FRESH: ‘Crazy Double Life’ – Different DNA

Different DNA debut with “Crazy Double Life”

Electro-Pop, Synth-Pop

Evgeny Leksikov and Boris Kotelskiy have come together in 2021 to embark on a new musical venture, Different DNA and they kick off with the absolutely superb debut, “Crazy Double Life”.

This is synth-electro-pop at its finest, echoing the pioneers of 80’s synth and electric pop but with a fresh sound and approach to the music and the sublime vocals.

“Crazy Double Life” was recorded in Milano, Saint Petersburg and mastered in Los Angeles. The song has two meanings. When it was created the idea was that it’s about super agent that lives a double life and his/her problems in personal relations. But when the song had been recorded it’s appeared that it’s about ordinary people who lives their double lives and suffer of it. Which is absolutely common nowadays.

Evgeny is young but very professional and experienced singer who took part in Russian TV Shows ”Voice” and “The X Factor”. Boris is a songwriter, founder and creator of the project. At the same time he is a fashion buyer working with the most luxurious brands in the world. Boris was searching for a singer with the same taste in music for quite a long time. Once his friends gave him the contact of Evgeny who was well-known in Russia and in his city. They got in connection and immediately understood they had to start their collaboration. We welcome you!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
