about

Kedr Livanskiy’s second album, Your Need, is a celebration of life and rebirth. It’s about a fighter’s spirit, and if you will, a little audacity and courage. DJ’ing and early forms of dance music inspired a furious burst of creative energy after months of melancholy, sadness and reflection to record the album in only a matter of weeks.

After her first album, Ariadna, Kedr felt lost with her identity and was searching for the direction of her next chapter. For a while she felt trapped by her own image and needed quite some time to resolve this internal dissonance – to grow, to evolve.

DJ’ing was the main catalyst to pull her out of this rut. The art form shifted her inspiration to mainly old school styles of dance music: ghetto, house, breakbeat and UK garage. For the prior year and a half she was listening to ambient, kraut-rock and more experimental genres – one can hear the brighter, more energetic influence of early electronic music in the songs on Your Need versus Ariadna.

One day she was talking with her friend Flaty (Zhenya), a very talented artist from St. Petersburg who’s signed to the GOST ZVUK label, and they decided to do a single together. He came to visit her in Moscow, but they ended up spending 10 whole days writing music together, from dawn to dusk.

They vibed off each other’s musical ideas perfectly and understood each other even without speaking. Zhenya is a beatmaster and pays attention to even the smallest details of a track. He brought incredible richness to the composition and Kedr considers him her teacher in this area. Kedr was in charge of the melodies and vibe of the tracks, and the vocal elements.

Your Need is like a chapter of life. It’s a story that illustrates different scenarios and moods that our mythical hero experiences, living in an urban jungle. From lost love to a bad trip on the dancefloor, from euphoria to deep introspection. Our hero sometimes feels bold, lost or devastated, but also tender and full, like all of us at some point in life. The ending is joyful and bright. The last song gives hope and faith that a new day will come and wash away the old. You can feel like new every day.

Your Need reflects an array of genres and a mix of cultures -- a harmonious combination of differences. Everything Kedr loves about ghetto music, in the traditions of house, dub, breakbeat, 90s electronic music and modern sounds – she’s embraced and expressed it all throughout. Your Need is Kedr’s ode to music from different eras and changing periods.

Track Name: Your Need (твоя беда)
Lyrics (Russian first, English translation below):
я твоя беда (loop)

English:
I’m your need (loop)
Track Name: Sky Kisses (на танцполе)
Lyrics (Russian first, English translation below):
целовались в небесах , мы в таинственных лесах (3)

эти ласковые сети, мы запутались как дети (2)
и никто бы не заметил

в этих ласковых оковах обгоревших на танцполе (3)
на танцполе, на танцполе , на та на та нцполе

целовались в небесах , мы в таинственных лесах (3)

ты устала, я устал, (3)


English:
Kissing in the sky, we’re in mysterious forests (3x)
In these gentle nets, we got tangled like children
And no one would’ve noticed

In these sweet shackles
That have burned on the dancefloor (3x)

Kissing in the sky, we’re in mysterious forests (3x)

You’re tired, I’m tired (3x)
Track Name: Why Love (зачем любовь)
Lyrics (Russian first, English translation below):
не обижайте
не обижайте
не обижайте
девчоночечек)))) ( 3 )

любит не любит, девчонку погубит
хочет не хочет, да кто его спросит
бросит не бросит, да кто его знает,
зачем же девчонка за это страдает?

Так важно открыться , но страшно разбиться, в 17 лет потерять себя и не найти ответ

девчонка дрожит под холодным дождем , луна отражается в луже огнем
девчонка не хочет, девчонка не знает, зачем же её тот пацан обижает

любит не любит, девчонку погубит
хочет не хочет, да кто его спросит
бросит не бросит, да кто его знает,
зачем же девчонка за это страдает?

зачем любовь? (4)

English:
Don’t go breaking
Don’t go breaking
Don’t go breaking
Any girls’ hearts (3x)

He loves me, he loves me not
Will ruin a girl
He wants me, he wants me not
Who will ask him?
He’ll leave me, he’ll leave me not
Why bother?
Why lose sleep over this, girl?

You have to open up
But you’re scared to get hurt
To lose yourself at 17
And not find the answers

A girl shivers in the cold rain
The moon’s fiery reflection in a puddle
She doesn’t want
She doesn’t know
Why this guy does her wrong
Track Name: Kiska (киска)
LYRICS (Russian first then English transaltion):
два по девять, два по сто
киска сядет на лицо (loop)

English:
Two by nine, two by a hunna
Pussy gonna show ya (loop)
Track Name: Your Need (Deep Mix) (не должен)
Lyrics (Russian first, English translation below):
ей взгляд такой опасный
никому не должен

тебя она загонит в краску
никому не должен

English:
Her gaze is so dangerous
(you) owe nothing to anybody

She’ll make you blush
(you) owe nothing to anybody

(Loops)
Track Name: LED (лёд)
Lyrics (Russian first, English translation below):
Помнится было так хорошо
Солнце дарило нам своё тепло
Где же было наше горе тогда
За горами любви то было вечером

на ступила ночь наступил холод
Между нами снова (вырос)какой то лёд
Не растает он даже от самых сильных лучей
Этой вселенской звезды

Солнце больше не растопит наш лёд
Солнце не растопит даже наш лед
Солнце не растопит наш лёд

Отсудила право быть одной без тебя
Немаловажно , так отважно
Было эти слова сказать тебе
Я не люблю тебя больше
Я не люблю тебя больше

English:
I remember it used to be so good
The sun shined its warmth on us
Where was our grief then
Behind mountains of love at night

Night descended
The cold came in
And between us, ice
Not even the strongest rays
Of this celestial star
Can melt it

The sun won’t melt our ice
The sun won’t melt our ice
The sun won’t melt our ice

Got back my right to be alone without you
It was important
To bravely say
These words to you
I don’t love you anymore
I don’t love you anymore

Ohhhohhhh

I let my hair down early spring
Tried to read the river
By the fast wave’s current
I’m tired of waiting for you
To come with your heart in your hands

It was all a lie
I shouldn’t have believed
Why did I wait a year
Crying
Only crying

You got lost, sick, late, didn’t have time
You lost, you’ve lost me now

So hard for me to say these words
I don’t love you and that’s forever
Try to understand
I don’t love you
I don’t love you
And that’s forever
Track Name: City Track
Lyrics (Russian first, English translation below):
Набираю высоту солнце дарит красоту (2)
Городские коридоры
Машины светофоры

Закат наступает я кажется таю
Вопросы ответы мы слишком одеты
Дома засыпают я тоже бывает
Стесняюсь и маюсь от тебя закрываюсь

English:
I go higher and higher
The sun lends beauty
City corridors
Cars and streetlights

Twilight comes, I seem to melt
Questions, answers, we’ve got too much on
Houses fall asleep
Sometimes I get nervous and pine away
I close myself off from you

(I dial your number (loop))
Track Name: Ivan Kupala (New Day) (Иван купала)
Lyrics (Russian first, English translation below):
Знаешь боль никогда не пройдёт до конца , но в твоей груди ветер живет
Как сотни тех, кто мечтал , летел , горел
Ты тоже сможешь войти в новый день

English:
You know
The pain won’t ever fully
Go away
But the wind lives
In your chest
Like hundreds before
Who dreamed of flying,
Got burned,
You also can
See a new day
