An On Bast
An On Bast is Anna Suda, producer/musician from Poznan. Participant of the Red Bull Music Academy and Member of City Inside Art Association. After self-realeasing her first experimental album and an idm EP for Rednetic ecordings, she started to experiment with more techno inspired sounds. She released 3 ep for La FOlia/US. In effect, An’s stunning live performances have transformed from meditative experiences into pure dancefloor craziness.
A devotee of melodic beautiful harmonies. Hypnotic, deep, techy and housey sounds dominate her sets, but she will flash a brief and slightl irreverent smile when she changes tempo; if only to remind you why you are out partying. Joana plans her mixes four or five steps ahead like a seasoned chess player leaving the partygoers thirsting for more. Her sets are like a collection of short stories that are compelling in their own right and perhaps appear even disjointed from one to another. But as a sum of their parts they are best appreciated at a higher level after one has heard the entire story.
Her serious and calm demeanor at the decks provides insight to her personality; controlled, calm and cool. A firm believer in continuous positive development Joana has begun the next chapter for her love of music by making her own sound. Undoubtedly, she will choose the path less trodden. She experiments and develops in collaboration with the City Inside Art (CIA) Collective and her friend An On Bast.
