Romanian Trip by Ratigar


Over a first year into his career, Ratigar is chasing those moments where his strange sound collages fit together like puzzle pieces of the sublime. In new release “Romanian Trip” he presents two minimal tracks that float in the same esoteric zone as the earlier music, albeit this time better suited for DJ use.

“Oxytocin” is a surprise highlight. It’s like you meet minimal house, with the kind of soft modular tones you usually hear on ambient records set. Euphoric yet utterly mind-bending, it starts abruptly, looping a cosmic voices and a syncopated clap pattern. Laying down another shuffling rhythm adorned with glistening snippets of icy melody a broken kick pattern and major-key synth give this one a comparatively upbeat feel.

“Nice to Meet You Barac” is smoother track, trading the originals cavernous atmosphere for a slower, groove mix. Twisting and turning through haze and noise, its unpredictability is addictive, with only trickles of a kick drum until its sublime conclusion. Meanwhile, Ratigar has never stopped throwing his meditative sound worlds into sharp relief with dazzling lightning bolts of sound.

In this release, Ratigar captures a distinctly Romanian brand of melancholy, often heard in minimal house tracks by beloved Minimal artists. It’s the kind of snaking modular workout he and many Romanians have spent the past few years refining, flowing underneath gently shuffling drums and the occasional synth tone.

Ratigar has been involved in organizing and overseeing parties in Moscow since 2007. He worked as a promoter, art director and manager in various techno clubs in the city. At the same time, Ratigar experimented on performances while DJ’ing as a vocalist, experiment with alternate voice utilization as a source of sound, creating unique live performances! So Ratigar got to know the music and this, as it turned out to be only a harbingers of the fact that in early 2015, he leaves his former life and completely gone into the world of music creation. Ratigar actively begins to study the subject of music from the very foundations. He learns mastering and notes from a real guru of this case, musician and successful producer LetKolben.
