Mamanet. Ki-Mono.
It is hard to believe that this project is only a few years old. It is hard to believe that it roots from Kramatorsk – in fact, a very small town in the eastern part of Ukraine. And – it still has not moved, say, closer to Kyiv or London. Thus – it feels perfectly well on small and large scenes of not only Ukraine, but also of neighboring countries, where they readily invite the group. Festivals of electronic music, jazz, rock – everywhere this group feels comfortable, and now it is even testing its ability to create music for films. To keep it short, based on its own example Mamanet proves once again: truly interesting music is created not solely with money, but with the talent and professionalism. So simple.. By the way, in 2008, Mamanet performed as a warm-up for the already legendary Red Snapper – and this is symbolic enough. It is with the music by the latter that they quite often compare work of the guys from Kramatorsk, and there are really two reasons for that. Mamanet offers to the audience an intellectually energetic, strangely bewitching mixture of trip-hop, acid-jazz, post-rock, drum'n'bass and even disco – it is far not possible to define the group's art with some concrete word. Plus – despite of such specificity, they also perform their compositions live, real-time. If an opportunity arises – be sure to attend their concert, bright and positive impressions are guaranteed for you. However, the same can also be said about the album "Ki-Mono" – with such music, it is no shame to appear anywhere where they do understand music...

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.

Gutzul Magik Foundation. Molfar. /digi-pack/.

"Molfar", I guess, is about the fact that there is no difference where from and where to, because there as always here-and-now. Where there is no place for hope – hope requires memory and time – and here all the space is occupied with.. attention? I do not even know – you stay in this space while the album plays on, and then this space just plays on in you..

ILLaria, Alex Nademski. 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.

Dark Patrick. Rise of the Underworld. /mini-pack/.

..It’s hard to pinpoint exact influences that aptly mirror what Dark Patrick is going for here, though a safe bet would want to include nods to numerous strata of organic electronica, soundtrack ambient, world ethnotronica, psych and trip-hop. Additionally, the band claims some affiliation to the fertile soils of reggae, dub and trance...

Viktor Krysko. Cinema graffiti. The best of movie music. /digi-pack/.

Above all, Viktor Krysko is known as the constant member of the original Kyiv project Er.J.Orchestra, although recently he pays no less attention to the so-called K-Trio – Roman Kolyada's project. Well, and the album "Cinema Graffiti" introduces us to his somewhat different hypostasis. That of a composer.

DOK. DVA. /digi-pack/.

"Brutal pop power" – so they call it. But there is a great temptation to also add other words: post-rock plus acoustic acid jazz with trip hop education – something like this, probably. However, all these names do not contradict each other – because music like this as it is means going beyond the limits of specific style...

NimB. NimB.

Atmospheric guitars, the melodiousness of the bass, separate patterns of the percussion against the background of the not always unambiguous main rhythms – and the interwoven braids of the characteristic, emotional vocal by Olena Sas, crystal-clean and warm at the same time. It might seem that everything is simple – but this is sort of correct, saturated simplicity that makes it transparent and soft inside..
