Nastia‘s NECHTO records is putting on a fundraising party for Ukraine in NYC this summer. Taking place at the city’s Knockdown Center on July 1st, 2022, the rave marks the label’s first international event and features a raft of Ukrainian artists, including Nastya Muravyova, Noizar, Bejenec (live), Voin Oruwu (live), and Nastia herself.
Established in 2019, the techno-focussed NECHTO has become a label and platform championing both international and Ukrainian artists. The label’s first release in December 2019 was a four-track EP NECH001 by an unknown artist. In 2020 and 2021, they held a series of big parties in Kyiv which drew thousands of revelers.
“While the brave Ukrainian nation is showing tremendous will and courage in their fight against occupants, the duty of the whole world and each of us is to show unity, support, and solidarity,” wrote NECHTO on Instagram.
Last month, Nastia delivered a candid keynote interview at this year’s International Music Summit in Ibiza about Russia’s war on Ukraine. She’s currently making a documentary about the war.
