INTRINSIC Exclusive mix by Vlada
Operating in Berlin via Moscow, Vlada’s work as an artist is marked by her incessant travelling and widening boundaries of perception.
From what started with formal tuition on the piano, her sonic explorations have taken her through jazz, funk, and beyond. Caressing the nuances of melody, groove, and mood, Vlada journeys through the various strands of sound condense mesmerisingly under the curiosity of night.
Later this summer she travels to Castelnaud-la-Chapelle in South-West France for a performance at the first edition of INTRINSIC – an immersive 3-day event consisting of ambient and experimental music, stunning projection mapping visuals, healing arts, and more. The festival launches after previously hosting a series of intimate events in London for the past 2 years.
Located at the beautiful and historic Le Parc de Joséphine Baker, the site is overlooked by the grand Chateau des Milandes castle, and sits beside the Dordogne river. With high-quality sound systems, nature-inspired site production, and thoughtful curation, INTRINSIC France will be an opportunity to have an immersive experience away from civilisation and every-day life.

This isn’t a restlessness that‘s just confined to her music, it’s in her very nature, as someone who is constantly on the move.
Vlada’s selection and overall style matches her penchant for small, intimate, sometimes dark venues, while her natural fluidness, rhythm and internal polarity as an artist and as an individual is matched by a love and deep connection to the sea…
