a founding member of Johns Kingdom, a loose collective of musicians and artists which formed around the legendary Moscow venue NII, now closed. He is also a guitarist in the noise-rock/psychedelic band Midnite Cobras.
