FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The artist of electronic music known as Zhivago has released his latest LP album, titled, “Deep Versions.” The record is comprised of nine original tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour, and features performances by Four Hundred members Brendan Benham and Shae Lappen. An eclectic, colorful and endlessly danceable record with a contemporary mind and a retro soul, “Deep Versions” by Zhivago has emerged as one of the most unique and fun records the EDM genre has to offer.

Zhivago cites as main artistic influences Ratatat, Tobacco, Leonard Cohen, Flying Lotus, m83, Air, Timbaland, Death From Above 1979, Bjork, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Beck, Bjork, Big Boi, Interpol, and Mark Knopfler. With such a wide variety of various inspirations, it may seem hard to intuit which attributes of these have gone into the music of “Deep Versions,” but a thread of quality in terms of artistic merit and excellent audio production runs through them all, and through Zhivago, too.

“Deep Versions” is mostly instrumental, but nevertheless has many stories to tell. This ingredient is key to the sound and experience of Zhivago's music, which communicates as it unfolds like the plot of a novel or film.

“I was raised by a pair of technogypsies and technomads who exposed me to the transient nature of both sound and storytelling,” writes Zhivago of his start in music. “This evolved into one-off electronic tent parties performed at the outskirts of desert towns. Parties would be set up at dusk, and music and stories would ensue throughout the night. By dawn the tents would disperse and the partygoers would disappear in search of new places to start the process over again.”

His new record isn't just music – though the music alone is considerable. It is a work of sonic philosophy and reflection.

Zhivago explains: “It’s a self-referential and postmodern take on the 'Human Contradiction' in terms of civilization’s shoddy attempts to mask and shirk its own animalistic tendencies, whilst justifying itself by outsourcing these actions through technology, and therefore attempting to wash its hands clean of its own intent.

“In short,” he concludes, “it is a critique on humanity’s hope that technology will save us from ourselves.”

“Deep Versions” by Zhivago is available online worldwide.
