faktor & vektor is a collaboration project of dominator and trut, belgrade based computer+drums duo producing experimental music ranging from drum and bass, jungle and techno all the way to abstract ambient. it is founded in 2005 and to this date have no official releases, although their music is already featured in some movies and tv series, and also in public on various events ranging from dnb to abstract noize, performed and remixed by phase, codex, dominator, kdes and kosmoplovci.

dominator is active in music scene since 1993, producing all kinds of electronic music under various names. he is also a wide known demoscene, music and art activist, being the main person behind corrosion and kosmoplovci groups, involved in numerous projects as music, video, design and programming artist.

trut is best known as being a long time collaborator with serbian musician rambo amadeus, following him and supporting with live drums for most of his carreer, starting back in 1988. he is a bit less known for being a huge music activist, especially supporting and spreading jungle and drum'n'bass scene starting from the early days, but also having an open ear for the experimental side of electronic music. his drumming skills are exceptional and he is widely respected as being one of the best serbian drummers (if not THE best...) but he is also quite open-minded and interested in collaborations that can bring him to situations to develop and create new sounds and ideas by merging best of both analog and digital worlds. this was the point where dominator and trut met and understood each other, and started to make music together as faktor & vektor.

the name of the album 'dolaze teska vremena' means 'hard times are coming', it is not a prophecy it is a fact. however, as dark as it may be, the truth will be ultimatelly be found by brave warriors. faktor & vektor are doing their part in the continuum.

this is faktor & vektor first public release.
you've seen it first on torrentech.



This time we bring you some session-type weird electronic music. This is so serious that you won't get any glimpse of how good it is if you don't listen to it from the beginning to the end. Right now, I keep on asking myself whether I actually need to spend more words on this release, but I will try to. As you can expect anything when you listen to the album, expect anything from me now.

Yeah, the hard times ("teska vremena" in serbian) finally came. Album name translation is: "Hard Times Are Coming". And it's not a joke - hard times are here, that's why this music is so dark, it's the reflection of what's inside. Yeah, this release is kind of epic to me, but don't get too excited if I tell you this... It's just that I am in some kind of time phase with my friend Dominator, this music really suits my mood very well. A display of how sick the music (or life?) can be. Da freaks come out.

Hard times, I guess we just have to live with them, until the time effect kicks in: wounds healed - scars remain, but how gives a shit about the scars? They can even be esthetic and functional too - remind us how stupid and weak we were.
