Today’s premiere comes from Ukrainian DJ and producer Recid on Nastia’s imprint, Nechto. The track ‘Green Horse’ offers an intense yet melancholic trip through striking rhythms and wandering pads.
The third release on Nastia’s Nechto imprint embodies the artist’s aim to seek new ways of approaching music production – through creating various chains of midi effects, Recid offers an auditory piece of work that consists of unimaginable and striking variations of drums, melodies, and noises.
The EP is inspired by equestrianism and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, delivering at times an intense mood and narrative. The EP took a few years in the making, with some of the tracks being recorded more than two years ago in Crimea, with the rest finalized in Kyiv.
Recid, whose real name is Andrey Dyachenko, has been one of the key figures in Ukraine’s electronic music scene. Having played in Kyiv’s most prolific underground venues and events, including Nastia’s thrilling “NECHTO” showcases, Recid is now the resident of the renowned ∄ club on Kyrylivska 41 and continues to grow both as a masterly DJ and distinctive music producer.
The artist is driven by music’s unpredictability and how the collision of several styles can create a continuous rhythm that can excite the human mind. “These are sounds that manipulate human consciousness and that are capable of causing a real addiction, from which I will never rid myself of”, Recid says.
‘Green Horse’ displays a softer but no less intense side to Recid’s work. Meandering pads glide across the track as striking drums give a cathartic feel to the track. This is a go to closing track after a long night of dancing, a feverish dream through intricate melodies and rhythms.
