Vega represent so-called cosmic space synth genre with influences of symphonic and bit operatic music. Most of compositions are dynamic, pompous, majestic and lofty. Obviously, here are also calmer tracks, however even those faster are very relaxing. The material has no weak points, especially as all tunes are hit, catchy and very accessible. This is the stuff for those people who admire electronic virtuosity with touches of Vangelis Papathanassiou, Jean-Michel Jarre, Harold Faltermeyer and guitar playing by Mike Oldfield and Patrick Rondat. With this mind-refreshing work, Oleg Gurtovoy deserved the title of one of the most talented electronic music virtuosos on the globe!
His music is very "logical" and some of it carries that Russian emotional feelings found in the music of the composers of that region. And he has "roots" which certainly go far deeper than just "electro-pop" music.
His sonic approach is very interesting, original and also very "clean".
Also, and though one can feel some of his "influences", the music retains a great sense of originality. The changes and the construction of each piece is logical, though sometimes it can be somewhat "unpredictable", which is very good, because it gives the listener a sense of "knowing" the music, and at the same time "surprise" the listener at some "corners".
Once again, Bravo to Oleg!
