We have something really special – new Galus‘ EP on U Know Me Records – “Flowers Eats Animals” EP [UKM 037].
After quite a long break, the artist behind one of the biggest bestsellers in U Know Me Records’ history is back. His previous album Futura sold out swiftly, and listeners’ appetite for new music from Galus (aka Rafał Gałaszewski) has been enormous.
Flowers Eats Animals is a remarkable record in many respects, and the artist himself describes it so:
“The idea for the album came about in my mind around 2011. I got to the point where I didn’t really know what kind of music I wanted to make, but I also knew that I didn’t want to repeat the ideas that I had already recorded. I wanted this material to contain the entire cross-section of music that has always inspired me – electro-acoustic music, experimental music from the 60s, as well as the fusion of jazz, electronic music, and progressive rock. Deciding on the instrumentation for the recordings, and the final sound I wanted to achieve, was what took the longest. The original version of this record was recorded in late 2012, but it didn’t stand the test of time and only a sketch of one track survived and was further developed for this record. The original plan was for this record to be a full-length album, but it turned out that four tracks, and the format of an EP, ideally suited the themes I wanted to explore and conveys the direction in which I’m developing my music.”
Five musicians joined Galus in recording the music for this record, including Elżbieta Baklarz, Dominika Gałązka, Marcel Mrozowski, Marek Pędziwiatr, and Wojciech Sobura.
Flowers Eat Animals was mastered by Mikołaj “Noon” Bugajak from the audio-games.pl studio. He described the EP:
It’s a great pleasure to hear original music that doesn’t follow any trends, but is the result of personal explorations. This is something that is truly lacking in our country.
Let’s not forget the graphic design, which in this case was created by Przemek “Sainer” Blejzyk from Etam Crew. We have good news for his fans as well – each vinyl record will include a poster of the EP’s cover artwork.

“No Sleep Till Kraków” is a new videoclip which promotes Daniel Drumz‘ debut album “Untold Stories” 2LP.
Fifteen years in the game, countless shows in hundreds of clubs, a massive vinyl collection, numerous musical guest appearances, a handful of cult mixtapes, and two EPs – it’s all quite an achievement for an artist who is only just releasing his debut album.
The man in question is Daniel Drumz, an artist who has spent his career dissecting the sound of hip-hop, jazz, disco, UK garage, broken beat, house, and techno, building sets and producing tracks that furiously steer clear of being pigeonholed into a single sound.
Untold Stories [UKM 036] will arrive as a double vinyl, with visual design by Animisiewasz Startt and featuring the cover artwork of street artist Nawer. The album has combined Daniel’s diverse inspirations, his vast experience, and his unique familiarity with the club scene, resulting in an strikingly mature release. It’s an album that will pique the interest of both hardened clubbers and those simply looking for a compelling listen.
“It was a long journey. In the meantime, many things have been omitted or unspoken, and in this album I’ve tried to tell some of these untold stories from my own perspective.”
As is befitting for a fully-fledged LP debut, the album has no featured guest artists. What can be heard is an amalgam of analog synthesizers and vinyl samples. The uniquely warm sound of Untold Stories can also be credited to Mikołaj “Noon” Bugajak, who was responsible for the fully analog mastering of the album. Even the vinyl was pressed at 45 RPM ensuring the highest quality of sound.
As usual, the album will be sold as a limited edition release with special attention paid towards the visual side of the project. This will be the 26th vinyl release from Poland’s home to analog electronic music – U Know Me Records.
Promomix of the album:
