Озоновый коктейль

The Ozone Cocktail arose in Moscow in 2000 year. In that time there were only two members in the band: Marina Makarova ( Music, Lyrics, Vocal, Keys, Back-Vocal) and Michael Sokolovskiy (Music, Programming, Guitar, Accordion). They decided to make lyrics in English, which seemed to be more organic for their music. However, there are lots of songs in their native tongue on their first album “The Land of Tornado”, “Citadel
records”. Unfortunately “The Land of Tornado” was not really popular in Russia and musicians decided to make the next album for Europe and to release it there. In 2003 Kirill Trepakov (“Expedition Zero”) joined the band at first as a sound producer, later – as a bass guitarist. The first European release took place on “Black Coffee. Vol.6” (“Echo Chamber”, Vienna) in 2003. In 2004 the “Magnetic” album came out in Paris.
“Magnetic has really nice sound, which was really appreciated in the world. The music is also very individual and for sure it stands out against the crowd of the other bands. During the recording the band had prepared the concert program and gave a spectacular performance on prestigious festival in Monaco - “The days of Saint Petersburg”. The “Magnetic” album has a glowing review from the European and American’s press. The most of the songs were translated on popular radio station in all over the world. The clip, which has been shoot in Paris, is also in rotation in the world. It is possible to see it even on Russian channel “Stolitca” nowadays. During the next visit in Paris in February 2006 the band gave a radio interview for American broadcasting department, for BBC. The program with Ozone Cocktail is easy to find in the internet on the BBC’s official web site. The “Magnetic” was published in Russia by “Soyuz” company in 2005. It has some difference from the firs publishing. Apart from “April, 31” in Russian (By the way, this song was very popular in America and was loved by BBC very much), there are two tracks in their Russian versions: “Night Walk” (“Nochnaya Progulka”) and “Jump Into The Sky” (Prighok V Nebo).
The album “Anything may come” can be described as an electro-acoustic neo-romantic album with incrustation of jazz and ethnic (for most Latin-American ethnic). Gorgeous softly enveloping sound, original arrangements with incredibly charming vocal and exquisitely bewitching melodies – those are what create the unique sound of “Ozone Cocktail”. All in all, the music style of the band is getting stricter and more recognisable in comparing with the previous album, though eclectic notes seem to be increased. There are soft funk, Latin-house, dub, electric bosa-nova and so on. The album was assisted by Pavel Khotin, keyboards (ex “Sounds Mu”, “MD&C Pavlov”, “Nikolay Kopernik”).  For this time, Russian people will be able to listen to the new album earlier, than in the other world.
In december 2009 brand new album by "Ozone cocktail".
