An insight to Vykhod Sily

Vykhod Sily is a brand you should be familiar with If you are into your beats more abstract, dark and meticulous. Launching in 2013 Rustee has been delivering specially crafted podcasts taking you on excursions through 85/170bpm electronica music and has a whole series of guests from established DJs all the way through to exciting underground live acts.

Fast forward to 2018 and with careful plotting VS has now released their 2nd project as they now have made it an imprint, bringing you the same ethos as the brand, solid top quality 170 from the likes of dreadmaul, Akinsa & Ghoulcut to name a few. We had a quick catch up with Rostislav (Rustee) the curator and mastermind behind everything.

DBS: Good afternoon and big thank you for your time today Rostislav, so let’s take it all the way back to 2013 with a generic ‘’how did the podcast start’’ question…?

VS: Ez. Huge thanks for having me on this interview. Let’s go back even a bit further in time. Just before the VS podcast started itself I had had a little mix series encompassing 85BPM dubby/tribal sounds called “Rusty Dub”. It was 5 mixes in there back in 2012 featuring the vibes of The Untouchables, Morphy, Thing and many others. So this very mix series shaped the future VS podcast concept as I was keen on dark and deep sounds in that vein. After closing the “Rusty Dub” I was still full of intention to keep on exploring those vibes and was also thinking of doing a podcast on a regular basis. Everything happened pretty quickly. I got a radio slot offering from my old friend and having already a podcast name in mind I launched Vykhod Sily on djstation.ru being aired weekly on Thursdays. In the very beginning, the podcast was strictly halftime dnb but the boundaries got pushed very soon.

DBS: What is your musical history/background, I know you have got a strong passion for funk and soul do you think if you weren’t doing 170 you would be going down those routes? Also, how has the Russian scene grown in regards to electronic music since you started?

VS: Have been a dnb head actually since 1997, following Metalheadz, GLO, Moving Shadow labels. So I’m calling them a “formative influence” to me as a listener. In connection to funk & soul music the more I was listening to dnb stuff in 90’s the more interested I got in samples and the sources for them. So back in 2005, I started buying 45’s records and playing out in my city. Actually, I still keep going 2 ways now, one is drum-n-bass in the shape of a blog and a podcast/label and the other is my soul/funk alter ego where I’m spinning vinyl on a regular basis in Yekaterinburg. Talking about the Russian scene evolving since 2013, yeah the movement has been grown significantly with all the new guys producing appeared on the scene. We have Torn being released on Horo, Dailiv, Hidden Tactics, Code 906, Protagonist, and my others as far as the new names are concerned. Those guys are getting recognized in the deep drum-n-bass circuits outside Russia and this is a wicked thing.

DBS: Now onto the label, I feel when someone builds a brand up it’s the natural progression to then move onto an imprint or events, how was the transition for you and what are your goals?

VS: I was often asked why we didn’t start a label. The time wasn’t right for that a few years back maybe. In 2017 we (with my fellow mate Virulent Green) launched a crowd-sourcing campaign on Patreon with the main aim to build up a community and to set up a label being supported by the people who have been following us. It worked quite well. Up to now, we have 2 releases which came into existence with the assistance of our Patreon heads. All the releases are given away for free. Download them in 320 from patreon.com/vykhodsily_podcast/releases.

DBS: Could you tell us anything about future releases?

VS: Yeah, we have the following roster for the next 6 releases:
VS003 – Ahmad & Akinsa
VS004 – Dailiv & Cryptographic
VS005 – DYL & Spiraal Aurel
VS006 – Entire & Istota
As you might notice all the releases will be the result of a collab work. We started with that concept and we will follow that way, connecting guys together and giving them new spaces to create.

DBS: Time for a quick top 5 now….producers you’re feeling?

VS: Andy Skopes, Dissident, Dubmonger, Owl, Blocks & Escher

DBS: Any Last Words?

VS: Big shout to the worldwide VS family, to the people who have been sticking with us for these 5 years (subscribers, DJ’s, bloggers). Maximum respect to all the artists bringing the new sounds and pushing the boundaries. The project is going on strong thanks to the constant dnb scene evolving. And I believe we are in for a long and joyful way to go. So hold tight.

VS002 – GhoulCut & alg0rh1tm – Out now!

‘’Social Box’’  kicks things off with the pop-gun synth-bass, intricate percussion edits and looming pads, think of it as a journey through the underworld this track is bursting with emotion which keeps everything locked in nicely  A sublime, stripped back groove which pulsates with a technoid insistency

‘’Faraway Dreams’’ gets trippy with the drum space, haunting tribal soundscapes and live elements, The atmospheric susurration, the constant manipulation of that drum pattern, with a little distortion here or some glitching there. If you’re going to make a track with minimal elements those elements have to be perfect, and this is close to it.
