His company’s publishing house is Hypnowald from the previous year, which attracted the attention of the Polish journalistic community; and forest rituals stole the hearts of Bartek Chaciński and Jarosław Szczęsny, among others. At the beginning of this year, he released the Occultt ep, which is the darkest and heaviest release in the artist’s output. Apart from that, Jurga is a member of the electronic group Vysoké Čelo and a co-founder of the Opus Elefantum Collective, which performs the role of an independent publisher. Jurga’s musical inspirations can be said to have a lot; in his music he smuggles influences of black metal, heavy drones and forest ambient. His sets are hypnotic, dark and disturbing.
