Playing tracks by

John Novak.

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global idm chart, 15th in the global ambient chart, 20th in the global downtempo chart and 31st in the global electronic chart.

Laments of a Chess Automaton is the newest work of John Novak, whose turned into a Kahvi regular it seems.

A ten track album with a large array of different styles, deep basses and airy beats in Brightly lit shores to the muted and subtle Sixty Dragons. Listening carefully you could understand a few influences such as Tangerine Dream and Air but also some of the classic electronic work from the 90s.

Heck, there may even be a touch of some older Chemical Brothers in here somewhere, so listen for some pretty serious beats and tight basslines!

Tracks of choice for me are: Brightly Lit Shores, Sixty Dragons and Ganymedean Factory Visit with its cool lounge feel.
