Oleh Skrypka. Zhorzhyna. /digi-pack/. (Dahlia)
"Dahlia" is actually a full-fledged development of the idea announced with the disc "My Heart is Vulnerable...". And this is what the official press release says about the album:

"Work on the album, which lasted over five years, took place in three global centers of the Ukrainian culture – it began in Toronto, continued in Kyiv and was completed in New York. The core of the album is formed by music pieces by Bogdan Vesolovsky – the composer who lived in Lviv in the 1930-40s and later emigrated for Canada for political reasons. The work carried out by Oleh and his team can be described as restoration – the unique music materials discovered in Toronto for many years were not performed for the public. In due time, when this music played, all the Galician and Bukovyna youth danced with it, and now modern ladies and gentlemen will also be able to enjoy the elegance, delicacy, and the light humor of the songs from our music heritage...

"I consider that the "retro" style, in which the album "Dahlia" is performed, is elegant – Oleh Skrypka says. – Moreover, jazz, tango, foxtrot, swing are generally considered European and overseas genres, and with this project I want to demonstrate that our country as well has its own rich, unique and high quality music history."

Note! This album is also released as a vinyl LP.

It is not the first time when Viktor Morozov contributes into a small miracle of renaissance. This time – having recorded with BB "Halychyna" the retro album of songs by Bohdan Vesolovsky, a legend of Lviv light music of the first half of the 20th century. Although a little bit less than 100 years have passed – the lightness and enchantment have not been lost..

Kuku Shanel. Polubelaya-poluchernaya. (2CD). /digi-pack/. (Semi-White/Semi-Black)

This is stylish music, and not only due to the nice pastiches. Everything is just done simply – in the good sense, when the output sounds so easy and smiling that you never think about the previous hard work.

Yevhen Rohachevsky. Razom nazavzhdy. /digi-pack/. (Together Forever)

In terms of the sound, one would call this album, quite unexpectedly, ... a collection of romantic songs. The manner of performance, the melody pattern are somewhat reminiscent of Ukrainian "vocal and instrumental ensembles" of the 1970s-80s: there was in that music a sort of sunshine, innocent, trusting openness to the world. Here – the same.

Akapulko. Dveri v Raj. /digi-pack/. (Heaven Door)

The author project by Serhiy Sakhno – the drummer of the legendary VV. "Akapulko" presents a completely new musical style, "trip-twist", as well as an incredible mix of Ukrainian melodies, dynamic hard "rock'n'pop", and the bluesy psychedelia of the 60s combined with the highly fashionable today "new sound of Berlin"...

Oleh Skrypka, Les Podervyansky. Humanists.

The performance concert by Oleh Skrypka and Les Podervyansky "Humanists" took place in December, 2000. Actually, 10 years after, in January, 2011, the performance got a new life... This recording is the case of an exclusive creative collaboration of two personalities significant for the modern Ukrainian culture.

Oleh Skrypka, Les Podervyansky. Humanists. (premium release). /digi-pack/

This recording is the case of an exclusive creative collaboration of two personalities significant for the modern Ukrainian culture. It is a pity that Les Podervyansky does not sing here. Instead, Oleh Skrypka actively participates in duping the plays, and this creates an additional comic and grotesque effect.. Published for the first time.

Yevhen Rohachevsky. Yickij Aun. (2CD).

Rogachevsky is the current guitarist of "VV". Starting from as long back as 1998. But he was also engaged in music earlier – actually, fruits of those exercises are collected in this double disk. We admit – these fruits are strange, and not everyone will enjoy tasting them. But if you like minimalism, punk, ska and rock-and-roll – by no means pass by it.

Dakh Daughters. Air. /digi-pack/.

It is obvious that something extraordinary was expected from DD – so that it were different from the first album but not inferior to it. The girls have met the both expectations, this is a cool art-house piece, quite far from the ordinary..

Dakh Daughters. If. /digi-pack/.

..a studio album is a different story, it offers an opportunity to hear, not to see: music balancing on the brink of theater. Due to the art of intonation, which sometimes reaches its extreme and takes a step further – but also due to the art of silence, which only rarely acts as a pause, taking a breath, but mostly it keeps producing supplementary senses.

Retroskop. Vesnyany tvist. /digi-pack/. (Spring Twist)

Love to simple beauty – that is, probably, what in due time conditioned emergence of the "Retroskop" band. And it should be noted that their liking for the music of the 1950s-60s was noticeable not only in performance of "classics of the genre"...

Jamala. All Or Nothing. /digi-pack/.

..It feels like listening to two albums simultaneously, one of which contains a colorful, complex mixture of styles, from soul and disco to electro-pop, with a bright admixture of classical training and jazz thinking. And the second one – blues, in all of its beautiful simplicity...

Jamala. For Every Heart: Live at Arena Concert Plaza. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/.

The concert performance – it is different, and not only due to presence of a new song. The sound, nuances of arrangements, team of musicians – but, above all – the energy. And this is the case when, even while just listening to the recording, you experience a kind of happening – not least due to Jamala's affection for gospel.

Jamala. For Every Heart. /digi-pack/

Jamala – and the debut album illustrates this very nicely – creates light music in the best Western tradition. And not just coolly – at a high quality level. Her love for soul, funk, jazz, burlesque and even classical music – it's all here, in this music so many things are mixed that you cannot guess everything at once...

Дякую за отриманий диск О. Скрипки "Жоржина". Коли слухаєш ці пісні, подумки поринаєш у 30-ті роки минулого сторіччя, коли грали такі музиканти як Дізі Гілєспі та Глен Міллєр.

Подякував Олегові Скрипці.

Можна по-різному ставитись до творчості О. Скрипки, але справу для нашої культури він робить велику й корисну. Ім*я Весоловського потрібно повернути Україні, як і весь чудовий світ західноукраїнської музики й літератури 30-років. Там є ті ноти внутрішньої свободи, що їх мені завжди бракувало у творчості "центристів". Історичні передумови цього цілком зрозумілі.

Українська музика як великий пазл, у якому бракує багато частин. Через відомі обставини Україна була викреслена з музичного процесу. Це стосується зокрема і 30-х років. Богдан Весоловський, до повернення якого долучився також Олег Скрипка, зробив свого часу неймовірне. Конкурувати з польською музику було вкрай важко (згадайте хоча б Єжі Петерсбурського, його відомі хіти "To ostatnia niedziela" (у рос. перекладі "Утомленное солнце"), "Ні я, ні ти" у виконанні Эдіт Піаф тощо).

А Скрипка не перестає дивувати. Здається, ніхто не зробив для української естради так, як він. Позитив від альбому неабиякий!
Те, що треба!
