Darius Vaikas - Oasis EP [PETS076]

by darius vaikas



Please welcome Darius Vaikas.

Lithuania-born, Denmark-based, consistently soulful: Over the last five years Darius has developed a spotless reputation with releases on the likes of Best Kept Secret, Project Mooncircle, EleFlight, Get Physical and more. Now he leaves his mark on our souls at Pets with four beautifully constructed pieces of soulful techno and electronica.

‘Brother’ sets the scene... An airy narrative coded with deep synthetic hope, it’s a graceful way to open this immaculate, soul-arresting and detailed label debut.

‘The Bells’ follows with a charming mysticism that’s conjured through both the calming chimes and the hopeful chord structure that hums unhurriedly. A cadence created through the juxtaposition of grainy and sparkling elements, there’s a warmth and familiarity that’s not dissimilar to Iz & Diz’s cult classic ‘Mouth’.

‘Oasis’ A measured sojourn into dusky pastures where a sparkling chime and stately kicks provide the guiding star and the melodic elements wrap around it with yearning subtle psychedelia.

Darius bigs us adieu with ‘Save Me’, easing us into its slipstream with breezy pads and atmospheres that at first appear innocuous but gradually take on a life of their own as more human textures are added. Building into a breathless state of weightlessness, instant gravity is triggered as the groove re-ignites midway.

See you again soon…
