Nastia
From: UKRAINE

Already one of the best-known eastern European techno/house DJs, Nastia’s star is firmly in the ascendancy globally. Her style is to an extent adaptable but she has a sound that is unmistakably her own. The last three years have been a whirlwind of gigs for Nastia. Her twilight techno, melancholic minimal, stripped-down ghetto funk and sustained house have been wowing crowds all around the world. She’s recently signed to the prestigious agency Bullitt DJ so her travellings are going to be even further afield every week.

Nastia Topolskaia started going to clubs when she was just 13 years-old. “I am originally from a small village in Ukraine of just 1000 people,” she says. “Every weekend I took a bus to the nearest big city and I realized that I really liked clubs and parties!” She started DJing in 2005 and in summer 2006 ended up playing at the legendary KaZantip music festival which made her name famous. “It was the first serious music event in my life”- she smiles.

Nastia quickly won the hearts of Kazantip people having become the most popular Dj of Z-republic. Being the manager of Kiss Fm stage she did all the bookings and events. She’s had a regular radio-show PROPAGANDA on popular ukrainian radio station Kiss Fm Ukraine for more than five years. Here she plays impeccably mixed live sets playing tracks from fresh and noteworthy releases. Besides she bravely experiments with electronica, ambient and drum'n'bass styles on air.

Also Nastia works on new “He & She” project which told the world about itself with the first release on the label Musik Gewinnt Freunde with Kollektive Turmstrasse’s remix. “He & She” is the result of collaboration with Alexander Pavlenko (Sunchase). “I knew Alex as the best electronic sound producer in Ukraine, and I offered him to work together.” - says Nastia. “As “He & She” we create deep and tuneful music. I am the best from my side, he is the best from his side, so we’re just a perfect team.”

Nastia has been able to combine production process with dj-gigs. One place she always comes back to is Arma17 – Russia’s coolest club – where she is a resident DJ. “Arma17 is a VERY special place,” she grins. “For me, it is the only place which I can call my ‘second home’.” She sings the praises of the Arma17 crew, their nightlife vision, their after-parties, and their often experimental or risky music programming.

Addicted to the energy she gets from DJing and all-time travelling, Nastia says she ultimately strives for visiting every country in the world with her music. “I want to play music as much as I can,” she says, “sharing my energy and music taste with people.”
