Piktor – Similar Feelings EP [feeder sound]
The second feeder sound vinyl-only release is a solid purple pressing titled “Similar Feelings” signed by the Romanian DJ and producer Piktor, while the artwork is the FSAS mural painting by KSELEQOQYNQYSHY. The opening track, “Similar Feelings” (08:07), which lends its name to this robust issue, introduces the listener to an unremitted flowing state, continuing, on the same side, to deliver the punctilious energy of “The Night Before” (05:32). Side B is dedicated in full to “The Gift that Keeps on Giving”, a track that runs for 11:21, building a multispectral image akin to an unearthly reverie.
This moment marks another significant achievement for the feeder.ro platform, which connects the local and international artists with an insightful audience, for over 15 years. Stemming from the same passion for electronic music that created the weekly feeder sound series, the review column, as well as the possibility for renowned or emerging artists to contribute to the platform on their own, the release marks almost three years of collaboration with deejay.de. feeder.ro’s publishing schedule consists of weekly EP, LP, or VA reviews, coming from artists from all over the world, with a focus on the Romanian scene. Investigating the contemporary local culture we came across a lot of groovy sounds, mysterious rhythms and beautiful compositions, coming from more or lesser-known artists. Feeder sound’s first vinyl-only release, Suflet Prezent EP by Romanian artist Dragutesku, was quickly sold out, benefitting from a worldwide motion through excellent record stores.
Born in Romania and now residing in Vienna, Austria, Victor Pavlovschi aka Piktor is well-known for “Acid Space EP” dropped on Lokomotiv and “Senin EP” on Subtil Records, as well as for his vibrant selections as a DJ. In the last few years, he steadily built a career around electronic dance music, playing alongside Barac, Sepp, Nils Weimann, Martin Glowacz, Oana Leca, Lisiere Collectif, Alexandra, Macarie, and many others. In 2018, his mix for feeder sound podcast series was number 1 in the annual TOP 10 with 12.9k plays counting now, while it provided one of the first listening opportunities for the tracks “The Night Before” and “Similar Feelings”, released now on the second feeder sound vinyl-only release, Similar Feelings EP. In 2019, the feeder.ro platform premiered exclusively “Up In The Air” from the “Second Thoughts EP” [Baumbaum Label].
