In last month's Speakermix, we said goodbye to 2013 with NTEIBiNT. This month, we say goodbye to AbdeCaf with the artist's final new release.
AbdeCaf is the musical project of 22-year-old Ukrainian-born and Miami-based producer Rostislav "Steve" Vaynshtok, though this is his last release as AbdeCaf.
"This is my last mix as AbdeCaf, I'm definitely done with the project," he said. "I'll be resurfacing soon with new music, both solo and with a good friend of mine. I've got an EP that's pretty much done and sounds really fucking good, but It's not AbdeCaf and I don't quite feel much like AbdeCaf anymore. AbdeCaf was very novice and I've learned so much about production and music since being AbdeCaf that it wouldn't be fair to associate the new projects with AbdeCaf. So I'll be resurfacing sometime in 2014/2015 or not at all. To everyone who's been involved with AbdeCaf so long, and thanks for all the twitter beef."
"Waking and Loveless," one of AbdeCaf's unreleased tracks featured in the mix, will be available for free via Fluorescent Records as part of their second-anniversary compilation due out this month.
