Anastasia Kristensen: The Moscow born- Copenhagen based DJ and music producer has been rising the ranks rapidly since the past few years for her revitalizing take on booming techno. It was her formal training in ballet that increased her curiosity for the arts and aided in developing a deeper sense of harmony and melody. A regular DJ at Copenhagen’s Culture Box and the queer party Mainstream, she has performed extensively through North America and across Europe. The whizz kid for techno, she believes her sets ought to have a narrative to make the crowd go wild.
