Izzet. Reggalia.

Even a year has not passed since the time when we found the first album of "Izzet" – and here you are – there’s the second one. As earlier, outwardly it looks like reggae, but inwardly - quite on the contrary. The explanation is that this album mostly contains not authors’, but folk songs – by the way, some of them were composed nearly 90 years ago! In that way we have an album of Tatar folklore arranged in the style of Jamaica folklore. All this sounds in an organic way, which is a sure sign of plasticity of Tatar language. For example, reggae would sound quite ridiculous in German – I am not going to offend anybody, but it is evident. Still, there’s another very important issue. What kind of reggae has everybody got used to? Everybody has got used to a light, relaxed and a bit superficial reggae. And here we feel a concealed resiliency, anxiety, inner force and melancholy. Besides, Eastern tunes attach very interesting nuances to this music. I think that all these things appear only due to the fact that all these songs are folk ones. Some kind of surprising and low-key expression is peculiar to them. But outwardly everything is quiet and light, because it is reggae. And it means that listening to this album somebody will have a good rest, while somebody will reflect on something. It is good.

The VYO. Ye? /digi-pack/. (Is?)


..starting from the first seconds it becomes clear that it worked out cool – and then this impression get only stronger. The roguishly relaxed groove that encourages one to dance – and the lyrics where soft humor easily transforms into sarcasm, and lyricism gets inseparably intertwined with banter..
Domestic price: 141.90UAH, International price: $12.90USD

5'nizza. KU. /super-pack/.


..there is much less boyish hooliganism, the characters have matured, sure, thus having lost something cloudless. And having gained something significant in return, it seems. At least, they have something to say and sometimes may even do that with a smile – which now contains much more shades. What you will hear – depends on yourself. 5'nizza opens various doors..
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

The VYO. Zeleny. /digi-pack/. (Green)


With this music – there are all the chances to swim to the summer almost unnoticeably, without straining where this is not needed. Ukrainian reggae with a mischievous smile and a hardened core. Just put on repeat – so much so that your hand reaches out for that – and you should not interfere with it.

The VYO. Mapa. /digi-pack/. (The Map)


..the life goes on – versatile, diverse. And the album "The Map" really resembles a map of life. Both in terms of the geography – half of the songs here have clear enough "links to the locality". And in emotional terms – because one can find here meditation, and irony, and gratitude, and joy, and sorrow...

The VYO. Ganja. /digi-pack/


...all songs of the album were restored – because their recording took place as long ago as in 1995-98. Such a rarity debut. However, fortunately, rarity is not its only virtue. Having listened to the disc one realizes that Ukraine is not as distant from Jamaica as they tell us at school and in the news. At least, some of our clouds do have similar form...

Mad Heads XL. Forever.


In the sphere of music, the group has developed and deepened the stylistics set with the album "There Is Hope" – thus, drive has became a bit less hard, but in some respect even more powerful, plastic. But there is also another aspect.Vadym Krasnooky becomes – forgive my loose definition – a lyrically-cheerful philosopher, and this does impress.

Mad Heads. Contact.


The group has deviated from its rockabilly image and offered its listeners melodious and vigorous rock. However, the group’s rock'n'roll alive spirit, as well as its power and dynamics, are preserved on this disс.

5'nizza. Piatnitsa. (Friday)


Everything these two guys achieve with the help of an acoustic guitar, light percussion and two voices is real and interesting. The honesty of youth may sometimes be harsh and rather coarse and at the same time this honesty cannot exist without tenderness, love and sensitivity

5'nizza. 05.


Pieces of fabric, languages, styles and trends, manners of performance, words. Pieces of fabric, different by form, size, colour, content and the way of processing – all of them are laced with one thread, in which two voices and one guitar are skilfully interlaced.

Izzet. My Security.


There exists the word “reggae”. This is a musical style. Philosophy. Religion. The way of living. Myth. Fairy-tale. Reality. Really unreal reality. Rest. Inner work. So much inner that it even looks as if they were a continuous rest...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Vuraj. Rajok. /digi-pack/.


Belarus bands famous here are specific in their artistic, nonlinear attitude to arrangements, self-irony and – they are somehow particularly enlightened, I guess. When one listens to them – sometimes it seems that they are singing the anthem of the Sun, facing the dark wall of the ancient forest. And Vuraj in this regard is no exception.
Domestic price: 196.90UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Yuriy Kovtun. BraviBelli.


...the album at once creates elated, festive mood – but in a surprising way. In the correct way. Because, although about a half of the compositions can hardly be called merry ones – a smile is very expressly felt in them. Somewhere dim, somewhere transparent, somewhere dreamy, somewhere thoughtful – but it is present in each piece, and it warms.

Red Cardell. Narodzhennja. (Naitre) (Birth)


"Red Cardell" wished to create an album open for the whole world. As a result, French chanson was mixed with African rhythms, Ukrainian authentic singing – with Oriental, Asian melodies, Celtic archaic – with elements of trip- and hip-hop. And all this together laughs, dances, gets a bit sad, makes love...

Liapis Trubetskoy. Zolotye jajcy. (Golden eggs)


Their music is the mixture of everything that gets into your hands and is reinforced by a powerful and skilful spiritual section. You can find practically everything here, starting with grunge and ending with raggy, and all that is fully stuffed with Byelorussian outlook and sense of humour...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Zdob Si Zdub. 450 De Oi (450 Owes).


...when music is saturated with folklore motives so much, and at that not only with Moldavian ones, the language of performance becomes not so important – in such a case you only listen to music. You listen to music, which does not have even a hint at pop-variety art, as it is a real folk-rock...
