Following up from the kontroversial ‘End Of World Rave’ album, one of the members of the rave-organising, drug-pushing gang of misfits, the ‘Kroko Krew’, dropped a stellar release of collaborative tracks on new super-underground Ukranian hardvapour label Antifur.

Flash Kostivich’s ‘Hacking For Freedom’ mostly went under the radar upon release, but we are proud to have agreed a deal with Antifur boss Vladyk Predovitch in order to shine a light on this otherwise excellent album and finally bring it to the cassette medium it deserves to be on.

The artist is known for being the more melancholic and introverted member of the Kroko Krew, and this character shines through on this record, flowing cohesively from track to track in a 2001 Matrix Reloaded vibe, despite it featuring multiple collaborators. And these are all top collaborators, with artists like Telepath, HKE, Vaperror and Yarky involved, it is obvious why Antifur pushed this out as their top release in 2015 and why we were so desperate to pick it up.
