Gardens of God – Ys EP

Gardens of God

Breaking into the deep house scene with an air of mystery and backed by the growing prestige of Maceo Plex’s Ellum imprint, Gardens of God has produced a stunning debut EP called “Ys” that’s due for release in February.

Although his name is just starting to attract attention, it’s clear from the preview of his three-track EP that Mindaugas Lapinskis – aka Gardens of God – is an adept and practiced artist with more than a few tricks up his synthesizer.

The EP comes together in dramatic, cohesive synergy with atmospheric melodies, soulful vocals and pulsating basslines that Maceo Plex describes as “spooky sexy stuff.” Named for the mythical city of Breton that was swallowed by the ocean, “Ys” is certainly an expression of fantastic proportions.

“Are We” is quite possibly the standout track of the three. Featuring the amorous voice of Egle Sirvydyte, it has the same deep, dark and mesmerizing flavor as fellow Lithuanian Ten Walls’ “Gotham”, with great potential to be just as celebrated.

The title track “Ys” capitalizes on the powerful combination of undulating horns and chords, while “Apnea” rounds out the brooding mood with high strings and a dancefloor groove.

In the words of the man himself:

“Every track has its mood, mystic places and secrets.
It’s like a garden with its own spirits and souls. 
Every track is like a garden of God.”
