For this episode of our podcast series, we are more than happy to properly introduce Ava Vas, a young and passionate selector who recently made her first steps on the local scene.
Self-taught and highly determined, Ava Vas or Avva is a fresh figure of the female Romanian techno scene, currently based in Cluj-Napoca. So far, she only performed in Romania at various parties in Cluj, Sibiu, Baia Mare, Brasov, Busteni and Alba Iulia, sharing the decks with lesser-known DJs and rising names in the scene like Andrei Lupsan, Eizo, Khaleea, Malice, Mofescu and Chris Low. She was often spotted on the line-ups at the Girls Love Techno events, a series where the ladies take over the mixer, CDJs, turntables and soundsystem, providing a modern and engaging house and techno sound for the people on the dancefloor.
As we like to support young artists and Ava’s recording for last year’s feeder sound Open Call for DJs stood out as a very dynamic and beautiful musical journey, we invited her to deliver a special mix for our ongoing podcast series which now counts 250 sets. Even though she just started to express herself through music, we’re sure that her career will rapidly evolve, as her selections are intriguing and delightful, characterised by organic transitions and carefully picked tracks.
“Music is all around us. Just let the sounds come in your life and create magical moments.” – Ava Vas
feeder sound 250 mixed by Ava Vas reveals a steady-paced blend of deep house, tech house and just a pinch of minimal in order to elegantly add more flavour to the whole trip. The selected tracks gently morph one into another, providing spacious and dreamy build-ups from time to time while also generating tension and dynamic moments.
