KZ - DJ SET
Nazira is an indelible piece of the New East movement — a shining example of post-Soviet experiential experimentation within the wondrous electronic underground that nests comfortably in Almaty. She came onto the radar in 2016 through her Unsound: Dislocation sets in Bishek and Dushabe and shortly thereafter debuted at the main festival in Krakow. From them on, Nazira began to draw attention from patrons worldwide through her adaptable approach to DJing, delivering emotive and expansive narratives with her sets, with sounds and selections that are unique and consistently memorable; so much so that she has been featured in Mixmag, Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, WePresent and The Guardian among others.
Between making waves for publications, she has also established herself within the Almaty scene as a beacon for burgeoning DJs and performers with ZVUK, a DIY event series that makes its home wherever the vibe will take it. Since it began in August 2016, the series has welcomed explorative sounds and inclusivity for self-expression. Nazira also established a rapport with Radio Cómeme; initially beginning with her encapsulating “Shameless Dancing” mixtape in late 2017, which has now evolved into a monthly radio show entitled “Theory of Nothing.”
