Originally hailing from Bucharest, Borusiade has only two official releases to her name but already stands as an exemplar of the breadth of skill emanating from the Romanian capital.
Currently residing in Berlin, Borusiade channels various strands of EBM and minimal wave into tracks bristling with portent. Her two EPs- Jeopardy and Feelings of Entropy, released on Cómeme and Correspondant respectively- have both been praised for the cinematic quality, with her liberal use of dread-laden synths drawing comparisons to John Carpenter and Oliver Ho in equal measure.
Alongside her studio work Borusiade also hosts a regular show on Radio Cómeme entitled The Dreamcatcher which she describes as a “sonic film series rather than some regular DJ mix”. Her Crack Mix is imbued with a similarly atmospheric affair, with mechanistic cuts from Khidja and Gesloten Cirkel contributing to an urgent, claustrophobic feel- a bracing listen from an exceptionally skilled selector.
