"Musicians from the group Ivan Samshit already in 1987-88 were the very first artists of the independent scene in Ukraine, who started to produce their music using strictly synthesizers and samplers. The sound of Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, Depeche Mode, Erasure and the likes had inspired them, and then they had just begun to record songs in that highly captivating do-it-yourself manner. On the background of both extremely poor and limited technical possibilities of the late 80s, the recordings of Ivan Samshit sounded as Revelation, which built a local paradigm of perfection, sound wealth and innovation. They always "sung the body electric", and for the official Soviet establishment it was always a bit too much. The "Essential Shit" compilation introduced in Spring 2007 by QUASI POP is the very first CD release of this band. Now it spans the complete palette of the band's output from the grotesque sound equilibristic of the late 80s through the cheery and cute style of the early 90s to the orchestral megalomania and advanced audio design of the latest works."
