► VAKULA (Ukr /// Leleka / Bandura / Shevchenko)
► WALRUS (Be /// Bepotel / Beyond)
► A.G (Be /// Opus)
► LEE DAVON (Be /// Kult.)

For this edition we invited VAKULA, the Ukrainian wonder boy with a unique style of both DJing and musical production. Known for being a driving force of modern house music and for his two record labels: Bandura, where he focuses on combining Detroit sound and deep, space out house, and Leleka, where he releases his experiments with melodies, ethnic elements and music from the mid 60s, 70s and 80s.

KULT. A night where different subcultures come together and dance the night away. Accompanied by innovative and qualitative electronic music for your mind, body and soul.

► VAKULA (Ukr /// Leleka / Bandura / Shevchenko)

Globally considered the deep house man of the moment, Vakula has gradually established himself as Ukraine’s most demanded musical phenomenon. Konotop-native Mikhaylo Vityk gained international recognition in 2008 after a series of highly acclaimed releases on upfront electronic labels such as Meakusma, Dekmantel and authentic dj mixes filled with thick, fudgy analogue groove and crisp multi-layered rhythmic palette.

Inspired by his grandfather’s traditional instrumentalist and bandura performer, he contrives to blatantly project Ukrainian and Slavic identity into a Detroit state-of-mind musical context through analogue synths, drum machines and old-school vinyl records. Vakula recently launched his own vinyl-only imprint Leleka, referencing to the Ukrainian cultural landscape and his passion for folk explorations, as well as participated in Firecracker’s Shevchenko affiliate, titled in honour of his country’s literary master. All the while he’s been regularly delivering sell-out EP’s for committed labels and has just released two full-length albums under aliases Vedomir and V.

His take on house music is heavily influenced by the rich history of the genre, with subtle jazz touches multiplied by unique and very personal attitude to sound design. Consequently Vakula became the first Ukrainian producer to hit the Resident Advisor series of podcasts with a mix consisting entirely of his own quality production. Mostly on tour, but when home, can be found around Kiev and Konotop observing the beauty of his land and riches of its history.

► WALRUS (Be /// Bepotel / Beyond)

Walrus hails from Brussels and is a quixotic DJ and producer that revels in idiosyncratic club music. Together with Sagat and &apos, he is a member of the house and electronic music project Bepotel. The three of them also run Bepotel Records. He is furthermore involved in organizing the bimonthly Beyond parties at the Fuse club in Brussels and plays in the synth-pop band Bright Entity. He enjoys sidestepping his club music focus by organizing wave parties called Myths and Rhythms.

Walrus spends his time away from the stage putting in hours of studio work, helping out in the legendary Brussels record shop Dr. Vinyl and adhering to a relentless routine of searching for new and exciting music.

His DJ-sets are carefully crafted assaults on what club music is often perceived to be. Walrus is not afraid to unbalance and dislocate his audience, confronting people with his definition of intent, groove and musical space and building up a quirky tension that is as serious as it is open-minded. His is an appeal to the power of the imagination to hold back the night, to charm motorways and to surf on beta waves.
