Dasha Rush is a Russian-born artist who sees the genre as a starting place, not a destination. She combines her activities as a dj and techno producer on her Fullpanda imprint, which founded in 2005, with other multi-artistic collaborations alongside visual artists or dancers. Her album for Raster-Noton ‘Sleepstep’ is a metaphor for her work: dubby but intense, brutal but tender, foggy yet clear - Sleepstep was a wonderful mass of contradictions. Dasha likes to push the boundaries of contemporary dance music to the limit. Her Awakenings and Dekmantel appearances, combined with frequent club appearances at Berghain and Tresor, Berlin; Fabric, London, and other key techno clubs/parties around the world, proofs that she is a fixed value in the techno scene. Sounds like she will fit our line-up perfectly.
