OLIGARKH Short Info

Oligarkh is young producer, looking for special Russian vibe in between progressive electronics and sounds of his motherland. His art made as collage of images, melodies and words, describing different sides of national character. Spiritual, folk, thug and lyric music decorated with thick bass of bell toll, 8-bit balalaikas and broken rhythms. Using this gears he leads audience from bright temple to dark forrest, from Kremlin walls to dense village, from ghetto-like suburbs to luxury closed districts. All his music built on contrasts like that, setting high culture against peoples, modern agains ancient.

Oligarkh grew up in russian traditional atmosphere and love it. His music education started in orthodox choir. His family visited church on every religious holiday, kept fasts and customs as many generation before them did.

The first independent tracks became independent mem, illustrating events in Russia. His debut “abstract-orthodox” longplay Zemlya i Volya (Land and Liberty) was released in christmas eve and got 20 000 likes in two weeks after New Year. Russian internet was confused, “is it true love to motherland or first echoes of new Russia”. Some people seen in him “a typical occurrence for doom generation”, others — “reconsideration of pre-urban sound” and epic trap-shit.

Oligarkh’s performances aren’t regular disco. It’s great spiritual experience^ inspiring and devastating. Together with drummer he makes unbelieveble solid music from fragile abstract hip-hop to heavy dubstep. His gigs are supported by video-hasher of historical films, documentary, fairytale and media heroes.
