Nisantashi Primary School are Vlad, Lucy and Mykhaylo from Kiev. Their debut EP is a mix of snappy and moody synth sounds, vintage-tinged bass lines and gritty rhythms.
The selection of tracks is a showcase of moods and influences: from the feverish and psychedelic “Mr. Fingers” with FumaÃ§a Preta’s Alex Figueira on drums, to the nocturnal dancefloor gem â€œHillsâ€. Hints of dance records from 80â€™s NYC, synth-based disco and krautrock come through, but an eastern european immediacy and faux-dÃ©butant approach brings its own flavor to the table.
While dance music from Kiev might seem surprising, what do we really know about this city’s energy? From the place where so many things are happening these days, maybe itâ€™s time to see something else unfold.
