This Week's Guest Mix

In a world where everyone and their mother wants to become a deep house producer, Vakula stands apart as a leader in the genre and someone who represents all that is good about the sound. His 2015 album Voyage To The Arcturus is one of the year’s standout electronic long players, which Bradley Zero even claimed was his favourite of the last decade!

Pitched more as a soundtrack than an album, it featured plenty of live instrumentation, cinematic elements and a sprinkling of jazz, all of which offers you something a little different every time you listen. Off the back of that triumph we invited him for a Worldwide mixtape (recorded on a tape machine no less!), which provides as many surprises as his latest album does.

Vakula’s next album, Dedicated To Jim Morrison, comes out soon. Check his Facebook for updates.
