A message from Dmytro Fedorenko

Dear friends,

With this corona-panic and closing and canceling of everything, many artists who actually do depend on their live shows as their main or only income, are really in trouble. Canceling of one month fees would hurt anyone. Artists are not being compensated for these cancellations. There is no company who would pay artists their fees no matter what.Many artists are looking for a different type of support, but there is something obvious that could work right away. Here’s the idea you might consider for these days and weeks:If you planned to go to some event of an artist you love, and this artist’s gig was canceled, please simply go to artist’s personal Bandcamp and spend those little cash you planned for the door ticket and beer on simply buying a vinyl, cassette, CD or download. Buy one track! Nearly every artist has a Bandcamp, all money from these sales go directly to artist’s pockets. Don’t stream on Spotify, buy on Bandcamp today. Trust me, even just a few bucks matter.This is not an abstract thing now. Today you can really support music by doing something real, even if small but really real.Go, find your beloved artist’s Bandcamp and make an action!

Kotra & Zavoloka with a special release on Kvitnu

Today KVITNU turns 13 years!

And this time we decided to make a quite unusual release for our birthday.In September 2019 Ukrainian singer and veteran of Russian-Ukrainian war Anastasia Shevchenko (СТАСІК / Stasik) released her song “Lullaby for the enemy”. The frankness and true radicality of this song amazed us, and immediately after the video for this song came out, we (Kotra and Zavoloka) offered to Anastasia to make remixes to Lullaby, and she accepted our offer.

We will not write additional concepts. This song’s text already contains it all.Song lyrics are provided in three versions – Ukrainian, Russian and English. You’ll get them together with the music.

Original video of this song – https://youtu.be/40WD9RDAMVc

More about Стасік (Stasik) on her web sites:

Like some of our previous releases for the anniversary of the label, this one also comes in two formats – a free download for everyone, and a 7 ” vinyl that will be produced as a special, limited in time, on-demand edition.The final amount produced depends on how many pre-orders we will get during first two weeks after a release date. Then orders are closed and no more copies are planned for additional pressing.We will announce final amount of the edition, which will be hand numbered on each cover.
