The Hardkiss. Perfection Is a Lie. /premium, eco-pack/.
If their debut album is a success (and "Stones and Honey" was just that), musicians often face the "challenge of the second album." However, it seems that there was no such challenge here: a year in advance, the group started regularly revealing the new songs – and the work went on continuously with virtually no downtime. The new album consists almost entirely of material made public over the last two years. Sure, the novelty effect is somewhat blurred as a result, but there is the effect of recognition – which is no less significant. Perhaps this is why the second album was from the very start released as a premium edition – in addition to the music as such, this is also a high-quality souvenir for those who are not accidental audience. The more so that no major stylistic changes have occurred so far, the team keeps working in the preselected direction (and thus tries to include the Ukrainian language – not only in "Antarctica", by the way). Well, maybe the sound has become somewhat smoother, restrained. But no less powerful. Even in the ballads – this inner power cannot be hidden, it can be perceived almost physically. Perfection is a lie, of course – but nobody forbids strive and work for it. The Hardkiss is obviously one of those who aspire and work hard.

The premium release contains stickers and a 16-page booklet with photos and lyrics of all the songs.

Alloise. Bygone. /digi-pack/.


This album has become the first solo work by Alloise after she left Gorchitza live project. As a result, it turns out adequately light and gentle, vigorous without tension, dense – and, so to say, cultured. Advanced lyrical music equally appropriate in a club, and on the scene of a large open-air.
Domestic price: 127.71UAH, International price: $18.92USD

ONUKA. Onuka. /digi-pack/.


In music – as elsewhere – there are revolutionary and evolutionary steps. But in fact the line is not on the "r", but – on the implementation quality. The project "Onuka" in general, and the album "Onuka" in particular – are exactly about the implementation quality...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Monatyk. S.S.D. /digi-pack/.

Domestic price: 127.71UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Kazaky. The Hills Chronicles. /digi-pack/.


"Kazaky" have preferred the English language and not the pop but rather the club style. Perhaps, their successful collaboration with Madonna played a role in this (shooting in the clip for the song "Girl Gone Wild") – anyway, "the guys on high heels" are clearly aimed at the "fashionable" audience...
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Kazaky. I Like It. Part II. /digi-pack/.


In fact, "Kazaky" became famous as a dance project – they even inspired a whole wave of imitations and copies of their style and the scenic image. But in this case we are talking about a music album – no video bonuses, just music. The publisher identifies it as IDM – we think, rightly so.
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Kazaky. I Like It. Part I. /digi-pack/.


..Right, this is dance music – house, synthpop, electronica – soft enough to not stun, but quite cheerful to still be called dance and to feel good, say, in the atmosphere of clubbing.
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

the Maneken. Portrait. /digi-pack/.


The third album by The Maneken is a cocktail of a wide variety of styles of the contemporary pop music. Among masterminds of the new songs, you'll discover heroes of the dance music of the 90's, and such mega-stars of the world rock scene as Lenny Kravitz and Coldplay, and the ultra-trendy The Metronomy and Miike Snow.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Gorchitza live project. It's You.


Gorchitza live project very quickly became popular among stylish electronics fans – the ability to bring into dance music elements of rock, funk, etc, and at that to stay in the very light, transparent flow.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Assia Akhat. I like it... /digi-pack/


This music is more sharp-edged than, say, new-age, it contains more rhythmic patterns. But, at the same time, it is softer and slower than techno, it is put on a transparent, weightless basis. Well, and sounding of the violin adds, sure, pleasant tints.
Domestic price: 80.46UAH, International price: $11.92USD

the Maneken. First Look. /digi-pack/


It is not a secret that Maneken is Evgen Filatov, across whose remixes in the quality of DJ Major you quite often come in our store in albums of lots of popular performers. Well, and now it's time for an acquaintance with the author's music by Evgen – and it truly deserves favorable attention and proves that with practically each track of the disc.

A la Ru. to be.


Actually, disco could sound like this if it were given to a DJ who has already been sweating for two or three hours at the rack but has not yet lost the ability and inclination to experiment. That is why quite organically Arabic and African percussions and Jamaican rhythms, as well as "black" reciting and the "submarine" atmosphere are intertwined into the general canvas – for this is lounge, and diversified one.
Domestic price: 67.16UAH, International price: $9.95USD

Gorchitza live project. Highlights. /digi-pack/


...first, it is a frankly high-quality product – and, although now in Ukraine there is already quite a bit of high-quality electronic music, there are still more clubs, therefore the demand is only growing. Well, and secondly – however surprising, there is still not that much of club music with live vocal until now, if that is not outright waste.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Alexey Gorchitza. Neytrino. /digi-pack/


Alexey Gorchitza creates tracks, which, in spite of their dance-orientedness, require from the audience something more than just readiness to shake soft parts of their body. Presumably, it will not be a mistake to name this – intelligent dance music, which in very nice proportions combines frisky rhythms and light, flexible melodies.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Airport. Come back.


"Vintage" fashion has not gone round electronic pastures, this has long been clear. Well, and if one takes lounge – as it is in this style that the debut album by the group "Airport" is recorded – here vintage even looks absolutely natural. And, possibly, it is exactly due to this that music of the album acquires some additional soft depth, expressivenesses.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

the Maneken. Sale%. /premium, eco-pack/.


Given the amount of work that Filatov is doing for a number of other performers, it is even surprising that he has enough energy and inspiration for his own project. However – he has enough. Enough energy, and imagination, and taste. Always in motion, in the process of development, always better than before – or, at least, different. The new album is an excellent illustration of this vector.
Domestic price: 127.71UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Alloise. Episodes. /digi-pack/.


Sure, "Episodes" is pop music, but it is also sure to be intelligent pop-music, multi-layered, and interesting. That lives somewhere on the edge – and thus it is capable of transforming its audience. If you wish, dark pop. The promise of taking through the darkness and bringing into something new – it is there.
Domestic price: 201.96UAH, International price: $29.92USD

Green Grey. WTF?! Dubrock. /digi-pack/.


When a couple of years ago Green Grey released their new album after a long silence – it was like a small miracle, the hidden core of which was the question: what's next? The answer is – here. The bile of experience, but, surprisingly, without the bitterness habitual in such cases. The answer is – movement.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Tonya Matvienko. ANTONINA project. /digi-pack/.


The basis for this experiment was recordings of singing by Tonya Matvienko's granny – Antonina – made 40 years ago. Due to digitalization of the records – Tonya is actually singing as a duet with her grandmother... However, this is not the only amusing thing about the project: the music component appears quite far from simple dance and variety rails.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Jamala. Podykh. /digi-pack/. (Breath)


..It is amazing – how this voice is revealed in the thirteen steps of the quiet power. "Breath" is a soft and strong, weightless and confident, fragrant and unobtrusive album. Cool.
Domestic price: 127.71UAH, International price: $18.92USD

Ivan Dorn. Randorn. /premium, digi-pack/.


..it is difficult to explain magic – and there is some of it, and one does not need to be an apologist of relevance to feel it. Ivan Dorn and his friends produce true pop music – lightweight, smart, eclectic, and specific. Young. With genuine charm. Cool, nothing to say...
Domestic price: 127.71UAH, International price: $18.92USD

The Hardkiss. Stones and Honey. /premium, digi-pack/.


..it is clear this was a considerable piece of work – but it is the "work" that you actually don't hear. One can hear – clear energy, passion, and the ability to present simple lines in a truly delicious way. However, not all the arrangements are that straightforward and, given the "lightness" of the genre, this approach especially pleases.
Domestic price: 141.21UAH, International price: $20.92USD

Alex Nademski, ILLaria. Podykh. /digi-pack/. (Breath)


It is Alex Nademski who is the author of the project – and, in particular, of all the lyrics and the music (although he says he only recorded what came to him). ILLaria is a "guest star," the voice. Still, when one listens, it's hard to say whose role is the leading one – the both worked at their full capacity, that's sure.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Green Grey. Glaz leoparda. /digi-pack/. (The Leopard's Eye)


Green Grey decided not to abandon the combination of electronic music with rock aesthetics – though, now there is somehow more of the latter, so one can hardly attribute this music to the light one. The elements of dubstep and hardcore are far not the only ones in this puzzle...
Domestic price: 154.71UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Skryabin. 25. /digi-pack/.


The album with this name is perceived as a certain summary – but actually it is not. It is, rather, a sort of a response to the present domestic and international challenges – and hope for continuation. Actually, now – the direct quote:...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Pur:Pur. Nevertheless. /digi-pack/.


You listen to it – and the feeling is as if right in front of your eyes the day turns longer, and the bitter and fresh, amber and transparent finds its way through the shy snow. After a long night.. The entire album dances at the crossroads of coolness and sunlight, goodbye and forgiveness..
Domestic price: 147.96UAH, International price: $21.92USD

the Maneken. Live at Arena Concert Plaza. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/.


Actually, in Europe, America, even Japan the Maneken is, probably, known even better than at home. But, fortunately, the situation is gradually leveling. Quality is valued everywhere, it is almost impossible to imitate it – at least, when it comes to music and the attentive listener. And this musician offers a high-quality benchmark...
Domestic price: 154.71UAH, International price: $22.92USD

Dazzle Dreams. Diva. /digi-pack/.


..this is a step towards club music that is absolutely able to live outside of clubs – an attempt to hint at something more meaningful than just mysterious entourage. An attempt is successful – there is the style, there is the taste. Finally, the new album to some extent may be considered as a return to aesthetics of the first album...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

the Maneken. Soulmate Sublime. /digi-pack/.


The Maneken is a unique artist who works in one of the most trendy areas of the contemporary music – the electronic rock. Using music styles as "clothes" for decoration of his music ideas, he has created several unique "collections", which have its fans not only in CIS countries, but also in Europe and the USA.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Skryabin. Technofight 1999. (re-edition). /digi-pack/.


...the original album "Technofight" – which was recorded as long ago as in 1993 and the duration of which made up over 90(!) minutes – was never released, and the master disc even got lost. Therefore, when in 1999 the re-edition question arose, the old songs were recorded anew...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Skryabin. Mova ryb. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Fish Language)


...here, it seems, the objective was not so much presentation of the new material as rather a sort of restoration of justice. At all events, pay attention: this "Fish Language" (1997) mainly consists of the songs that in due time were included into first albums by Skryabin. The ones that have never been officially released.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Skryabin. Kazky. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Fairy-Tales)


...just look at the list of songs – the album appeared truly a hit one, the majority of these songs are still alive. Actually, lots of people considered exactly this album a quintessence of the "classic" Skryabin – both due to the music nature, and the semantic content of the lyrics.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Skryabin. Ptakhy. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Birds)


...the first officially released album by Skryabin. The album, due to which Skryabin for the first time loudly announced themselves all over Ukraine...
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Dazzle Dreams. (Go! Go! Go!) Disco killers.


...the second album by Dazzle Dreams is a bright experiment in the domain of dance music. Because, honestly speaking, this dance music can be considered rather highbrow one – at all events, the desire to move often yields to the desire to just listen attentively. However, it surprisingly does not reduce the general drive charge of the album – simply shifts it to some other, not so habitual plane.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Luk. Mamyna junost‘. /digi-pack/. (Mother's Youth)


...this must be the most accomplished album by the group. Not a single superfluous sound, clear and precise lines at presence of abundant disseminations of various styles – and at that they have succeeded in preserving the recognizable manner – the real sun splashes cocktail, light and tart. And after that, there should be something absolutely different...
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Stelsi. Tovarystvo z bezmezhnoju bezvidpovidal‘nistju. (Unlimited unliability Company)


We could say – Stelsi has succeeded, not losing its dance lightness, in creating a lyric, honest, rich in content album on a frisky crossing of very different styles. An album about life. Life is different – but, in any case, completely ours.
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Andrey Kiritchenko, Saralunden. There was no end. (EP).


Just an ideal balance between affability to the listener and self-absorbed contemplation. Conditionally, a sort of semi-acoustic, minimalist trip-hop. But far not any trip-hop would afford so much fresh, transparent air in sounding as here.
Domestic price: 69.39UAH, International price: $10.28USD

Ivan Samshit. Essential Shit. /digi-pack/


Electronic romances, dances full of sense, transcendental lyrics of clearances between worlds, enchanted and warm immersion in evening snow... Ivan Samshit – strange knights of the transparent autumn of urban stones. Sometimes it seems that the very enigma of the night before the dawn speaks to us through the voice of Petro Dain...
Domestic price: 93.96UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Nikita. ChamelEon.


She as though plays, but so sincerely as only children can – she does not pretend but really lives in it. And that is why – you trust it. Such discs are as if clothes of a Transparent Gipsy. Now beautiful – and then just fanciful. Made of a thousand shreds, each of them having its own story...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Luk. Sex.


In this music, there is something of photosynthesis – it also converts sun energy into force and joy of growth and oxygen for friends and other neighbors. With it, everything happens simply and easily – the morning, walk, work and avoiding work, kiss and the first pot of tea, night on the balcony and snow...
Domestic price: 107.46UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Luk. Tourist Zone.


Eccentricities, sure, differ. This one is entirely positive. Though, sometimes there is a temporary confidence that "Luk" creates music that stays somewhat aloof from our reality. But it does not prevent it from smiling – and our reality starts smiling back...
Domestic price: 120.96UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Luk. Lemon.


“Luk” inserts itself into te space organically. This album music has got a heart. I don’t know how but I know it...
Domestic price: 80.46UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Dazzle Dreams. Dazzle Dreams.


The project, actually, appeared as far back as a few years ago – but it is lately that the concept has completed its final transformations, reincarnations, and now it is already somewhat new music. Not only in relation to itself, but also in relation to modern Ukrainian music in general – it seems that Dazzle Dreams are currently the only ones in Ukraine who play synthi-pop but with expressive, bright elements of ethno-lounge.
Domestic price: 100.71UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Skryabin. KoZZZak Disco.


Try keep your place at least half a minute :-)
