Nastia’s ascendency to her current status has been nothing short of an unexpected whirlwind of success. The DJ, promoter, label owner and producer was born in a tiny village in Ukraine, and forged her own path to widespread recognition out of her sheer love for music without any formal training.
She became one of the most well-known DJs of her home country, and landed a residency at the legendary Moscow club ARMA17 that she holds to this day. She founded the Propaganda brand in 2010 for her radio show, and in 2013 she was well placed to begin her own record label of the same name. The label has been steadily releasing a stream of credible but diverse productions ever since, coming from Nastia’s favourite new artists that she discovers on her travels and whilst crate digging.
The label also hosts parties around Europe, further adding to Nastia’s reputation as a promoter. She now holds her own festival in Kiev, Strichka. Held at Closer – an art space based in a former factory and running for 24 hours straight, this year’s edition saw artists like JusEd, Helena Hauff, DJ Bone, DJ Stingray, Margaret Dygas and Pearson Sound travel to play alongside Nastia and many other local talents. She also debuted the first of her Stereo Piknik events in London this year, bringing DJ Qu, Tobias, Pearson Sound, Function and more to the city.
Outside of her own parties, Nastia’s increasingly busy touring schedule takes her to some of the most respected venues in the world: Panorama Bar in Berlin, London’s fabric (where she has played alongside Ricardo Villalobos and with Richie Hawtin for his Play party), The Block in Tel Aviv, WOMB in Tokyo and Cocoon and Circoloco in Ibiza. With her reputation growing, she is now gearing up for her debut Australia tour at the end of this year. A multitalented DJ and expert at reading crowds, Nastia can play industrial techno, experimental, house or DnB depending on the situation, but at the end of the day, her main goal is to make the crowd dance along with her as she did at her first club in Donetsk.
