Radio: Kirsti / Arkada Podcast 011
♪ ♥‿♥ ♪ After living the life for many years, Kirsti has quietly become a real authority when it comes to electro and techno. As unassuming in person as her DJ sets are immediately arresting, she mixes up those sounds with elements of UK rave music to create dynamic, non linear sets of raw electronics.
Tracing her lineage from early experiences at raves like Checkpoint Charlie and Bangface, she soon went on to take great influence from the key figures behind UK rave, techno and electro such as Jerome Hill, Andrea Parker, Luke Vibert, Rob Hall and Warlock. She still does today, and isn’t afraid to play uncompromising sets that speak to the real underground. These come on her null+void radio shows—firstly on Rinse FM, now on KMAH they’re noted for their premiers of the freshest new techno and electro sounds.
Having recently warmed up for the legendary Dopplereffekt at Oval Space, Kirsti has also played at Tantrum, Craig Richards’ electro and left of centre night at the Lion & Lamb and stage at Houghton Festival. She’s also landed spots playing for Krake Festival in Berlin and on the warm up at fabric which are up on her list of gig highlights.
Preferring to really take the crowd to bold new places, Kirsti does the same with her null+void label. It’s a place where the likes of Shinra and L-R serve up slippery future electro and space age techno that ranges from striking to sublime. null+void continues to take shape with a step up in the release schedule planned for 2018 and continued support from the likes of Stingray, Bicep, Craig Richards, Objekt and Jerome Hill.
