Premieres

PREMIERE – Shkema – Ola (GOOD SKILLS)

GOOD SKILLS was established in 2019 to become a household name for Lithuanian electronic music. Label’s goal is to represent a new generation of local talent and connect them with listeners from all over the world. We represent the noise of Vilnius’ youth. Run by two tall dudes born three days apart – Roe Deers and Titas Motuzas (BDHBTS).

Shkema’s debut album “Kronikos” is a double release with four originals and four remixes. This EP is a symbol of what can be achieved in a dark studio in 10 years. Author describes it as a “world news show, where each song represents a different story”. Some of them he has experienced himself, some are hearsay from TV news programs, and some are actually imaginary. Stories are not really related – just like in the news. “Kronikos part 1” will be released on July 9th on GOOD SKILLS.

Remixes from Each Other and Simple Symmetry. “Ispanija” was created during a friend’s band rehearsal. Psychedelic vocals sounded interesting in Shkema’s headphones while he was watching soundless singers and the muted musicians. The true reason why this track is called “Ispanija” is still unknown to this day. According to Shkema, “Ola” is an allegory of Plato’s cave. It’s a story about prisoners, chained in the cave and the only moving thing they could see was a passing shadow – quite deep, uh? Justin Strauss and Max Pask recently have joined up to form a new project Each Other. True dance floor legends delivered bass-busy remix of “Ispanija”. It could probably be best described as “juicy distorted bad boy from New York you don’t want to mess with”. Moscow’s finest – Simple Symmetry – joined the pack and went back to the roots. Their remix for “Ola” is a future clubbing classic, four to the floor banger with a drop perfect for pogo.
