Dasha Redkina
From: RUSSIAN FEDERATION

Dasha focuses her energy on expressing herself, whether it is through music, photography or film. Her DJ sets range between deep and jacking house, to old school and contemporary techno, experimental and ambient, delivered purely on vinyl as she has always remained dedicated to her heavy record bag despite the new trend of digital sound performances.

Her musical path began in late 80s with Dasha playing old Russian tales on vinyl, at the age of 3, on her families old gramophone enticed by the rustling sound of the needle she will always store in her memory. During her teenage hood she went through the typical merry-go-round of music genres- from rock, to hip hop, from classical music to pop. At the age of 16 Dasha set out to conquer Brighton (UK) to discover all its musical enticements. Having to study in a girls’ school in British countryside, as an eastern European girl she could only strive to some fun, so escaping at nights and exploring the party scene in the gay capital Brighton was the necessary contrast to her school days, and fueled her desire to bloom within her interests.

After school came Uni, and she began to study Sound and Film. It was an important mile stone, as she acquired a closer relationship to the technical side of music exploring sound much deeper and learning to manipulate it, create it and apply it. In 2006 for part time work as a student Dasha started working in a record shop after school - a private record store, paying her wage in a form of vinyls, which gave her a music library to immerse in and build her own collection. Loving to spend hours in record shops all around Europe, Dasha gathered a selective range of music. Always listening to current and old, filtering with her taste and refining her ear.

First gigs started in London warehouse parties in 2007 and a year later she was seen to play in Berlin (Watergate), Ibiza (Underground), Barcelona (Sonar festival’08), Valencia (Electrosplach festival), Romania (Sunwaves festival – 2010 & 2011) and in summer 2011 her debut set with Ricardo Villalobos in Kazantip festival (Ukraine) was the recent highlight of her musical endeavours.

Since she returned to live in Moscow in 2011 she became a resident of ARMA17 club , bringing the russian scene what she has gained with the western musical experiences. Her obsession and support for vinyl records has spread to Moscow too. She is leading frequent events (Vinyl Picnic), bringing music experts, lovers, DJs and vinyl collectors who exchange their interests and have a platform to dig, exchange, buy and sell records.

As well as spinning vinyl, she is also a visual artist, having finished Sound&Film course at university, currently working on various film and video projects, collaborating with musicians such as Petre Inspirescu, Soundwalk Collective and Nastya.
