The abbreviation stands for “Samoye Bolshoye Prostoye Chislo” (“The Biggest Prime Number”). And the project began as collaboration between St. Petersburg-based electronic duo Yolochniye Igrushki and journalist Kirill Ivanov. The eponymous debut album, on which Ivanov read his slightly bizarre lyrics to an ambient-style accompaniment, was released in 2007 to critical acclaim, while the album’s sound producer Oleg Nesterov described the style as “new urban poetry”. The record was named “the year’s best album” by the glossy magazine Afisha and got a nomination in the Stepnoi Volk awards, run by prominent musical critic Artemy Troitsky. SBPCh’s collaborations with some other artists resulted in their sophomore record, “SBPCh Orchestra”, released in 2008. Meanwhile, singles released over the last year indicated a change in the musical direction towards dance beats.
