Never one to conform, Hibernate (Joseph Borg) always finds a way to evade artistic boredom and introduce us to new sounds and concepts. “Lux Tua” is a progressive opera masterpiece featuring the vocals of Victoria Gydov, who wrote the song’s lyrics in Latin. The unusual musical collaboration yielded a phenomenon of a song that just may belong more in a time capsule than a dance floor. Emotionally, the composition hurls the listener into a paradoxical whirlpool of extreme loss and hope for the future. Victoria expressed the following in her own lyrics:

“We all experience dark periods, feelings and circumstances at some point in our lives, and it is about not giving up, but trying to reach outside of ourselves toward something that gives us hope to keep going, keep believing, keep dreaming.”

Hibernate, who is an enthusiast of classical music, composed the music and main theme of the song after an extensive listening binge on the music of Vivaldi, Mozart, Bach, and Samuel Barber. He instantly thought of Victoria when the melody surged into his head. Victoria – who studied operatic voice formally and has appeared in many opera productions – was eager as usual to work with the producer and delivered the lyrics and vocals shockingly quick.

“It is totally amazing how fast she works, and how good her voice always sounds. Few producers in my kind of music ever get the chance to work with a vocalist of this caliber. She is truly my secret musical weapon.”

The official music video for Lux Tua was filmed and edited by the multi-talented Jordon F., who when is not producing EDM enjoys making music videos ‘just for fun’. Much of the filming was done inside a gorgeous church named La Salle Historic Church, located in Southern Ontario, and features the beautiful Gydov in stunning and elaborate Victorian costume attire.

John Alto

“The track was inspired by the blending of two different music styles, with the heavier bass line and club rhythm, with the euphoric atmosphere with grand and epic melodies, perfect for anthems and large stages. The vocals play a massive part in the completion of the track, with some ear-catching lyrics that are great to sing along to. The song is about a relationship, metaphorically explained through driving at night.” — Snavs & John Alto

Sem Thomasson
“We really wanted to create something that would work production-wise in both a club and for home listening. It’s a deep track that still has these light elements to it, the topline expressing something that is quite moving and relatable, yet the progressive and higher BPM beats across the second half make it something that – we hope – the partiers will love too.” —
