More: Dasha Rush has proved her audiovisual acumen, and a poetic bent for environmental science and physics in the abstract atmospheres of screen projects like Antarctic Takt and Dark Hearts of Space.
Mysterious, intense and created for the fervour of live performance, LADA combines the Berlin underground techno chops of Dasha Rush and Lars Hemmerling: a culmination of the artists' extolled talents and a search for dance music's missing elements, fusing echoing vocals, radio transmissions and synthetic glitches, off-kilter beats and pummelling rhythms.
