« If man does not want to disintegrate himself, he must learn from his darkest hours. » - Kazuo Ishiguro
Broken is one of these artists that are unknown but whose work we recon deserves your ears. Our producer is a 20 years old Ukrainian student for whom music is an inherent part of his life. His influences are broad but nonetheless vital to his work. His first musical illumination comes around 7-8 years old with Eminem albums that he listens to over and over again. It’s not the rhymes that amaze him (he does not understand English yet) but the flow and the musicality.
He has different periods of major inspirations during his early years: Eminem for the flow and musicality, Metallica for the melodies and then electro-house for the beats. In 2010 this introvert music producer started experimenting with these influences to harvest his musical inspirations, defining his own dark and harmonious environment.
The key thing about Broken is the reason for his alias. Unsatisfied with what he was producing in terms of French Electro, Dubstep and D&B in 2013 he almost quit making music. He decided to change things in his life, breaking his production habits and reorienting his vision.
The different artists that he now relates to are BONES, Greaf, BLACK CEILING, Summer of Haze, Burial, Sorrow and Niels Binias. To give you some insight on what this project means to him : « (…) my thoughts are breaking me down sometimes and my music is my very own reflection. 'The Dark Side of Me' expresses it in the best way. »
Artists who encapsulate their very soul in what they do always have our ear at Moose Records. This is one of these artists that we believe needs to be recognized and shared. His dark and mellow tracks are like those obscure night skies: full of hope as much as they are hopeless. No matter where you look in this emptiness, the smallest of stars always catches your eyes.
