Aбсолютное волшебство.... :o)
Who are you?
Valentin Yakovlev from St. Petersburg.
Why do you write music?
Maybe this that where I can feel the force. Where my
brain works most of all. I constantly think of music. Even

"St. Petersburg (Russia) based Valentin Yakovlev creates warm emotional electronica with triggered glitches and
tweaked out bleeps. And emotional electronica can not exist without emotion. With this in mind, this 23-year old

beneath the deconstructed guitars and soft synth pads. Micro programmed percussion pushes the rhythm
forward, while plucked guitar strings and processed sounds swirl around in a smoky whirlwind." - Headphone Commute.
