Protassov's musical output is an unrestrained balancing act. He believes in the power of magic and you could never nail him down to one musical genre. Porno soundtrack organs are dancing shameless with a folk guitar. metallic industrial noises caress disco balls without suspecting the threatening showdown lurking just around the corner.
Protassovs Music is funky and sometimes filled with exotic clichés – but always with a twinkle in ones eye. After playing guitar in several bands since the early nineties, he concentrates on making beats for Switchstance Recordings for a couple of years now.
His artistical work, besides the music he released on Switchstance Recordings Fantastic Freeriding Series, includes a Solo Album (Shalina Music 2008), Remixes for fellow musicians like Jugoe (Bastard Jazz) or labelmates Ancient Astronauts (ESL) and the „Where we live“e.p. (2009)
His latest release „Did you ride the Moneytrain“, a three tracker out on Switchstance Recordings, prooves once again that Protassov is unpredictable: From Reggae riddims to Pop music Vibes his narrative style invites the listener to a musical universe filled with mental freedom and fantastic projections, held together by our Love and a strong believe in the beauty of every creatures mind.
