A 70 min mix of chugging psych-rock and cosmic rhythms from the Ukranian DJ and producer.
Vakula's creative output is very much a result of his mood at the time; part of his own drama. Keen to distinguish himself from what he describes to us as the "general grey mass", his progressive sound is hinged on a connection to the here and now, allowing his creativity to evolve in an experiential way.
"Music is a reflection of who creates it", he tells us, "so you can say that listening to my music you are listening to the true me." In that case, most listener's route into the mind of Vakula was his magnum opus A Voyage To Arcturus, which has developed neo-cult status since its original release in 2014 and now gets rereleased on digital for the first time with Apollo.
We also dissected his unique outlook on life, touching on spirituality, isolation and revisiting the past: http://www.stampthewax.com/2018/09/18/stamp-mix-103-vakula/
