Still working on that hot first release.



Anatoly ICE is a break-beat DJ who has Bob Marley’s tracks in his playlists, a house DJ obsessed with funk and soul, a hip-hop DJ crazy about Beck and Bjork. Mixing different genres together, wiping the rims out, in modern electronic vibes of traditional 70s funk. 45s addicted record collector, promoter, beat digger and music lover. His production is carefully constructed segments of the funk 45s, soul tracks, hip-hop beats, breaks, afro, latin and Brazilian grooves. DJ, producer, and host of the Funk and Beyond parties and radio show (running for more than ten years), Anatoly Ice has been drawn to the swing of a phat beat for a long while. Old school funk with new school attitude is the best description of his music taste and dj style.

2013 saw collaboration of Anatoly and veteran songstress Dariya deliver jams that sizzle with a fuzzy air of 60s nostalgia. Dariya's vocal delivery is crisp, clear and decidedly sexy as she dips into her mother tongue for very brief respites. With punctuated pianos, big swinging drums, horn ensembles, funky guitars, saxophone and trumpet solos that's tighter than an austerity budget, this is an exemplary lesson in funk.

Their debut 7 inch single with Whatcha Trying To Do (To Me)/Tell Me, Tell Me was released spring 2013 and was sold out in few weeks and receive warmest feedbacks from the top djs and producers all over the world. Next one followed in 2016. Another 7 insch single with their very own version of the Anthony Hamilton & Elayna Boynton well known classic Freedom from the Django Unchained motion picture soundtrack. While Anatoly Ice is giving the tune a soulful touch and adding more focus on the groovy side of things, deep vocals by singer Dariya pointing out the bluesy and dramatic feel of the song even more intense. The track is featured on their debut album A Long Way, which was release March.2017 on Confunktion records. 

11 tracks album was assembled by a puzzle of samples from dusty records, melodies and rhythms influenced by 40s jazz, 60s soul and 70s funk music and by spending hundreds of hours in the studio with various musicians, composers and good friends.

This long way was worth going for both of them, because it was a door opener for them to new ideas, musical influences and new songs. They are far away ending their musical journey and working on new songs already by now. Until then be welcome to enjoy their album 'A Long Way'.

Continuous search through tons of records, inspiration during travels and studio work, frustration and countless dj gigs, all that leads to creation of another album, which was released in November 2018. «Still Searching» Mixture of hip-hop beats, soul tracks, psychedelic vibes, abstract music, samples and sounds from movies and weird things, which were found all over the cyberspace and during travels. Basically instrumental album, but 4 tracks with lyrics are definitely album highlights. Voice and lyrics by wonderful singer, flute player and poet ISKRA. After all this music is about love, passion and changes
