Darkrad, DJane Jana Dark


The project Darkrad was founded in 2008 by a famous figure on Moscow underground scene DJ JanaDark. Being the only member she realizes her deepest feelings and thoughts in it. Experiments with voice, gloomy electronic beats and mysterious fragile melodies - all this is Darkrad. In the name of the project the word "Windrad" is used, which in German means "Windmill". The "Darkrad" is a windmill, whose blades capture the hidden energies of a human's soul and transform them into the dark soundscapes. For relatively short period of time the project had participated in a number of events, like TanzFront, Hard-2b-Core, Sequence, Syn(th)drom together with such artists as Mono No Aware (DE), Flint Glass (FR), Brighter Death now (SW), IRM (SW), The Teknoist (UK), Passenger of shit (AU), Sonic Overkill (DE) etc. The tracks appeared on compilations Absetzer, Industrial Madness, Rocoracle Magazine. The live performance of Darkrad is an ocean of feelings from the sombre corners of the subconsciousness, which doesn't supress and turn off the emotions, but sharpen them to a sometimes frightening peak.
