Aby MC. Zelene. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folkmusik. /digi-pack/. (Green)
You yourselves might have noticed that this disc is a relative to the album "Korali", which is red in colour as well. Well, such kind of fraternizing is not only exterior, as here the matter concerns the search in a direction, which personally I find to be very interesting. After all, now we, mankind, have a great number of fragments and snatches of old systems and means of the world perception, and it concerns music as much as it concerns many other things. But today it is not enough for us, modern people, only to observe those fragments and to expose them to critical analysis. We need something else – empathy or living old experience again through modern means. In this connection, I think that modern interpretation of the traditional Ukrainian music, which is presented in this album, is one of the steps not only forward, but also deep down. In the first place - deep down. As for me, this attempt seems to be a success. If this attempt is not the last one – and I do hope that this is not the last one – then even we, average listeners, will soon have a very interesting ticket to travel to the city centre. It's quite another matter where we shall go – each person chooses the direction by himself. At long last, all roads lead you know where. "Green" – it is nice. I do recommend.

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.

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...

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.

Dazzle Dreams Sound System. Nepal. (CD+DVD).

On February, 21, 2008, the folklore expedition of the project Dazzle Dreams Sound System left for Nepal. The primary objective of the project is searching and recording of countries' ethnic music – music samples, accumulation of an original record library and its integration into their own music. During one week, the guys accumulated a great number of original samples, and they became part of new tracks by Dazzle Dreams.

SAMATA. Fire-show.

If music of the album were not interesting, even then this release would be worth buying – for the sake of the booklet, because it is a separate transparent trip. However, we a lucky – the music also opens for us something new indeed. Or, maybe, you know other works in the style of "Carpathians new-age with elements of ethnic jazz"?

Kind of Zero. Happy people. /digi-pack/

The third album of Serhiy Kindzerskyy is a bright mixture of different styles, as he feels equally comfortable in such styles as Progressive, Breakz, DrumNbass, Electro-Tech. Moreover, it is not the first time when Kind of Zero actively involves live instruments into his work – you can hear violin, pipe, electro- and bass-guitar on the new album.

Tartak, Huljajhorod. Kofein.

The new variant, I think, is to unite those who liked "Guliaygorod" at once – and those to whom it then seemed a bit too hard. Because the engine remains as powerful as before, besides the specificity of aerodynamics are now taken into account in the outlines, they have become smoother and swifter, but inside there are now much more cozy nooks. Result – both the speed and comfort have grown.

Carpathiana. Eat My Borsch.

...performances by the group are special for their ability to change the space, with this music air becomes light, but very saturated, energetic. However, it is not surprising, in fact Carpathiana combine in their work club, electronic culture – with the colors of Ukrainian folklore.

Aby MC, Tanya Radosteva. F5. /digi-pack/

There happen moments in life when suddenly you understand that you are happy not some time after, not some time ago – but right now, right here, just as you are – happy... This album is full of exactly such happiness – it exists right here and now, it quietly shines in each melody. Here, it is very cozy...

Aby MC. Ocetni standarty. (Acid Standards)

They strikingly harmoniously combine clear sorrow, sadness – with joy as clear. And that is why there is inside always a place left for light. Usually, children have this ability – and it does not matter how old they are...

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.

Хотілося б відмітити музику... Використання ж етнічних вокалів, на мою думку, не дуже підходить для цілковитої гармонії. Я давно знаю цей проект і загалом хочу відмітити їх як команду, що тримає свій стиль на високому якісному рівні. І також підкреслюю, що позитивним моментом є заохочення молоді до українського етносу. Але ж зараз цього забагато... фестивалі... той же альбом "Коралі"... А от якісного, як називають, есід джазу... Пам'ятаю їхню пісню "Роби те, що маєш" - не етнос, але дуже по-українськи.

Мені теж дуже сподобалося, але якраз автентичні співи бабусь дуже класно йдуть саме під таку музику, бо окремо вони менше вставляють... А разом!!!

Всім Рекомендую!

Спасибо Умке, за то, что она есть! Ибо как у нас в Сибири ещё послушаешь украинскую музыку!
А по поводу Зелёненького... это лучшее, что я слышал в подобном стиле за последние несколько лет!
Пробирает до глубин моей похмельной души :)

Дуже, деже сподобалося. І не тільки мені. Слухали всією стідією дизайну.
Гарна тенденція в музиці, яка сприяє зацікавленості молоді до національної творчості та народного етносу. Було б ще краще, якби було створено щось подібне, але з використанням професійних співаків, хорів та студійного запису. Оранжування можна постійно розвивати та вдосконалювати.
А в цілому - дуже добре. Отримав задоволення
