Featured Guest

Latvian born and bred oyaarss describes the music he produces as “lullabies for decadent people“. Due mainly to the subtle aftertaste of uneasiness it leaves.

Being a staunch admirer of dystopian novels, post/math-metal, contemporary minimalist music and obscene distortion, has all left a massive footprint in his music, and the only thing you will fail to find in his icy landscapes is a gentle summer breeze. In a very weird way, indeed, it works as a soothing lullaby praising all that is cold, uneasy and eerie, and the heavy industrial harshness is merely a side-effect.

The concept of this studio live-set was to build it entirely out of “remixes” and collaboration tracks by oyaarss, most of them unreleased. This contains remixes for industrial acts (Kaltlicht, Cloaks, Fausten), hardcore/metal bands (Amenra, Kingdom, Tesa), classical music composers (Peteris Vasks, Zbigniew Preisner), as well as other collaboration tracks featuring other artists/bands. However, as one could suspect, this is not going to be a relaxing journey to The Bahamas.

At the moment oyaarss is polishing his début album Smaida Greizi Nakamiba that should see release early next year on the UK label 3by3. A label curated by the heavyweight duo Cloaks. His latest digital release The Future Smiling Wryly is available as a free download. If you want to catch him on stage, head to Brussels on December 2nd where he will be sharing the stage with Ancient Methods.
