For this special edition, the legendary German studio Pauler Acoustics has prepared a completely new mastering of the album and an optimal track order for the vinyl sound.

The album will be pressed using DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) technology, which is cut directly into copper. The pressing will be handled by Polvinyl, combining the German crew's experience with superb Neumann and Toolex Alpha machinery resources.

The result is not only a unique release that will delight vinyl collectors, but also a superb sound that will satisfy connoisseurs of jazz, electronica and world music.

For fans of the highest digital quality, we also prepared Goldenblack Digital Vinyl™ in collaboration with Pauler Acoustics. The digital version of the album has been transferred directly from DMM to digital file using an EMT Pure Black cartridge (cartridge of the year in 2021) mounted on an EMT 929 tonearm, EMT JPA 66 phono stage and LAVRY AD 122-96 MX analog/digital converter.

Discover great sound.

Vinyl I


"The clash between the jazzy, pop and classical elements with the deep folk material. Imaginative arrangements bring out the strong traditional melodies. Illustration of the adventurous music coming out of Eastern Europe."

Peter Culshaw

Songlines Music Travel (UK)


“This is an extremely innovative album - there are recordings of both traditional songs from different parts of the country and Lemko folk songs, but also a song recorded in Chinese with the North Lab band. There is a meeting with extraordinary musicians: Hassibagen from Mongolia and Aiys Song from China. Everything indecently sublime and served in such a way that I feel excitement at the very thought of putting the CD into the player.”

Ewa Kuba



“It’s a hard one to describe or sum up, which is A Good Thing. By turns anthemic, liquid pianistic, violin-sweeping, soft-voiced, strident hard-voiced, rock and that’s just the first track. Onward into scatting, the heavenly choir, electronic swoops and warbles, systems patterns, chugging cello, jazz-rock, big brass shots, cheery whistling over growling khoomei, hefty rock, tense drone serenity, beaty poppiness, ending in a velvety melismatic a cappella rendering of a wesnianka, a spring song. There’s never been a treatment of Polish and Ukrainian traditional music like it.”

Andrew Cronshaw

Roots Magazine (UK)


In the 2016 Transglobal World Music Charts,

the disc was ranked among the top 40 albums in the world.


About the band


The Dagadana band has been brilliantly combining elements of Ukrainian and Polish culture through jazz, electronica or world music for fifteen years. It was founded in 2008 by Daga Gregorowicz (Poland) and Dana Vynnytska (Ukraine). Today, Dagadana is already a quartet, sometimes expanding to include a brass section and even a symphony orchestra.

Dagadana was the only band from Poland and Ukraine to play at one of the world's biggest music festivals in 2019 - the legendary Glastonbury Festival in the UK. Among others, the American National Geographic wrote about it. The group has toured in more than 30 countries, including the largest festival in South America and a number of tours in China. Dagadana has so far played on a raft, in a mine and even in the desert.

It is a vinyl record that comes with a Digital Authenticity Certificate, into which we have poured all our passion for sound quality. We have teamed up with masters of vinyl mastering, DMM master cutting and pressing to capture all the beauty of the music created by artists and producers in the studio. This is vinyl at its finest in both audio and print quality, additionally combined with modern technology such as blockchain, which allows for unprecedented possibilities in collecting.


A Digital Authenticity Certificate is more than just a certificate that your disc is genuine. It is an NFT token encoded in a secure and inviolable data registry using blockchain technology. It is inextricably linked to your vinyl, it also certifies that your record number is actually the one that came out of the pressing machine in that order (my number 1 is really number 1 and not just the number on the box). The Digital Authenticity Certificate is also an acknowledgement of your involvement in the project. For example, it certifies how long you have been a fan and listened to a particular band (now you finally have proof that you "listened to them before they were famous"). It's also a PDF that you can download and print, where you'll find the CCA number encoded in the blockchain network and all the metadata you need about the release, band, production, mastering, master preparation, pressing and production sequence with production date and time.

What is a Digital Authenticity Certificate?


It is a digital recording that is ripped directly from the DMM master in the studio where the matrices are cut. An extremely sensitive and precise needle, connected to the highest quality audio equipment, follows the diamond cutting knife directly during the ripping process. The result is an audio recording that is unaffected by any subsequent processing (such as plating or pressing).

A novelty in the world of digital files is the use of blockchain technology and the NFT solution based on it. This allows you to own a digital file in the same way you own a vinyl record. But that's not all - if you pre-order GOLDENBLACK DIGITAL VINYL™, your cryptocurrency wallet address will be stored in this file, proving once and for all that you were the first to buy it.

What is The Simples Music: Dagadana?

It is a collection of famous digital stickers created by Konrad Kirpluk especially for the Meridian 68 album, which are also NFT tokens.

Konrad Kirpluk has been creating The Simples since 2013 and has worked with such world-famous brands as Nike, FootLocker and Blizzard - making his work very popular and in demand in the Web3 world.

When will I receive my Digital Authenticity Certificate?

If we have your cryptocurrency wallet address, you will receive the certificate on the release date: 20 October.

I don't have a wallet address, how can I get one?

You have two options: see instructions for setting up and installing a cryptocurrency wallet here, or sign up for a free webinar, and together with Jack Kolodziejczak of OpenArt Studio, we will show you how to do it step-by-step live.

Why should I try to get a cryptocurrency wallet?

A cryptocurrency wallet will be useful for you to deposit your Digital Certificate of Authenticity on it, but not only. Collecting digital goods - including songs and albums - is becoming increasingly common. With such a wallet, you can own music files and you can dispose of them on the secondary market. A cryptocurrency wallet and the assets it holds can also be the key to acquiring new, special content.

When I sell a Digital Certificate of Authenticity on the secondary market, do I have to give away the vinyl?

Yes. Remember that your vinyl is inextricably linked to the CCA. After you sell your vinyl with CCA, don't forget to send the vinyl to the address indicated. Also remember to add shipping costs to the sale price.
