This week’s Crack Mix comes from one of Kraków’s hardest-working selectors.
Olivia also plays a forward-facing role as a resident DJ of Unsound festival, often bookending the programme with sets at night-time hub Szpitalna 1.
Her tenure as head booker at the Szpitalna (where she looked after the books until late 2018 and now hosts the party We Are Radar, the party she has organised with with long-time Kraków associate Chino for seven years) and Unsound’s ever-expanding global network has seen her develop a style that goes both broad and deep – albeit with a particular slant towards techno, electro, and cold wave – and she has also collaborated Chino and Steffen Benneman of Nachtdigital on a pared-down hybrid live-DJ acid project entitled Morskie Oko.
Olivia’s Crack Mix is typical of her approach: a no-frills, dancefloor-centric set packed with simmering acid, Drexciyan electro and EBM – and a hugely enjoyable one at that.
Olivia plays Nachtdigital, Bungalowdorf Olganitz, 2-4 August 2019
