Coming from a highly musical family, it’s no surprise that DanyloM was born with perfect pitch.
From a very young age, the pianist extraordinaire enjoyed classical music and first got in touch with Jazz at the age of 14.
From that day one, he dived deeper and deeper into this completely new world and studied it on his own until he got admitted to Glier Music Academy in Kiev, where he was taught professionally.
Discovering his love for “weird” styles of music and driving rhythms, he connected to bands and artists in the Electro Swing genre and started uploading videos of his own playing on Tik Tok, where one day “Electro Swing Thing” owner Wolfgang Lohr stumbled upon his profile and found his way into his inbox.
DanyloM has been releasing several original tracks, remixes, and collaborations with the label since and describes the whole experience as “a dream come true”, planning to produce even more high-quality music in that style he enjoys so much.
Roman Andor Krotil’s THE SOULMATE PROJECT is a tasty music cocktail that pairs modern beats with decades of vintage music sounds. Starting out as an award-winning remixer for acts like AJR, Umphrey’s McGee, and Work Drugs, the producer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist creates a nostalgic yet fresh sound experience.
In 2021 he released his debut album “Vintage Revisited” with songs ranging from jazzy Lo-fi Beats, over Funk to typical Electro-Swing sounds whilst collaborating with different singers. His newest release “La Femme Jolie” is mixing beautiful chanson influences with modern Swing house and soothing vocals by Might be Vero.
