Those of you who are familiar with the sounds of Vlad Caia, will know why we were incredibly excited at MEOKO HQ when we had his name up next on the list of artists for Music Through Pictures. With an output of incredible beats, ranging from punchy minimal hooks to warped and experimental soundscapes, Vlad is truly a passionate musican and we couldn't wait to see what the artist would give us. For those of you who don’t know, take a moment to view what is, as expected, one of the most interesting responses to the series yet. This week, we delve a little deeper into the vast and varied rabbit hole of musical knowledge and inspiration that makes Vlad Caia tick…
