Vintash is a blank page in the music industry - for now. Based in Cologne, Vintash is a musician through and through. He describes himself as "mentally full of music", which makes sense with an upbringing in a musical family, sound design studies, and various adventures in DJ collectives. Vintash makes music that is instantly memorable and carries strong emotion and deep, hypnotic soundscapes. This is the first release by Vintash, but definitely not the last. Look out for this artist in the future!
Think back one second to overfilled clubs and crowded dancefloors. Imagine yourself right in front of the DJ booth, with huge, bass-pumping speakers on each side. An absolute banger comes on and the dancing crowd starts pulsating to the rhythm. The intensity is wild, everyone feels lifted to a different dimension, a different time. If it wasn't for the unique situation we find ourselves in across the world, the brand new "Medici" by upcoming German artist Vintash could be that banger. "Medici" has a bass-entrenched backdrop and high-pitched synth that writhes throughout the track. Throughout the whole track, there's an instantly memorable melody that lingers on even when the distorted synth takes over. At 03:40 in the track, we promise that you're going to be missing collective raves so much it aches. "Medici" was made for the darkest clubs, the pulsing strobe light, the sweat from being in unison with the tracks blasting from the speaking, and the feeling of being together in joy-filled ecstasy over the sweet, sweet tunes. Today, you'll just have to imagine being there, and with "Medici" in your ears, it's almost as if you are.
Where "Medici" was made for a clubbing experience, "Yalu" is just for you. It's the kind of music you put on that makes you walk faster and with a purpose. It's the soundtrack of a rainy fall day, industrial landscapes, lonely train rides. It's an epic build-up that keeps getting more intense every second. Lots of elements that seem to almost clash but instead come together in a powerful, almost angry cocktail. Filled with longing, emotion and pain, "Yalu" is an incredibly strong experience that transcends genres.
