Born Hovhannes Sargsyan, D.zúk (”dzook” = ”fish”) is a Yerevan-based producer influenced by the delicate qualities of nature, juxtaposed against the concrete imprint of human existence. His debut, Ishkhan (“eesh khan” =“prince”; also refers to an endemic trout found in Lake Sevan) is a pensive journey through ethereal, underwater landscapes. Aquatic adventures between house, downtempo, bass and ambiance.

Bandcamp comments:
khemet - "Glad to have stumbled across this gem. Loving the cultural vibrations especially enjoy the tune "Anush." Thank you for sharing your creativity."

Seva - "This album is absolutely mindblowing. There is a flow here, a journey that it takes you on, track by track, requiring you to focus and live in it. I haven't listened to anything quite this impactful in a long time. Reverse is like a mini encapsulation of the concept - it's a world in a song, shifting moods and atmospheres as it goes. Not enough superlatives to describe this. Favorite track: Reverse."
