FUCHS2 x ICKPA
The festival of electronic music ICKPA from the team of Georgian techno-club Bassiani was supposed to take place from June 1 to 3 in Kyiv. The Russian army invaded Ukraine and started an illegal war against its civilian population late this February.
With all of us affected by this tragic war, from artists, venue owners, producers, employees, club-goers and people whose friends and families remained in Ukraine - FUCHS2 offers a temporary space for ICKPA’s activities on the safe island of Stvanice.
ANASTASIA KRISTENSEN (DK)
Anastasia Kristensen is a flash of energy. Moscow-born but Denmark-raised, she welds an unwavering dedication to discovering music to the unbridled joy of playing it to people who share the same values and enthusiasm. The once-rising, now-risen star is a whirlwind in the DJ booth, a refreshingly authentic and human presence that makes curious onlookers instant fans and encourages existing ones to dance harder. “I am,” she says, “driven by spreading confidence and fearlessness” – and it shows.
Call-to-action vocals, hi-NRG synth riffs and ten-ton gabber kicks meet rave rinsers, scything electro, booming techno, and even the odd rewind. Kristensen is a poster-child for techno’s lean out of its associated black hole, and into a spectrum of colors, textures, and light. After years of sharpening her reputation as a resident at Culture Box, and in particular Mainstream, one of the city’s few LGBTQ nights, her international tour diary has exploded, taking in small parties and major festivals the world over, making her a magazine cover star who remains driven by connecting communities and elevating fellow music geeks.
POLY CHAIN (UA)
Poly Chain is the project of Sasha Zakrevska – a composer, curator, DJ, designer, and radio host from Kyiv, Ukraine. After school, she continued in a psychedelic rock/shoegaze band named ‘Summer God Teachings’, where she began to explore the world of synthesizers. Today she is a teacher at Module Exchange and SHAPE Platform alumnus.
Aiming to bring a breath of fresh air into the scene, Poly Chain carefully delivers ambient and club-ready textures with a relevant hypnotic electro imprint. Her performances for CXEMA and Unsound Festival pointed out the inner message of her sound, from a meditation perspective to a fractured condition; music is the vessel. The audience remembers her recent split EP with Nene H for Standard Deviation, the multidisciplinary label platform - offspring of ∄.
Udda was born on the north of Ukraine, but recently she was working in Kharkiv as Kultura Zvuka music director and resident DJ. Udda was slated to play this year's ICKPA festival in June.
F2 is working closely with the ICKPA organizers and all artists involved to provide a safe and fair environment for them.
