Version 22

Андрей Лысиков (born in 1971), best known as Dolphin, began his solo-career in 1996 after his initial departure from the well-known Russian pop-hip-hop trio Мальчишник. On the first two albums, 1997’s Не в фокусе (‘Out Of Focus’) and 1999’s Глубина резкости (‘Depth Of Field’) he presents a kind of experimental hip-hop, being close to his previous band’s music, but, not alike that, the prevailing mood is depressive as the lyrics are dedicated to drugs and personal self-release troubles. Nonetheless, on more recent stuff rap fades into background while more clean vocals, guitars and synths are brought to the forefront. If you’re looking for parallels - put yourself between Trent Reznor and Saul Williams (not just musically, but maybe more lyrically).
Dolphin’s passion for experimentalism has been providing a great success for himself. His music is unpredictable, innovative and just wonderfully done, and on his late full-length Звезда (‘The Star’) he undeniably delivers.
