Janus Christian Skov, is the man behind this project, and is operating from the heart of Manila. His move from Europe to The Philippines was the result of wanting to get away from it all, to find a more “suitable” base and exotic location to settle develop and materialize his current music project, and indeed he found!
It is no coincidence, his music sounds so far out, and original.
His latest release, the ‘Spiritale’ EP is his first release on Avatar, and comes after his fantastic ‘Beyond Our Culture’ from last year. The music of Saint Janus combines elements from progressive rock and progressive psychedelic space rock, while at the same time projects a euphoric relaxed atmosphere with psybient and psychill elements. There are no bombastic melodies here or dramatic entries, just good music, well produced and mature in textures. A fusion of deep relaxed compositions with an array of slow rhythms that cover you gently and carry you away… Janus’s studio production has its own glow. He keeps connected to a line of heavy analog music equipment, combined with selected professional digital applications, which takes his music beyond the scope of limitation and expectations. Until now, he includes under his belt several downbeat releases on Uxmal Records, Iboga Records and Lifted House.
