Roman Kolyada. Angels Return.
Currently, life reaches such a pace that it seems that not just the head Ц the whole world goes spinning. And everything would be fine, but these modern speeds are somehow too often connected with fuss in the vicious circle "work-home-work-sleep-work-work-and" .. So you need minutes of silence, moments of falling out Ц you need pauses filled with the clear water of no-waiting. For where aspirations disappear Ц there is the possibility to see clearer.. Piano sketches by Roman Kolyada resemble emotional imprints of states, moods, situations. But listen to these moments: behind them, as if behind changeable mosaics of sun glares on the water canvas, there looms Ц the soft power of the quiet stream that cannot be stopped either with wind, or with a paddle. Outside Ц the light beauty of melodies, inside Ц silver canvas of the same pauses..

One day after a concert by K-Trio (a track performed by them is a bonus to the album) I found out that Roman was planning to soon release a new recording Ц in which he went back to pure piano music. Regretted a little bit then Ц because K-Trio had a strong and positive impression on me, and I was eager to hear their album right then Ц but now I realize that I should not have. For "Angels Return" Ц it's coolly simple, and it's Ц simply cool...

Anton Jozhik Leyba (Hedgehog)

Hurry up! The number of presentation copies is not too large Ц so, it is quite possible that there will be not enough discs for all those interested!

Bohdan Matviychuk. Mezzo Forte.


..the dreamy melodies by Bohdan Matviychuk cause the desire to watch, to listen closer: there is that subtle degree of silence in them that makes it possible to hear Ц your own heart.. Mezzo forte, "not too loudly" Ц isn't it the way the lightest dreams, memories, and reflections come to us?..

Olena Hrebenjuk. "Le Forze Del Destino" project. /digi-pack/


I do not know whether I will grow fond of opera, but I really like this disc. In this case, modernization, fortunately, does not mean vulgarization. The sound is so soft, mild, deep that it is impossible to come off it.

Shopping Hour. Amor. /digi-pack/.


This album is a phenomenon in the modern Ukrainian music. Here we have, first, interpretation of the European classics in the Latin American vein, which they definitely have not tried here so far. And, second Ц not only the music, but also the vocal manner has been reconsidered. Radically..
Domestic price: 142.12UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Revenko Band. Felicity.


Airy, almost weightless, joyful Ц although with a light pensive note, but without anchors of sorrow. This is not slow, heated summer Ц rather, fresh coolness of early spring, which is not afraid to become an attentive autumn in the course of time.
Domestic price: 135.08UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Roman Kolyada, Anastasia Kolodiuk. KoKo Melange. /mini-pack/.


..it seems that there has not been an album with such a seemingly obvious solution Ц ethno vocals plus keyboards. It should be admitted that due to appearance of KoKo Melange even if this issue has not been completely resolved, at least they have set the quality bar high: it would not be interesting to do worse, while it's no longer that easy to do better.
Domestic price: 190.30UAH, International price: $17.30USD

Roman Kolyada. Expectancy. /eco-pack/.


Several pieces in the beginning are just about how it was before. And then Ц you catches yourself thinking: no, this is not ragtime Ц but a clear echo, and the figure of a ballroom pianist emerges in your imagination.. And then Ц you discover that it was the beginning, because the music departs from the shore of abstract lyricism and starts its travel throughout the world..

Dmitry Krasnoukhov. Legend.


...it seems that "Legend" is currently the best album by Dmytro Krasnoukhov. At least in what regards inner harmony, balance, confidence in pauses Ц this is a different degree of attention, clarity, skills. No hurry, fuss, the whole album is a natural flow...

Dmitry Krasnoukhov. Na krylakh khvyli. (On the Wave's Wings)


This time, Dmitry does not prefer any specific paint Ц he transparently combines sounding of the piano and electronic keys. Therefore, music of the album lives somewhere between neo-classicism and ambient Ц while light folklore motives pop up sometimes as well. On the whole, it seems to me, "On the Wave's Wings" is music of the peaceful world. The world where people can and are not afraid to love.

Dmitry Krasnoukhov. Fairy Peace. (Magic World)


Recently, Dmytro Krasnouhov has released two new discs at once Ц "Magic World" is one of them. And this is really a magic world of transparent simplicity, some almost childish ability to notice small secrets inside of every ordinary day Ц the ability to see bright adventures where hustling people see names only.

Pylyp Dovhan'. SuzirТja Del'finiv. (Constellation of Dolphins)


Philip Dovgan is quite a young composer, now he is only 14. However, it did not prevent him from recording a full-value author disc. Moreover, the "Constellation of Dolphins" is not just a selection of compositions by Philip, this is an album, which has its concept and integral structure.

Dmitry Krasnoukhov. Birth of Angel.


...synthesized sounding performs the role of the background, adds colors, hint at the mood. No more. Here Ц all the same, piano melodies form the basis, and development of each piece, each theme takes place exactly following the logic of piano playing. Thus Ц it is pleasant to admit Ц these are again the melodies that are surprisingly soft, transparent, tender.

Dmitry Krasnoukhov. Drops Of Rainbow.


Under his hands, real piano is born Ц light, soft, tender plays captivate, make things around very simple. And how many melodies, how many faces, and all of them are different, but all of them have eyes of the same color Ц pure. It is important.

Myroslav Levytsky, Rens Newland. Elegant Dualism. /digi-pack/.


In fact, this is a dialog Ц amazing in its simultaneous richness of content and transparency. Not least Ц due to the skill of respecting pauses.. And if one takes into account titles of the plays Ц then the stratifications and cross-sections of images and meanings may get even more interesting. That is, it is not just about an elegiac mood...
Domestic price: 307.12UAH, International price: $27.92USD

Myroslav Levytsky. Session in Banff. Rollston Hall (live). /digi-pack/.


Myroslav Levytsky, as known, is one of the brothers who founded the jazz group "Braty Bluzu", which is significant for Ukraine. Today we offer to you to deeper, more attentively estimate Myroslav both as a composer, and as a pianist. Because, first, he just deserves that, and secondly Ц because what if not a solo album creates the best opportunity for this?

Vagif Mustafa-zadeh. One Day in Kyiv.


Masterly patterns painted in the air by gentle movements of fantasy and skill are extremely tender and tempestuous at the same time. They resemble the southern heat reproduced at the transparent windowpane by frost and rime.
