Sha Ru creations are fueled by perpetual motion, spanning techno, breakbeat, dubstep and drum’n’bass. “We’re always moving from place to place; our music equipment is always in the luggage,” says Masha. In 2019, the NYC-via-Berlin couple wrote Near the Equinoxes EP (Sorry Records), a spacious, dubstep-indebted project, and Zer0 (Kindergarten Records). As the pandemic closed in, they moved to Minsk, followed by Kyiv and Tbilisi. Until then, their creative relationship had existed in short, intense bursts. With time to explore a new workflow, they plunged themselves into dark, psychedelic depths. Three split EPs followed: Bernal Sphere (2020), Polychronia (2020) and Ether (2021).
Immersed in the complex reality of everyday life in these countries, Sha Ru released Feel the Future, Belarus! and White Red White, Keep Up The Fight in aid of pro-democracy organizations. Through rhythmic spoken-word in her native Russian, Masha confronts the horrors of state violence over taut, skittering beats. Match My Sway, their debut for Woozy, fundraised for Ukraine’s Kyiv Angels and Repair Together charities. 2022’s V.O.I.D EP was the band’s first fully English-language project; an opportunity to not only experiment with more club-focused sounds, but also personal feelings of overcoming fear. Alongside VA compilations for Pressure Dome, Infinite Machine and Kindergarten, Sha Ru’s new direction is steeped in intimate experiences and narratives.
Bali born and raised — DJ, dancer and drummer, Maira Yamanaka aka Mairakilla is one of the most exciting acts in Bali with her ability to carry a wide range, rapid rhythms and energized bass sets with aesthetic expression — with influence drawn from anime culture and console games. Born as Japanese-Indonesian from a dancer mother and a DJ father, Mairakilla is an artist driven by hardwork and dedication which then leads to her natural and organic versatile talent.
Born and raised in Bandung, Raissa Dwi Febriani or better known as Raissa has started to explore the contemporary dance music scene since her move to Bali in 2018. She continued her exploration of percussive sounds and dance rhythms. In 2021 she debuted her EP titled ‘Durma’ via NON ARCHIVE, followed by her contribution to the “ARSIP 001” Compilation and remix version of ‘Durma’ EP.
Floyd is a pseudonym for Tyara Pradini. A neurodivergent, queer mother who enjoys reading and making mixtapes in their past time. They are one of the person behind some of the underground parties happening in Bali around 2017-2019. Learning how to record songs that played on the radio to a cassette from their uncle early on, the habit grew into making mixtapes in CDs, working in a radio, and now starting over as a DJ after taking a sabbatical to focus on being a mother. Floyd’s sets will take you into a groovy journey, highly influenced but not limited to 90s UK club kids, and Asian-African rhythm.
