FROM THE VAULT RESURRECTING A DOPE RELEASE FROM THE PAST
NOTE: First, out of gratitude, we surprise the artists who have accepted to be our guest writers from the 44th to the 63rd selection, by sharing what we humbly consider to be their top work.
Svarog also made this other memorable EP:
His last DJ live stream:
For the first time in the blog, we are facing an improbable coincidence, as the author of the golden release is also the artist that we scheduled to celebrate today: Svarog, who commented on our 54th selection. At the same time, it’s not that bad to focus on him these days…
“Myths” has been a fundamental release for the Ukrainian producer. Musically speaking, when you listen to his entire discography and collection of mixes, you notice a very stable sound signature, the hallmark of artists who clearly know what they want. For Svarog, it has been nourished by tracks that he plays as a DJ, from artists such as Ness, Deepbass, Reeko, Shifted and Mike Parker. Finding a home in this family of sound, he has always produced dark atmospheres, electrifying basslines, with eventual dreamy chords. Yet something was missing to stand apart from his peers. A “lost” release from 2016, called “The Aneid” showed his interest in ancient rituals. Norite highlighted it in “Myths”, which officially defined Svarog’s conceptual shamanic image.
Lately, he agreed to share more details on this musical episode: “About a year before “Myths”, another hypnotic techno musician from Ukraine, Bohdan, released a record on Norite, which pleased me a lot. I was in awe of the label’s music, so I contacted the owners to release an EP with them too. Their project has a very clear positioning on nature, ancient times, esoteric and cosmic views. The artwork was created from classic woodcuts from the Middle Ages. Everything was reunited to give the identity I was looking for for my moniker.”
