Molotov 20, Marta Shpak. Enlighted. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folk music. /digi-pack/

In the collection of modern interpretations of the traditional Ukrainian music, there is new fresh blood. Moreover, with a somewhat updated concept. If you remember, in the first albums authentic singing went through modern processing. This time – vocal parts are sung especially for the project. Thus, Shura Gera – we know him, apart from the rest, as Molotov20 – and a girl with the very spring name, Marta Shpak. If the album has the name "Osyayni" ("Radiant"), it is simply obliged to be hospitable, friendly to the audience, not to frighten them with the onset, but to sing lullabies on waves of various rhythms. Actually, this is what is happening – Shura already recommended himself long ago as a skilled expert and talented electronics guy. Rhythms of "Osyayni" bewitch with their soft, silent pace. Marta, in her turn, also obviously appears here not by chance. Her voice has a very interesting feature – it somehow inexplicably combines in itself the past and the future. It seems to be native – and somehow not from here. That’s why the singing floats a sort of both within the music, and independent of it, within its own coasts. I will not object that it intrigues. More than that. One of these days I heard one of the tracks on the radio and thought that it was Nina Matvienko singing. And now I listen – and it does not seem to resemble. Such a girl Marta is, with her voice changeable as if a pussycat – it charms by and by. And that’s what I wish you.

Katya Chilly. Ja – molodaja. (I Am Young)


In music world which she created the folklore tune, folk songs themselves, modern music with the electronic polyrhythmic stuffing and something from opera in the vocal are rebraided together. All of this creates an unforgettable effect.

Molotov 20. Korali. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folkmusik. /digi-pack/


...being a city-dweller and an average person, I cannot listen to an authentic singing for quite a long time. I need not only voice melodies, but also more or less complicated rhythms and some additional melodious lines. That’s why it is very good that the projects like this one appear...

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: 131.12UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Astarta. Astarta/Edwin. /digi-pack/.


Cooperation of Astarta (a side project by Eduard Prystupa) with Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree bass-player) is just an example of such quality implementation of ideas, when first you do not even try to understand what the essence is, but just listen. Listen carefully, because it is delicious.

ILLaria. 13 misyatsiv. /digi-pack/. (13 Months)


...Ukrainian authenticity is primarily the mystical energy of the earth and the complete harmony with the space. This is very powerful music! The new disc by ILLARIA is a kind of a calendar of Ukrainian music traditions. It includes cover versions of well-known folk songs based on authentic archival records.

Oleh Skrypka. DJ O'Skrypka: Ethno disco party. /digi-pack/.


A compilation album by DJ O'Skrypka in the progressive "ethno-disco" style. Selected hits by the famous "Ukrainsky Vechornytsi" composed of dance tracks performed by Oleh Skrypka, the groups "Vopli Vidoplyasova", "Vasya Club", "Mandry", "Stelsi", "Soncekliosh" and other leading contemporary Ukrainian musicians.

Alibi. Folk. /digi-pack/.


...arrangements of this album very relevantly intertwine Ukrainian melodies with folk tunes of other nations. The palette is very broad – from klezmer and to gospel – and that, you know, positively impresses. Definitely – "Alibi" grows over itself, and grows in an interesting way.
Domestic price: 174.90UAH, International price: $15.90USD

Pavlo Tabakov. Rizdvo dlja dvokh. (Christmas for Two)


Careful attitude to derivative material, interesting arrangements, general saturation of the musical component with various optional but so appropriate decorations – all of that is here. And all of that makes the album "Christmas for Two", maybe, one of the best pop-albums devoted to the theme of Christmas during the several recent years.

Ruslana. Wild Energy.


"Amazon" became the messenger of changes – though interesting but still a test of forces, reconnaissance of other territories. Now this is obvious, because "Wild Energy", in its turn, is a weighty result of those very deep quality transformations. The disc should, obviously, become the head stone in creating the image of a new Ruslana – and it has everything necessary for that. This is really another quality of music, and not only music.
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

Ruslana. Amazonka. (Amazon)


Well, you may be confident – she will surprise you. First – with that she has finally managed to separate herself with a significant distance from the Ruslana who was glorified by Wild Dances. Sure, that was far not easy – sure, that was vitally necessary. And, second, – she will no doubt surprise you with HOW she has changed...

Serhiy Zakharec'. Huljay, molodyy! /digi-pack/. (Make Merry, Youth!)


The project "Make Merry, Youth!" is an attempt to connect in the ethno-pop music genre reconstructed samples of folk and professional traditions of the center and east of Ukraine, use authentic music instruments, playing techniques and sound scales for their full-fledged introduction into modern youth culture. And also – to make the ear of a wide audience of listeners used to the new timbre...

Wedding Songs. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folkmusik. /digi-pack/


As for me, the wedding with such musical background could attract attention not only with merry mood but with extraordinary uniqueness as well. Trust me that such kind of the performance both with difficult rhythms of modern electronic music is something amazing.

Max Chorny. The New Sound of Ethnic Ukraine.


In spite of the fact that this album is an electronic one, personally I associate it with my childhood, though being a child I knew nothing about electronic music. May be, the explanation is that the album contains the melodies, which I heard by radio in those times.
