Wizards York release new EP 'A2k'


The composers of electronica music known as Wizards York have released their latest EP record album, titled, “A2k.” The EP is comprised of three original tracks, “About to Kick,” “Safari Break,” and “Supajoint,” and has an approximate total listening time of 15 minutes. It is their most prominent official release in many years, and features a new, warmly analog tone that differs from their previous compositions as the Wizards of Sound. An explosive, highly danceable trio of tracks with innumerable hooks and infectious melodies, “A2k” stands as irrefutable proof that Wizards York are an act to watch in the modern EDM scene.

The style and groove of “A2k” hearken to the fast-paced, live sound promulgated by artists such as Fat Boy Slim in the early 2000s, but with a contemporary spin that re-imagines traditional house music elements and includes a few elements commonly found in dubstep. The result is a record that can be played at nightclubs, house parties, on drives and in headphones.

Speaking of their artistic influences, Wizards York write, “Anything can influence us to make our music! From a sunny summer beach on the sea to the politicians fooling and slaving the nations with their f**ked up democracies…” Pressed to mention the names of artists, they reply, “There are too many of them to start to mention. Varies from completely electronic music to jazz, soul or even afro-.”

Wizards York were founded in year 1997 in Vilnius, capitol of Lithuania, as Wizards of Sound. Wizards of Sound were Andrius Muraska, Gediminas Zavistauskas and Adomas Derskus, and operated popularly until 2004 at clubs and in studios. Their studio material was originally breakbeats, drum 'n' bass, and hip hop, and their output was regularly spun on radio stations throughout Lithuania. Reformed in 2011 by Muraska and Derskus as Wizards York, they have released “A2k” as a proclamation that the Wizards have returned.

They write, “The message of this EP is simple. Wizards York are back with their new music and beats, ready to rock the listeners' speakers and headphones! :)”

“A2k” by Wizards York is available online worldwide. Get in early.
