In a place called Arkhangelsk, on the shore of the White Sea, a musician watches the water flow into the Arctic Ocean. The stars are much brighter, and more twinkly there than here, lighting up the sky in northwestern Russia. Lush forests, harsh climate and a seemingly endless Milky Way are the only – and constant – source of inspiration for our next Urban Cosmonaut Radio artist Donev.
His live set is a reflection of the world in which he lives in. You can hear the sound of vast lands in his intro as he looks far into space, onto water, upon trees. And you can feel his love for starry skies, and how he interprets them in his productions.
Donev produced this piece of music with a message in mind: to preserve the Earth we live in, and all its beauty and diversity, and to know that this is our unique journey. We wish you a peaceful dive, Urban Cosmonauts.

We've seen it coming... Summer is slowly fading, but there is yet some precious sunlight to grab!
A long time in the process and still perfectly on schedule arrives our latest installment to melodize the change of seasons and to soothe summers send-off into the southern parts.
It was once foretold, a long time family member by the name of @g-a-t-s would come to the light and bring with him a bundle of sounds, gathered on his quests, begotten with close accomplices.
The melancholicly beautiful "Schicksalsmelodie" is finally caught in the moment and ready to be unleashed into its future.
On "Cabo Verde" GATS got his @yelagua band members @lagoonsvoice and @tmplsound on board to sail around the shores and get lost in the siren calls.
And then third original "Christian Acid", instrumentally supported by Russian slowburner Donev, may guide you to spiritual freedom, or just take you on a ride. Might be up to you, i guess.
And what would all this frenzy be about, if we didn't have two fine remodels to go with it, thought of and conceived by the voodoolicious Ibu Selva and the irresistible Tofu Resistance, heading straight towards the dancefloors.
