Why are you excited to be a part of Budapest Showcase Hub?
I am really interested in fresh and young showcases and conferences in general, BUSH seems to be one of the most promising around.
What can people expect from appearance?
Me and my Russian colleagues are bringing the idea of new Russian scene to masses, and know how to promote it well, also i started a record pressing company – Semikols , it’s in Riga, Latvia, and already got a lot of attention, I can answer all the typical questions about vinyl pressing.
For BUSH-goers not familiar with you yet, what should they know about you?
I run a Moscow based venue called Powerhouse Moscow, it’s around for 4 years and have gigs 7 days a week, also it has a music studio and record local artists and do international residences. Beside Powerhouse I manage program in a pop-up venue named Pluton and press records on record plant I run in Riga. Also I run two labels – one called Wait!What? Records, and other is connected to our Powerhouse Studio.
Aside from your presenting your company, what else would you like to do during Budapest Showcase Hub 2017?
To meet my friends from different parts of globe, and to spend some time in a city i really like – Budapest.
