The cinematic aspect doesn’t end with the music, either. The PYLOT project is deeply rooted in a narrative format, with each new release accompanied by artwork by Mike Yakovlev as well as episodic stories that listeners can enjoy on the artist’s website.
After releasing an initial series of singles, PYLOT unveiled his debut EP Shadowtask in 2017 with the independent Canadian label, Monstercat. The five-track release was an unqualified success, gaining millions of streams and attracting a large fanbase in the process. A series of independently released singles followed, this time with an even more exploratory mindset. At the start of 2019, PYLOT signed with the well respected Synthwave label, FiXT Neon.
