The festival for performance art and border forms of art Sofia Underground will celebrate it's 20th anniversary with a club intervention. In the Wednesday night of the 26th of April the Hunt club will host a party where the selection will be handed to three extraordinary ladies, each of which will showcase different experience and approach towards contemporary techno.
Maybe some of us remember her playing one of the first big parties in Sofia. Yes, twenty years passed since then. Specially invited for the 20th anniversary of Sofia Underground and with the kind support of the Austrian embassy in Sofia, Electric Indigo will return to Bulgaria for an exclusive 3 hour set.
Composer, DJ, musician and a visionary. Definitions that we usually put to men. But in this case we talk about Austrian artist Susanne Kirchmayr, aka Electric Indigo, who has gained legendary reputation as a persistent techno selector. She started playing in her hometown of Vienna back in 89. She released her first record in 93 while she was working at hard wax in Berlin. She has her own label indigo:inc. In 98 she started a network for female artists called female:pressure, which nowadays includes over 1700 artists from all fields of art and music.
Touring the world, but also a guest lecturer at some prestigious art institutions in Vienna, Susanne was awarded with a honorary mention at Ars Electronica in 2009. She appeared at various locations like Wien Modern with a audio-visual performance, or with multi-channel sound installations at CTM Festival, Klangspuren, Dunkle Zeiten.
Despite all that Susanne remains a underground artist with her own distinctive and deep understanding of experimental, deep and textured techno. Her sets are sharp, involving and direct. Fine detail work combined with careful placement in space and time is what can we expect from one techno's finest on a Wednesday night in Sofia.

Y.UNAN (ака JulieWinters) comes from Istanbul, where she works as a DJ since 2004. She also worked as a art director, editor and resident DJ for some alternative spaces and events like Dirty, Suma Beach and Wake Up Call, but she also played at Club Villa and Soju Bar in Berlin. In 2088 she participated the Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona and played the famous Razzmatazz. She is a eclectic selector, but recently she specialises in deep and melodic techno. Specially for Sofia Underground she will present her new 100 minute long audio-visual project warneverchanges where she collaborates with visual artist Random Input.
Support: Snezhana (BG)
Snezhana will take care for the proper warm up introduction from the Bulgarian side. Some may know her from the legendary Vlaikova bar. Some have read her now defunct Beatbucket blog and Easterndaze features about contemporary sound she likes. Today she randomly plays at private venues and co-runs the Sunday Relief matinees at craft-beer bar Kanaal. Her podcast for Бетон and the music she selects speak clearly why she was invited to open this party.
