Olga prefers monochrome colors and cold synthetic sounds. She likes when music is dark and desperate but it makes sense to her only if it’s dance music. Born and raised in Moscow she found her inner peace (and intense synth scene) in the heart of Södermalm. Her favorite things to do are taking photos, going to gigs and watching her favourite football team winning. She says: “A lot of music that I like is written decades ago but currently the best one is done within 5K radius around my house”. You’ll surely lose yourself dancing to the mix of old and new synth sounds she will bring you. 🖤
