Beschreibung und Texte
There is something in this track which taps into a primal state of transcendental peace within me, it has a bubbling, magical quality through every tone. I fancy this is one of the most personal offerings on the channel and that for most it won't even register, but that's great, and that's just enjoying music 1:01. Vataff Project stems from Bulgarian DJ Victor Marinov (hurrah for Victor!) and I quote the words on the Vataff Project website as follows:
The name "Vataff" is a word which has an analogue in the steppe languages and in the Near East languages /vatekh, fatakh/. It means "leader", "guide". In bulgarian folklore the leader of kalushars /rusaliys/ is also called "vataff". They are considered a folklore relict (remnant) of an ancient elite society of warriors, whose leaders probably were initiated in religious cult, and had the ability to heal /to "free"/ through special music, together with respective rituals.
Not only do I love this track, but also the spirit which they allude to as detailed above. I would love to put together a mix which frames this record as I personally hear it but finding and collecting (or producing myself) the tracks that could do this will doubtlessly take more than a couple of years. It's not just one of my favourite finds of 2013 thus far, but a piece of beat driven minimal techno that I will hold in high regard for...ever?
Big big big shout out to Aleph Zero Records from Israel as well, you guys are all irreplaceable and just sublime.
