Vakula

    Mikhaylo Vityk's track titles—"Deep Deep Down," "T H E O Son" and "Gospel Keyboards"—alone would tell you plenty about his approach to house music.

    Mikhaylo Vityk's track titles—"Deep Deep Down," "T H E O Son" and "Gospel Keyboards"—alone would tell you plenty about his approach to house music. As Vedomir, V and, most often, Vakula, Vityk has mined further and more thoroughly into classic US house tropes than anyone in recent memory.
