Premiere: Bojarchük – Force


Roe Deers brings together five producers for a new VA on his Good Skills imprint.

When did the exciting things in life become a chore? When did it all become mundane; a task that you didn’t want to complete? It was a regular occurrence that you’d have to force yourself out the door; force a smile when meeting friends; force small talk with that work colleague you used to spend every day with. The fuel had began to run out, the energy almost gone, and you started to question whether it would ever return at all…


Roe Deers offers us another deep dive into the sounds of Lithuania with a new VA, Sekta, on his Good Skills label. The Vilnius-based imprint shines a light on the talents coming out of the country at the moment, calling on the talents of Shurmin Nikit, Deserted Island, Zakmina & EGOMAŠINA, Skhema and Bojarchük to contribute. It’s full of raw funky grooves, slo-mo rhythms and oddball downtempo cuts that blend influences stretching from breaks, leftfield electronics and indie dance to new wave and post-punk.
