Known for their intriguing cross-genre compositions and recent collaborations with Cocteau Twins’ frontman Robin Guthrie and OMD’s Malcolm Holmes, Canada-based dreampop duo Ummagma has made a beautiful cross-Atlantic gesture by delivering an impressive downtempo remix of ‘All My Gods’ by Ukrainian artist Omodada feat. Tik Tu. The remix accompanies the original track, now available as a single via U.S. label Moon Sounds Records (Texas).
Ummagma recently released their ‘Frequency’ EP, which was met with critical acclaim and was included in over 30 blog ‘Best of 2015’ lists. In 2014, their collaborative LP ‘New Born’ with Moscow’s Sounds of Sputnik held in America’s CMJ college radio charts for 7 weeks – longer than any other release from the former Soviet Union and also earned Sounds of Sputnik a Jagermeister Indie Award.
Omodada is the solo project of Lesik Drachuk, a multi-instumental artist and producer, based in Ternopil, western Ukraine. In 2015, he debuted with his neo-psychedelic “Kimnaty” EP, widely considered as one of the year’s Ukraine’s best releases.
All My Gods (feat. Tik Tu) is an epic song about bringing humanity to another planet. “We wanted to create an atmospheric picture with a view on eternal space, envisioning ourselves singing this song in a spaceship leading us to the red planet. We consider ‘All My Gods’ as a perfect soundtrack for the Discovery Science channel,” explains Lesik Drachukof Omodada.
“It was cool remixing this track and our vision for this was to move from the outer space view that Omodada originally had for this track to one’s inner space,” explains Alexander Kretov of Ummagma. “I’m originally from Ukraine and I really enjoyed working with this band from my home region”.
Lesik Drachuk got his musical start as a performer in the punk-folk bandLos Colorados, where he played drums and bass, as well as contributing back vocals. Between touring Europe and Canada, the band released several viral cover videos with nearly 7 million collective views on Youtube.
Tik Tu is an indiepop band formed in 2014 from the ashes of the project Echo Gardens, a trip hop band that released two albums and toured Ukraine and Eastern Europe for two years. Comprised of the same musicians – Roman Boshko (bass), Nataly Bagriy (flute, keyboards) and Lesik Drachuk (guitar) – Tik Tu creates an entirely different genre of music and utilizes additional instruments. They bring an eclectic mix of electronic and live sound, using samplers, flute, violin, drums and guitars during live performances. Nataly give a delicate vocal performance with lyrics in English, Ukrainian and Lithuanian. The band recorded this single in an abandoned village, far from the city noise.
